    Carnival vibe enhances Hard Rock series

    No Comments

    From the Buffalo News:

    Perhaps more than any other free, outdoor concert series in Western New York, Hard Rock Rocks Old Falls Street is presented as a community event more than just a big concert with basic concessions.

    Saturday night, the two blocks of Old Falls Street were filled with puppeteers, in-your-face mimes, vendors and even Hard Rock’s in-house Bulgarian breakdancing twins. There also was a crew from Niagara Arts and Cultural Center working the crowd to raffle a guitar donated by Generations Music and autographed by the headlining performers – veteran Canadian rockers Sloan. And, true to form of a tourism community, the guitar was won by a Californian.

    What the streets lacked, however, was a huge crowd. The third installment of the six-week series saw a significant dip in attendance since classic rock retreads The Guess Who opened.
