Kenan Center Event to Celebrate Completion of Arena Capital Projects

Kenan Center  Event to Celebrate Completion of Arena Capital Projects

This month the Kenan Center in Lockport will celebrate a milestone in its plans to expand and upgrade the recreational facilities of the Kenan Center Arena. A new soccer turf has been installed and will be officially unveiled at a ribbon-cutting event on Thursday, January 27 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Opening remarks will be followed by a team practice for the five to eight-year-olds and scrimmage games by the Lockport Soccer Club.

The original artificial turf was purchased in the mid-90s, and the Kenan Center established at that time a depreciation fund for the eventual replacement of the turf. Revenues from candy selling efforts by the players and the Kenan Soccer Committee helped to build the fund. Larger donations were provided by area funders to reach the final goals.  Funders include the Grigg-Lewis Foundation, Kenan Arts Council, Rotary Club of Lockport, and Lockport Lions Club.

Grammy Nominated Singer Offers Free Performance

Grammy Nominated Singer Offers Free Performance

NIAGARA FALLS, NY – Grammy nominated singer James Blunt is offering up his talents for a free happy hour performance on Tuesday, January 25th at the Hard Rock Café.

A show for all ages, the evening kicks off at 7:00 pm and will offer up a musical selection from Blunt’s new album.

“It captures a bit of the mood of the early ‘80s. There was a global atmosphere in the West that we could do anything – the same optimism we felt as teenagers,” Blunt said. “‘Some Kind of Trouble’ really captures that same sense of freedom and excitement and naivety.”

Blunt has received numerous awards and accolades including two Brit Awards, two World Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV European Music Award and five Grammy nominations.
