Band’s Visit Ends 12-Year Run

Batavia, NY- After more than 12 years together, Stone Row is near the end of its journey as a band and on Friday, March 31, 2017 from 7:30 – 10 p.m., the group will return to GCC for its final show.

“We’ve had a lot of fun and GCC has been great to us,” said Stone Row front man and bassist Glenn Bernardis. “It will be a very bittersweet performance, but we all have future plans and projects that we’re excited about.”

 

Inspired by cultural diversity and fueled by a deep artistic passion, Stone Row has put on hundreds of shows over the years, weaving a rich tapestry of Celtic and world music. Band members Jayson Clark, Nick Corallo, Katie Clark and Dave Schmeidler have been nominated for five Buffalo Music Awards, and were named the 2010 “Top Original Alternative Band” by Buffalo Music.

 

“This group has been a nice melting pot of ideas,” Bernardis explained of the band’s acclaim. “I’ve loved every second playing with them.”
