Musician Medics

“Playing it Forward” for others in the Western New York Community

Music has long been regarded as source of healing forpatients faced with illness.  

Officially launched in January of 2013, The Buffalo MusicHall of Fame Musician Medics Program was inspired and modeled after othersimilar programs across the country with the goal of providing musical reliefto patients and families in the Western New York area. 

Local and national musicians volunteer their time to performseveral songs acoustic and talk to patients in an up close and personal setting,such as a small gathering space or an individual hospital room.
The program has entertained patients and their families atRoswell Park Cancer Institute, Veteran’s Hospital locations in Buffalo and Batavia,as well as Women & Children’s Hospital, the Buffalo City Mission and the VAAdult Day Care Center in Amherst.
