News Contributing Reviewer, Nancy Parisi of The Buffalo News in Buffalo, New York wrote a positive article regarding The Fixx and Wang Chung who performed at Canalside on July 25, 2013. An excerpt from her article follows:

Originating from the time when acid-washed jeans, “Just Say No,” oversized shoulder pads, and drum machines ruled the land, The Fixx and Wang Chung proved that some ’80s products remain relevant – and attractive. Both bands, pop staples of clubs and radio of that era, performed Thursday at Canalside.

Wang Chung hit the stage with vocalist Jack Hues noting immediately that it was a “small but perfectly formed crowd.” They began their set with three from their 2012 recording, “Tazer Up!,” a topical array of tunes.

Their second selection, “Let’s Get Along,” was enlivened by a departure from the song’s lyrics to channel the power of their signature “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” with chorus calling for everyone to “Wang Chung tonight.” The guitar work and vocals of original bandmate Nick Feldman were rock solid. Joining the two onstage were Josh Thompson on drums, and Tony Banks on vintage-sounding synthesizer.
