ELI’s Next Show: TBA.
ELI: The three lead vocalists are headed by Phil Hudson (The Road), and include Mark Valentino (Hit n Run) and “I dont get any respect” Tommy Gariano (A-List). The backbone of the band revolves around the musical expertise of Rick Ryan (Weekend) on bass, Tony Dalfonso (Party of Nine) on lead guitar, Mike Carroll (Boys of Summer) on Keyboards and founding member”Paulie” Battaglia (Changes) on drums.
What do you get or call a band, when you decide to assemble the BEST MUSICIANS Buffalo has ever presented to the stages of Western New York? A collection of ALL-STARS of Local Legends, you could even say… Elite members of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame on one Project? You get an assembly of talent that no one ever dared to dream even possible! What do you do with this assembly of Top Performers now that they join forces? You create a Super Group that pays tribute to a beloved son of Buffalo and his band. The Great Cory Wells of Three Dog Night! They did debut at the Forum in the Maple-Ridge Plaza, Amherst, NY. June 1st.
