In honor of the Central Terminal’s 82nd anniversary of when the first train departed from the station in 1929, the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation is hosting Deco-Fest 2011: To Celebrate the Swing & Style of the Central Terminal on Friday night. All proceeds from this event will be put towards restoring one of Buffalo’s most impressive pieces of architecture.
Deco-Fest 2011 will feature multi-platinum national recording artists, The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and also opening acts by Blue Ribbon Bastards, The Royal Crowns and Krypton 88. Other activities keeping in theme with the art-deco style are incorporated as well. Kelly “Kelvis” Welsted, a professional model from Retro Lovely, a magazine for enthusiasts of high-end pin-up photography, will be hosting a meet & greet with exclusive photos taken for this event. Take the chance to BECOME a pin-up model as Scarlet Noir Photographic offers a variety of photo shoot packages. Swing dance lessons will be available so you can dance to the music in style.
