We have great working relationships with a variety of venues in the Buffalo, NY & Rochester, NY areas sized from 100 capacity to 5000 capacity. Greg Burt also runs Wavelink Agency (tour booking agency) and works as a talent buyer for Rochester Entertainment along with doing the in-house booking for Stamps The Bar (venue) & performing in his own bands. Greg has a passion for booking/promoting shows, and keeps up on it all on the side of his full-time day job & family life.

"A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts."

What makes us different than most other promoter/talent buying organizations is that we are completely volunteer-run & not-for-profit. Any money made from a show goes towards the next event. Our emphasis is on making sure everyone has a good experience. From the performers, to the staff, to every attendee who comes out to an event. We do what we do for all of you, and we thank you so much for continuing to support us and help us grow over the years. If you ever have any questions or concerns, just email us at ForTheMusicBuffalo@Gmail.com and we'd be happy to talk to you!
