Buffalo Funk Fest is a tribute event to the legendary Rick James. According to Biography,
Musician and singer James Ambrose Johnson, Jr., better known as Rick James, was born on February 1, 1948, in Buffalo, New York. The third of eight children, James was raised in a strict Catholic household by his single mother. With music in his blood (his uncle was Melvin Franklin, bass vocalist of The Temptations), James pursued a music career from an early age.
The event is free and open to the public.
