Browse local artwork for sale by selected area artists, enjoy libations and move to the rhythm and blues stylings of Darryl Buchanan and the Reflections. A South Bend native, Buchanan was discovered and recruited by Motown’s legendary sax man, Junior Walker, with whom he toured the United States, Canada and Europe as the opening act; their last performance was at New York’s famed Apollo Theatre, before Walker’s untimely death in 1995.
Buchanan has performed on numerous TV shows including NBC’s Saturday Night Live and Good Morning America and with many legendary R&B artists. His musical talents and stage persona have earned him popularity with diverse crowds worldwide. Vocalist Johnny “JD” Davis and the Band The Reflections join in, creating superb vocal harmonies.
