Once... we arrived it was a freezing cold night and parking was several lots away. My 5 year old was bundled but it was dark, slippery, unsafe and an excessivel
Once we arrived there was no security check at all. In this day and age that makes no sense. It’s pure laziness and inviting trouble. Large bags of all sorts being carried in and no one checking them. The staff seemed more concerned with stopping parents from bringing snacks in the theater than ensuring someone didn’t come in with a loaded weapon.
If the center for the arts wishes to host events for small children they should have the decency to provide well lit, close dedicated parking. If they are unable to do so then patrons should be given the option of valet.

Overall a poor job. I much prefer Shea’s where there is great parking & Security. Until UB can start providing basic services like safe parking and security they should refrain from offering shows for kids.

Long-time friends Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin come together on stage for one incredible acoustic evening of music as these two master performers and songwriters share songs and stories.
Singer, composer and actor Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-de...fying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett's live performances show not only the breadth of this legend's deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Among his many accolades, he has won four Grammy Awards, was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician.
Singer, songwriter and author Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing 11 albums and establishing herself as one of America's greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for "Sunny Came Home." Colvin was awarded the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association.
The legendary Kenny Rogers packed the CFA last night, taking fans on a trip down memory lane and celebrating his 60-year career in music. Thanks to all who attended. The concert also raised $65,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York!
