BID announces change in entertainment line-up for Summer in the City tomorrow

By Billie Owens

Press release:

As always the Batavia Business Improvement District (BID) strives to bring great entertainment and events to Downtown. Unfortunately, due to medical reasons, Flatop Gypsy can no longer play at Summer in the City. Although the BID is sympathetic to the band’s situation, they are pleased to announce that the OHMS Band will be playing in their spot.

Therefore, the line-up for bands for Summer in the City includes the Old Hippies (1-2 p.m.), OHMS Band (rock music; 4-6 p.m.), and of course Terry “Elvis” Buchwald (7-9 p.m.).

The BID, which is an independent non-profit organization, is dedicated to the revitalization of Downtown. Every year it has a group of dedicated volunteers to help organize the event and/or help the day of the event. If anyone would like to help the day of the event, they are still looking for strong volunteers for take-down at 9 p.m.

The BID would like to thank its major sponsors Alpina Foods, The Batavian, The Home Depot, and WBTA Radio as well as several other sponsors who helped make this annual event happen once again.
