Sad Day for Music Community

PETER GORETTI long time owner of the Essex St. Pub, Showplace, and more recently the Tralf, died unexpectedly of a heart attack this morning. Peter was one of Buffalo’s greatest supporters of live music and through his businesses contributed something to Buffalo few other people can match. We will all miss him. Services will no doubt be announced soon in the Buffalo News.
