Q: I'd like to play in Buffalo. Is their much to do for a solo acoustic artist there?

A: Miche ... you should contact Merge. It's a restaurant that also features music. They have a nice stage and a PA. Excellent very healthy food. I played there a few times when they first opened. At that time they didn't "pay" except for a meal... and you could take tips and sell merch. However... that was a while back. Since then they've really established themselves. They may pay now. Worth checking out certainly. Just Google their website. They are on Delaware Ave. Another place is Ashker's Juice Bar... on Elmwood. You wouldn't even need a pa in there, hardly. It's a popular place with a good performing space. I have no idea if they pay. I'm just haven't been "in the market" ... you know. There's always Nietzsche's on Allen Street. They do door and bar split. Probably would love you on a weeknight .. or for an early show on the weekend. They have a small stage area by the bar that would be perfect for you. ... and a big stage in the back for bands or acts with large local following. You already know young audiences. How about contacting Buffalo Place. They organize the big concerts downtown and a variety of events. Hardware Cafe on Allen Street is a good venue... owned by Mark Goldman. That would be a good fit for you. Pausa Art House... on Wadsworth... run by a UB Trumpet Professor Jon Nelson. They present a very interesting and eclectic range of music ... classy... Phoenix Restaurant on Amherst Street has music. Sportsmen's Tavern... you could go over there too. Ask Cathy Carfagna about them. In other words... Yes, there are a lot of opportunities here.
