On Friday the 13th, western New York’s Dave Presley brought a few friends to the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls, New York for a night of full out rock and roll.

With Buffalo Music Hall of Famers Dave Presley on drums, George Puleo on rhythm guitar, Jim Wynne on bass, and Dave Constantino on lead guitar and vocals the guys rattled the rafters with original songs and a few cover tunes thrown in.

Seasoned veterans who have played together for many years, the guys quickly picked up on any unfamiliar tunes and play the song like they had been doing so for years.


Not even an errant drum stick slowed Dave Presley who continued to play while grabbing a new stick.

After opening the night with “Wishing Well”, the night’s music included “Badge”, “Born Under a Bad Sign”, “Sunshine of Your Love”, “Face the End”, “Too Rollin’ Stoned”, “Ooh Babe”, “Come Together”, “Walkin’ By Myself”, “Bump in the Road”, “Them Changes”, wich included a drum solo with sticks flying, “Whisky Train”, “Hoochie Coochie Man”, “IN Memory of Elizabeth Reed”, “Day of the Eagle”, Goin’ Down”, and “Manic Depression”.

With a house filled with friends and fellow musicians, Dave Presley and Friends gave a master class in how to rock the stage.
