With the "All 50 States.." series on hiatus, I am entering a new project. "Biofeedback" will be a series where I will write bios for bands. It's intended to be a positive bio of bands in the festival scene.
Here's my first entry, Bud and Budd: The Kind Buds
The Kind Buds, Bud and Budd, are a "best of both worlds' band. The acoustic duo spend their Winters playing at all of the greatest ski resorts in Vermont and their Summers playing festivals like Gathering Of The Vibes, A Bear's Picnic, Nateva Music Festival, and Strangecreek Campout. They've been selected for legendary events like Oregon Country Fair but at the same time you have a good chance of their playing your request. Mixing smooth flowing originals and raucous acoustic stylings of The Grateful Dead, The Kind Buds are a crowd favorite. Known as much for their cover of Pink Floyd's Echoes as they are for Grateful Dead's Althea, they have something for everyone. The harmonies of The Buds have made a fan and collaborator out of Grateful Dead Hour host, David Gans. The Kind Buds are musicians for the best reasons, they love to play, they love those who seek out their sets and will play as long as there is somebody there to listen.
