CreativeMornings / Buffalo presents

A Talk by Buffalo Musician Myron Deputat

Part of a Series of Talks on Tradition

Myron Deputat grew up in Clarence NY, and has been playing music since the age of 5. Over the years he has performed in a number of ensembles, both classical and contemporary. In 1998 he formed a local rock band called Those Idiots. In 2001 his group was asked to play at the Adam Mickiewicz Library on the east side of Buffalo for their traditional Dyngus Day celebration. At that performance, the group adopted their practice of playing contemporary songs in the style of polka music. The band became an instant hit with audiences both young and old, and has been instrumental in helping to revive Dyngus Day celebrations in Buffalo. Myron continues to develop his skills as a musician, songwriter, producer, and engineer, thereby expanding his outlets for creative endeavors.

This event is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required, here:

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York City’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world (including Buffalo) to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.

CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and longterm global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!
