Hundreds gathered at the Statler hotel in downtown Buffalo to celebrate the life of one of Western New York's best known performers.

Joey Scinta passed away last month after suffering a series of strokes. He and his family have lived in Las Vegas for almost 20 years. After being laid to rest in Vegas friends and family in WNY put on a party to honor Joey.

Joey's brother, Frankie was moved to see how many people showed up.

“It's a sad moment in my life. But when you have this kind of love and you're surrounded by love that's the greatest feeling in the world,” said Frankie.
