TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Music Hall of fame has welcomed its 37th class of inductees.

Thursday, October 3rd — six new names were added to the ranks of some of the best this city has produced when it comes to music.

Cynthia “First Sister” Moore

LeRoi Caldwell Johnson

Kenny Peterson

Every Time I Die

Jim Crean

And NIETZSCHE'S Joe Rubino

Anthony Casuccio, president of the BMHOF, said this class just proves you can’t nail down a particular “style” when it comes to Buffalo music.

Because, you know what? The musicians — they cut their teeth here, there are so many opportunities here in Buffalo that when they leave Buffalo they’re the first call of musicians. They’re the first people that (others) want in their bands, because they’re so good, they’re so talented because of the opportunities that they’ve gotten here in Buffalo.”

Inductee Cynthia Moore said she hopes more people will come to see Buffalo as a pool for talent.

“I’ve met a lot of talented musicians here… and they have a lot to offer this city and the world… just give us a chance.”
