"Our fridaynightbash!® series is one of the great summer traditions in Western New York," said Mike Buczkowski, Vice President/General Manager of the Bisons. "As we celebrate 'The Year of the Bisons Fan,' we wanted to bring the excitement of our pre-game celebrations out in front of the ballpark for everyone to enjoy."
fridaynightbash!® plaza parties will begin two hours before first pitch, except for a 4:30 p.m. start time on Opening Day, Friday, April 11 against the Toledo Mud Hens (6:05 p.m. first pitch). Fans with or without a game ticket can enter the 3,500 square ft. space in front of the Bisons ticket office. The team will offer $3 hot dogs, hamburgers, Italian sausages and 16 oz. draft beer. Coca-Cola soft drinks and bottled water will also be available for just $2.
All fridaynightbash!® games will also include a post-game Fireworks Show, presented by HSBC Bank USA, N.A.
The entertainment schedule for the plaza parties will begin with national touring artists Savannah Jack on Opening Day and include country, blues, classic rock, pop, dance and alternative rock music acts throughout the season.
"There are some very talented bands in our area that represent our wide array of genres," said Matt La Sota, Director of Game Day Entertainment and Promotions for the Buffalo Bisons. "We think our diverse line-up of entertainment will give something to Bisons fans of all musical interests."
