Tommy Dudley, aka the Blues Buddha, is a rough and tumble blues vocalist who, in his own words, has “picked up stylistic influences from people he admires and mixes them into his own musical gumbo. “
Eclectic influences include: R&B artists Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, the straight-ahead blues, rock and soul of Eric Burdon and Tom Jones. The Blues Buddha is a popular figure in the NY Metro area club scene and performs at multiple venues several nights per week.
“The Buddha is Back! To know The Buddha is to love his unique, infectious havin’-a-good-time style. If you’ve never seen these guys, you’re missing out on one of the most fun and exciting Blues acts in the Tri-State area.”
Jeanie and Rich Credidio of 12 Grapes Restaurant in Peekskill, NY
“Buddha got a Voice So big You swear he wouldn’t need a Mic!”
Dave Fields, Big City Rythm and Blues Magazine
“It’s all about an awaking of the Spirit. I hope the Blues Buddha brings that message to the Blues. So let me lift your Spirit and Rock your Rooster. Come on and do the Buddha Boogie with me.”
