Buster Blue, an indie-infused, folk-driven band with an “eclectic sound that jumps from breezy folk pop to loud unhinged rock and sounds like it belongs in an illicit speakeasy retrofitted for the new millennium” will be performing live at the Inyo Council for the Arts later this month.
The band’s sound and performance has garnered recognition nationally, with accolades from Billboard Magazine exclaiming, “in the midst of an Americana Roots revival, Buster Blue are troubadours.” As well in their home market of Reno, Buster Blue is revered as the band poised to be the most important to ever emerge out of the Reno Indie music scene, Reno-Tahoe Tonight.”
The band has also made it into the international ranks with praise from Ondarock, Italy’s most influential music blog, commends the band’s music as “folk with purpose.”
In the short time of just more than a year, Buster Blue has been moving into marquee venues, been invited to top perform at level festivals and in support positions for national touring bands such as Warren Haynes Band and Beats Antique at the Grand Sierra Resort showroom (1,900 capacity).
Buster Blue was also the featured band for the Rock’n’Bowla event supporting the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson Research in Los Angeles at L.A. Live in Spring 2011.
The band is continuing their “breakout” touring with performances at the Fall Strawberry Music Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, Wash., Millpond Music Festival as well as commanding a relentless tour schedule throughout the western United States.
Tickets for the Jan. 14 performance are $15 adults, $12 students.
Tickets can be purchased by phone or in person at Inyo Council for the Arts, located at 137 S. Main St. in Bishop.
