Milestone anniversary promises kicked-up party fun

The Buffalo History Museum will dance into its 10th annual "Party on the Portico" summer happy hour series from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 19. This year's lineup of bands is especially selected with the emphasis on "party."

The milestone anniversary will feature more history-related activities and the continued (and popular) 15-minute mini-tours. More details will be announced as planners gear up to make the 10th anniversary indoor-outdoor celebration extra memorable.

Dates and Bands

June 19 - The Ifs led by prolific and world-traveled musician Geno McNamus. This band gives a "British Invasion" pop history lesson through the music of the Rolling Stones, Beatles and others.

July 17 - Cock Robin will bring back the "magical moments that electrified the '70s." Get ready for some Bad Company, Queen, Bowie, Deep Purple and much more.

August 21 - The Rockaz, "Built on folk from all four corners of Buffalo." The Rockaz is described as a unique blend of soul, reggae, R&B and funk, served best on the dance floor.


Location: One Museum Court (Elmwood Avenue and Nottingham Terrace)

Tickets: $5 member/$10 general (Tickets go on sale May 15)

The series runs rain or shine and is exclusively for guests ages 21 and over.

At each "Party on the Portico," guests can enjoy live music, party snacks, a cash bar, drawings, surprises and unique views of Mirror Lake, Delaware Park and the Japanese Garden - all from the portico and steps of the iconic museum.
