Buffalo is a hockey town.  From the backyard rinks, to the big ice at the arena, hockey is a way of life in Western New York.

Introducing Hocktoberfest, the official event to celebrate the start of hockey season in the best hockey town in the United States, Buffalo, NY.  A great evening of live music, special appearances, Chiclets Cup personalities and hockey themed activities…live in the backyard of Pearl Street Grill & Brewery.

The Line-up:

The Zamboni’s 

Headlining Hocktoberfest will be the world’s only hockey-rock band, The Zamboni’s.  The Zambonis, having played major events including the NHL All Star Game and the NCAA Frozen Four, will bring their high-energy hockey themed songs to Buffalo for the first time since 2005.  The Zamboni’s will also perform a few Buffalo themed songs, including “Hockey Party” and “Great Scott” to celebrate the great history of hockey in Buffalo.
