The Buffalo Colored Musicians Club has added valuable cultural depth to the City of Buffalo and has greatly enriched the lives of the musicians and the members who have participated throughout its existence. This includes many members of Buffalo’s African American community. “This place is somewhere we started and it just built up, it is somewhere to call your own, it represents black people,” Dunlop remarked. “Historically, Buffalo was a convenient pipeline between New York City and the West, South, and even North into Canada,” explained Scott. “It was an intricate area which held a lot of jobs and entertainment.” So how do we explain the miracle which has kept the Club alive? “Buffalo has a lot of pure jazz lovers; it is a music town,” Scott hypothesized, “not only music but any kind of arts. We can only hope that the great legacy left by this Club will carry on into the future and that it will be around for upcoming generations to visit, both in the names of education and an old fashioned good time.”
