Buddy Rich Big Band

Buddy Rich, the Drummer’s Drummer, the Greatest Drummer Ever, One of a Kind,……………now that’s an intro!

The Buddy Rich Band has all of the excitement, drive, and showmanship that Buddy brought throughout his career. Not a tribute, not “The Next” Buddy Rich, but a full blown sixteen piece big band charging through Buddy’s original charts playing classics like Mercy, Mercy, Love For Sale, Nutville, and Birdland, along with new charts just as BR would have played them. An incredible group of talented musicians that bring Buddy’s music into the present day. This is not your grandparents music! No nostalgia. This is a contemporary take on a classic style. Buddy never looked back. He was a musical visionary who was always ahead of the curve. The band has toured from New York to London,

Hollywood to Tokyo.

This band features EMMY Award winning drummer Gregg Potter, who not only brings his power and charismatic drumming style to the music, but also possesses a stage presence and technique that would make Buddy proud. Cathy Rich, Buddy’s daughter, hosting the evening and singing, is as close as one could get to having Buddy there. With tales from the road and home, growing up with this “one of a kind” music legend makes this multi media presentation a guaranteed hit. “Come and see the show!”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
