On May 1 from 3:00 – 9:00 pm, we are proud to present a Lafayette Tap Room (LTR) Reunion at the Tacoma Preforming Arts Center (T-PAC). T-PAC is a multi-use center with unlimited possibilities as a performance venue. We reached out to the performers that were part of the fabric of the LTR. We would love for you to be a significant part of celebrating the 15-year legacy together with the founders Joe Silvaroli and Bob McCarthy and their former staff.
Our intention is not to exclude anyone, we used word of mouth and so far we have confirmations of the following performers at these approximate times for the day: The Core Band (Jack Civiletto, Brent Minet, Ray Hangen, Bob Ambrusko/Peter Piccirilli) will start us off followed by guests Dr. Z Joe Zappo and Tom Corsi. (4:00) Sharon Bailey, Ann Philippone and John Brady. (5:00) Andy Romanek, Steve Stempien and Doug Yeomans, (6:00) Pete Howard, John Riggi, Shaky Ray, Joe Skinner, Greg Zark, Donna Rose and Carol Jean Swist. (7:00-9:00) Mick Hayes, Rod Nickson, Jony James, Mr. Conrad and some other surprises!!!!
The Tap Room left an indelible imprint on our souls and put Buffalo on the map as a center for Blues and Roots Music. We will be forever grateful to them for creating a space to enjoy music that was filled with laughter and camaraderie serving as premier venue for local, regional and nation touring musicians.
Jack Civiletto is organizing the musical portion of the day. He will supply the back line and core band musicians as needed. 100% of the proceeds will fund Italian medical students to learn about American medicine, culture, and our way of life here in Buffalo while residing at T-PAC, thus also supporting our Arts Center. We would be honored if you could help us relive the joy we had years ago, and help continue the musical legacy. If you have friends that would like to come, please share the information.
Dave Scherrer, Jack Civiletto, T-PAC and others will have paper tickets for sale. You can buy tickets online here and they will be waiting for you at the door. The raffle tickets will be good for general admission and for prizes throughout the day; you do not need to be present to win. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and there is plenty of room to dance.
It is too close to the show to buy tickets online, please purchase tickets at the door. See you soon!
