Donny Buggs

D Buggs (Back to Basic)


D Buggs, I am a new artist on the scene but old on the horizon in the entertainment field. D Buggs has been around as long as some of the favorite artists born but with his up and down ride in the entertainment field is a story by itself. Grew up in Houston, Texas and at the age of sixteen opened shows with the late Ted Taylor performing in groups with guys twice his age. D Buggs formed groups throughout his junior and senior high school years performing around the state of Texas and Louisiana. After graduating from high school, he joined a group with his brother who was also talented, also sung in school with the once Archie Bell and the Drells. The group formed was called Justice which was the first group out of Houston to sign with a major label (Epic CBS). Justice opened acts for such groups as Bob Marley & Whalers, Temptations, Tavares, Natalie Cole, Nancy Wilson, B B King, Bobby Bland, Manhattans, Dramatics and the lists goes on…

After signing with Epic CBS they recorded the album with great promising writers such as Leo Sayers, Steve Winwood (which they did the remake of “Gimme Some Lovin’” and Leo Sayers, “Easy to Love” which hit the billboard top charts. Other writers such as jerry Butler song, “Everything’s Cool”, Ambrosia which Justice recorded first, “That’s How Much I Feel”. After completing the album, the five men vocal group, Justice returned to Houston. Upon returning Bass Singer, Linwood Freeman got ill and died.

Leaving Justice in search of a bass singer after an unsuccessful search, the group had to continue with the four. After the release of a 12” version of “Gimme Some Lovin” and “Easy to Love” with Bobby and Donny Buggs performing lead it was thought that the album would be a success but Epic CBS wanted a five-man vocal group. The following year, Justice was released and Epic CBS picked up the Jacksons from Motown. The Jacksons picked up Randy. Well and there was the five-vocal group – those are the breaks. After being released, the group broke up but Bobby and Donny, brothers, continue singing today. D Buggs (Donny) have released his new CD hoping someone still love that soulful unique first tenor. New CD titled “Back to Basics”. Final note, as of today, Bobby, lead singer of “Gimme Some Lovin” and Donny, lead singer of “Easy to Love” is being sold on EBay and Amazon.com
