Batavia chiroprator Tom Mazurkiewicz, in plaid shirt, is pictured above next to national recording artist Joey Belladonna (far left), former lead singer of Anthrax. Belladonna is playing at 10 tonight at T.F. Brown's, 214 Main St., Batavia, with his cover band Big Chief Way.

Also pictured next to Mazurkiewicz is Dave Mickelson, bass player, and Joe Precourt (far right), lead guitarist. They were having dinner this evening at Yume Bistro in Batavia.

Mazurkiewicz says his friendship with Belladonna started 15 years ago when he was working backstage at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, and Belladonna, a five-time Grammy Award nominee, needed a chiropractic adjustment. The two guys became friends instantly and regularly meet for dinner or attend local sporting events in Western New York, such as Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres games.

Belladonna says he enjoys making stops in Batavia to play and visit with friends.
