I love how old-school venues like Kleinhans Music Hall are: the big brass doors, the decor, the fancy feel of the whole place. I'm a fan of dingy little clubs, don't get me wrong, but I've seen some awesome shows at Kleinhans.
I've never given much thought to what used to be where the venue now stands; honestly, it's one of those buildings I just sort of assumed had been there basically forever. Turns out I was wrong.
Most Buffalonians can recall Pano's humble beginnings before the huge remodel they did a few years back -- the brick-and-white-sided building, the bright blue awning, the cute, diner-y feel of it all. It was one of my favorite places to have lunch when I was finally allowed to leave school during senior year free periods (at Nardin, if you're wondering).
It takes a powerhouse to go toe-to-toe with Mick Jagger and successfully pull off Merry Clayton's vocals in "Gimme Shelter," one of the most recognizable female vocal parts of all time and one of the Stones' greatest songs.
Since news broke of Friday's (December 14) tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., so many people -- at our studio, in Buffalo and across the country -- have been asking what they can do to help. And while nothing we can do will ever really be enough, we want to help Buffalonians show their support for our East Coast neighbors.
