Album Notes
Our debut Album, "When Push Comes To Shove" Was produced by two time Grammy nominated, one time recipient, Tim Sonnefeld at Milkboy Studios in Philadelphia. The album features performances on two songs by Co-Founder of New Orleans own Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Kirk Joseph on Sousaphone.

The Bullbuckers penmanship, and accents are from the States but the music's heartbeat at it’s source starts in Jamaica’s roots including elements of Mento Music, Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, and Dub mixed with Soul, Jazz, a splash of rock, and hip-hop.

"An excellent album of thumpers and thinkers in tow."
- Josh Davis, Salisbury Daily Times.

"The Bullbuckers' Ska sound has propelled them to the top of the Delaware music scene."
- Matt Amis, Out & About Magazine, Wilmington 2012

"The show (Trombone Shorty concert at the Bottle & Cork, Dewey Beach, DE) came with local flare thanks to the Bullbuckers, one of Delaware's most revered original bands (who) opened the show with an energetic set that had the whole crowd swaying to their set with a crescendo, performing their upbeat album track, 'Don't You Know'."
-Lauren Frisby, Spark Magazine/Wilmington News Journal

"A fusion of soul-searing and foot-stomping music - ska like you've never heard it (unless you were living in the Islands in the 60s), soul and a tinge of hip-hop. It's a Wilmington sound that has roots - and fans - round the globe."
-The Examiner

"Reputed as one of the best live bands around this band has been ripping up shows and gaining considerable respect on the east coast."
- Bandblurb.com,

"This six-piece group with a horn section is like the ultimate party band. Whether they are playing reggae or another style"
- Tish Michel, The Coconut Times, Ocean City

"Top-notch musicianship is a hallmark of The Bullbuckers."
- Roger Hillis, The Beach Comber, The Delaware News Journal

"The Bullbuckers are the livest band in Delaware."
- DJ Thorru 91.3 WVUD

BULL-BUCKER sb dial; A man who thinks he is strong enough to butt a bull; a belligerent person; bully.
1959, Mr. J.E. Bowen: The word 'bull-bucker' as used in Westmoreland means someone who is assuming power over others... 'bull-bucker' is often used in combination with 'duppy conqueror', thus: "You are a bull-bucker and duppy conqueror but you can't frighten me".
1959, O.P. Cousins Kgn: Bullbucker refers to a notorious Bad man in the area.

Found on Pandora
I heard these guys on Pandora and I had to have their CD. If you want a CD to put you in a good mood, this is it. Bullbuckers have a great horn section, vocals, guitars, drums, you name it! The songs are real and energetic; if you are a ska/reggae music lover than you can't go wrong with this CD.


Reggae meets party music
I got turned on to these guys last summer and have been listening to their album since! It's awesome party music or to bump in your car. They sound like some of my favorite reggae artists for relaxation but also have a lot of high energy songs that can really hype you up.

Great Buy!!
