Music has long been regarded as source of healing for patients faced with illness. 

Officially launched in January of 2013, the mission of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Musician Medics Initiative is to provide comfort through the power of music to individuals and families during their time of need.

Local musicians volunteer their time on a monthly basis to perform and speak to patients in up close and personal setting, such as a small gathering space or an individual hospital room. In addition, Buffalo Music Hall of Fame members play an important role, serving as “ambassadors” on site, working closely with both the Musician Medic performers and hospital staff on site during each appearance.

The event is Sunday, November 27th from 2:00pm-5:00pm at the Sportsmans Tavern.
