Larkin Square is pleased to announce the 2018 season of KeyBank Live at Larkin. Kicking off on June 6, this 13-week lineup (there will be no concert on July 4) will feature both local and nationally touring bands – free and open for the public to enjoy. The curated series features a range of genres, with something for everyone.
“We’re excited for our seventh season of KeyBank Live at Larkin, our signature music series,” said Larkin Square Director of Fun Leslie Zemsky. “We are pleased to continue our tradition of presenting the best of local music with the added twist of welcoming some nationally touring bands to Larkin Square. Wednesdays are now a neighborhood wide celebration with music following KeyBank Live at Larkin across the street at the Hydraulic Hearth.”
Collaborations with organizations like Arts Services Initiative’s program The Big Easy in Buffalo will also be an exciting new feature to KeyBank Live at Larkin. The Big Easy in Buffalo has partnered with Larkin Square on a new event – New Orleans Night, with music by John Papa Gros and Buffalo Brass Machine.
All Live at Larkin shows will have food trucks, specialty beverages and lawn games. Concerts begin at 5 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m. Parking and admission are free thanks to Larkin Square’s presenting sponsor KeyBank and sponsor Independent Health. Please visit larkinsquare.com for more information.
