Ellicottville Summer Music Festival 2019

The Ellicottville Chamber of Commerce, which produces the three-day music event, has finalized a banger lineup for this year’s slope side concerts at Holiday Valley.

On Saturday, July 2nd, ticket holders will be treated to “The Voices of Classic Rock”, featuring Practically Petty, an acclaimed Tom Petty tribute band, followed by Asia featuring John Payne with special guests John Elefante, former lead singer of Kansas, and Lou Gramm, the voice of Foreigner.

OPENING ACT: PRACTICALLY PETTY: If you love Tom Petty, then you’ll LOVE Practically Petty! The Tom Petty tribute band has been mesmerizing audiences throughout North America since forming in the Fall of 2009. Every performance is true to the spirit and essence of Tom Petty and the Heartbreaker, right down to the Tom Petty look and sound. The group pride themselves on utilizing the same equipment as the Heartbreakers just so as not to leave any stone unturned. Their extensive song catalog includes all of Petty’s hits with the Heartbreakers as well as his solo work and other side projects including The Traveling Wilburys. 

THE MAIN EVENT: Asia featuring John Payne will not only perform their classic hits, but will also invite John Elefante on stage to give the audience a taste of unforgettable Kansas hits. Not to be outdone, Luo Gramm will join Asia for their final set of the evening, jamming out to the classics of Foreigner.

ASIA FEATURING JOHN PAYNE: The British-American rock group band formed in 2007 following a schism in the lineup of Asia. The band is a continuation of singer and bassist John Payne’s career as the band’s frontman, which lasted from 1991 until 2006, when Asia's original 1982 lineup reunited. In December 2017, Payne and keyboardist Erik Norlander formed a new group, Dukes of the Orient, with various members and ex-members of Asia featuring John Payne as collaborators. Asia featuring John Payne remains active as a touring stage, and Ellicottville is excited to host him this summer as he performs hits such as “Go”, “Only Time Will Tell”, Who Will Stop the Rain”, “Don’t Cry”, “Sole Survivor” and “Heat of the Moment”.

JOHN ELEFANTE, FORMERLY OF KANSAS: American singer/songwriter John Elefante is an instrumentalist record producer most known for his tenure as frontman of the rock group Kansas, from 1981-1984.  Growing up, he sang and performed drums for his family band, The Brotherhood. As an artist, his credits include writing and singing lead vocals on three multi-platinum albums; as producer, his albums have earned numerous GMA Dove Awards, four Grammy Awards, and ten Grammy nominations. He has maintained a close working relationship with his brother, Dino (co-writer of several Kansas songs), throughout his career. Expect hits such as “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind”,

In addition to these star-powered acts, the Ellicottville Chamber is proud to host the return of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra the following day, Sunday, July 3rd, which, like in years past, will include a spectacular fireworks display orchestrated to the music of the BPO.
