Hi, I'm Buddy Reed. I'm a blues guitarist. Have been for 50 years. Materially, I don't have much to show for all these years of playing (Broke is my middle name), but I've been blessed with many many friends who share my love for this ol' gut bucket music.
Right now, I'm at a crucial crossroad. I recently left my home in Humboldt County, leaving behind my daughter and grandchildren (man, I miss em every day!) to try and revive my musical career in SoCal where I began. It hasn't been easy...gigs are scarcer than ever.
And just to make things more challenging, my ol' PT Cruiser kept rolling just long enough to get me here, and then died from multiple internal injuries. Due to the kindness of friends, I have a place to stay and another car. Well, HAD another car....that one died, too. You won't believe what a tranny replacement for a Saturn costs! I hate to ask, but like I said, this is a make it or break it time for me now. If you can spare a little dough, I'll love ya forever.
Course, what I'd really love to do is sing and play for you. If ya know of a joint that could use a red hot 3 piece blues band, let me know. Or if you'd like to hire us for your next B-day party or BBQ, hit me up!
God bless you
