About The Buds


The Buds provide a unique blend of familiar cover songs and original craft - songs of independence, love, desire, heartache, reflection, with a flair for social and political conscience - delivering a world of color in sound. Harmony vocals provide rich highlights with their adept playing.
Performing together as "The Buds" since 2009, the origins of the band go back as far as just before the beginning of the 21st Century, with relationships built out of various combinations of players until what is now recognized as "The Buds" became more constant.
With several song writers in the band, original music is aplenty, though the group is so comfortable together that a seemingly endless stream of favorite cover songs can often occur. Influences stemming from Dylan, Neil Young and The Grateful Dead, to various other artists that helped enrich the growth of Rock n Roll music in the 1970s, The Buds create a vast canopy of sound with a selection of music that pleases crowds young and old.
