Kind Bud's Kind Dubs

Bud, of The Kind Buds, creates acoustic guitar overdubs for an act he has named "Kind Dubs” and after 125 solo shows, his mastery of his looper is a skill to be heard and seen.   Bud records his guitar rhythm live on the looper;  he then hits a button which will begin to play the rhythm he recorded.  Bud then plays off that rhythm, taking leads and layering sounds.  A Kind Bud  show will have  a mixture of original tunes, Jerry Garcia, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and other funky tunes.  

 

For the holidays, Bud has created a 90 minute “Community Carol Sing A-Long” to bring family and friends together to sing during the holidays.  Participants are handed out a Christmas Carol Book, filled with the words to 21 beloved songs so the audience can sing together with Bud.

Kind Bud, a Rex Foundation artist, has been part of Grateful Dead Night at Fenway Park for two consecutive years.  Bud was part of Dead & Company's Boston Action Day, performing for Positive Legacy, making a positive impact on a homeless shelter in Boston.  Fans may have also experienced Bud at any of the great music festivals he has been a part of: Gathering of the Vibes; Rock N Roll Resort; Bear’s Picnic; Woodstock at Yasgur’s Farm; StrangeCreek; Wormtown, to name a few.   

 

Arty Lavigne,  of WDEV Radio Vermont,  had this to say about Bud, “Kind Bud, one guitar, one voice creating one community everywhere he goes.”
