Buffalo Musicians Against Autism to Release Second Annual Holiday CD!!!

On November 17th, BMAA will celebrate the release of their second annual Holiday CD, entitled My Favorite Gift is You, with a release party at the Central Park Grill at 2519 Main Street in Buffalo. There will be bands from the disc, tons of auctions with items generously donated by local organizations including Guitar Center, the Buffalo Sabres, and Yorkville Sound, manufacturer and distributor of Yorkville, Traynor, Apex, ART, and Alto brands. $7 gets you in the door, a copy of the CD, and your first drink free. Additionally, there will be 30 cent wings all night and music by bands from the CD including The Viva Noir, John Moore (from 53 Days), Melissa Kate, Middleman, CrashPulse, and The Transonics.

Other bands featured on the disc include Taylor Made Jazz, Scott Celani, Kenny Berry, Matt Surowiec and the Tricentennial Band, Glenn Colton, and so many others! (19 songs in all!!!) Last year’s CD sold out, and this year’s promises to do the same! CDs will also be available at all Record Theaters, New World Record at their new Delaware location, and the new Barnes and Noble on Transit.

These are the chances that a child born today will be affected by Autism, a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD) occurring in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and four times more likely to strike boys than girls. Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that all toddlers be screened twice before their second birthday.
In its mildest form, it impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. At its worst, it can be totally debilitating, leaving the person incapable of relating to the world around them and shut off from the people who love them the most. While there is no cure, there are excellent programs in Western New York whose goals are to bring those affected back to the world.

Buffalo Musicians Against Autism was begun to help these programs reach that goal.

All proceeds from the show and sale of the CD and the benefit show will go to Autistic Services of WNY, The WNY Chapter of the Autism Society of America, Summit Educational Resources, and the Niagara BOCES Autism Program.
