Buddy is a funky blues man, and he does more than just play music… he thrills his crowd with great blues guitar on his 335 Gibson and with some stage theatrics tossed in, he does indeed ‘smoke ya boots’. Buddy and his band play authentic blues, with a dash of didgeridoo!! Unique and funky!!
Buddy’s blues influences include all the Kings: Freddie, Albert and BB, Robert Delbert McClinton, with vast blues knowledge of the old blues men and a great respect tor their work. Buddy and his band have a unique stage presentation, they like to ‘go hard’ and give audiences their best.
Buddy says he “feels like a man ’bout to light a smoke at a petrol pump’….”
