‘Sunday Funday’ concert to showcase rising music stars

Jul 16, 2017 | Entertainment

Heineken Music, Medaille College and Focus Music Development proudly present the concert event of the summer at Buffalo Iron Works, located in downtown Buffalo’s booming Cobblestone District, on July 23. Admission will be $10, with doors opening at 5 p.m. and the show starting at 6 p.m.

The “Sunday Funday” concert will be the area’s first all ages, multi-genre concert event featuring rising stars in alternative rock, pop, EDM, R&B and alternative hip-hop.

BREAKERBOX (Alt Rock/Pop): Born out of Buffalo, this writing and production team of vocalist Christina DeNee‘ and drummer Scott Calandra are quickly making a name for themselves in the music industry with their entrepreneurial work ethic and creative live performances. With a unique blend of pop, rock, soul, metal and dance, BREAKERBOX powerfully fills the void left in between pop artists like Sia and Katy Perry and rock acts like Pretty Wreckless and Halestorm.

RYNO (Alt Pop/EDM): The latest musical endeavor from Buffalo native Ryan Jacob Doyle. Bringing more of an electronic sensibility to his craft, he has toured globally with past projects, winning the Hard Rock Cafe’s worldwide Battle of the Bands. As the winning act, he and his band More Than Me opened for Sir Paul McCartney at the main stage of the Hard Rock Calling Festival in London.

Triiinity Band featuring Maya (Pop/Funk/R&B): This powerhouse band of professionals who have toured the globe includes Rod Bonner, seven-year keyboardist for three-time Grammy nominated saxophonist Najee. Trinity Band drummer Daniel “DP on Drums” Powell is currently the touring drummer for both soul/R&B artist Marsha Ambrosius as well as the groove force behind three-time Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist Najee for the past four years.

Leading this talented trio will be rising star Maya By Name. Born and raised in Buffalo, 20-year-old Maya Satterwhite is an artist with a vision. Maya had an early familiarity with the stage, her father being an improv comedian and corporate actor who encouraged her interest in performing. She began to create a buzz after graduating from high school in 2014, performing acoustically at local open mic nights and bars.

Mindy Davey (Alt Pop/Hip-Hop): Life is definitely approaching a high note for Davey, 23, a singer-songwriter from Clarence who will be celebrating the release of her first album, “Humanity,“ on July 23. Her positive message and powerful lyrical content is quickly connecting Mindy with listeners around the country.
