BUFFALO, NY-July 2, 2016

What happens when a Buffalo music powerhouse and a doggedly determined non-profit come together in a musical partnership? Funk for a cause. On July 2, 2016, musical mega-talent Eric “Critt” Crittenden will partner with music-scene notables and local non-profit organization Save the Michaels of the World, Inc. in an effort to bring awareness to the opioid drug epidemic in America.

An event to honor the late, legendary Prince Rogers Nelson, The Purple Party is a celebration of a musical icon geared towards calling attention to the epidemic that took his life.

On April 21, 2016, prolific musician, songwriter and vocalist Prince was found dead at age 57 in his Paisley Park home. A legend had been snatched right out from his musical realm, and the world mourned.
