Come early for Liquid Laughs comedy show 8-9:30PM and stay for live music from 10PM-2AM.
Buster Blue is a 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”.
Buster Blue was 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.
The band is continuing their “breakout” touring with performances at the Fall Strawberry Music Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, WA, Millpond Music Festival among several events and live performances.

“Bloody Your Teeth”
The band is comprised of five band members, most of whom alternate through an arsenal of instruments that includes banjo, accordion, trumpet, trombone, chain-links and more, along with the traditional guitar/bass/drums combo.
In January 2010, Buster Blue recorded their first full-length album, “When the Silver’s Gone”. They chose to not enter a studio to record, but wanted a special setting for their first album. Thus, in the middle of winter, the band hunkered down in a historic opera house in Virginia City, Nevada that once hosted performers such as Harry Houdini to record. The opera house seemed the ideal setting to capture the emotional depth of that particular set of songs. As well, they were able to acquire (on loan) chains from the Johnny Cash estate that were used on a couple of his recordings to use in their recordings…The album was produced by Zak Girdis and Kevin Bosley. Kevin was the assistant engineer on the Avett Brothers recent release.
Buster Blue brings more than music to their performance. If people are willing to pay for a show, they’re sure as hell going to put one on that folks will be glad they didn’t miss.
Buster Blue has performed with artists including: Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s, Devil Makes Three, Jason Webley, Langhorne Slim, O’Death T-Model Ford, The Dexter Romweber Duo, Norfolk & Western, Magnolia Electric Co,, Justin Gordon, Jaguar Love, David Vandervelde, Rocky Votolato, El Olio Wolof, Jason Anderson, The Deadly Syndrome, Bob Log III, Golden Boots, Rademacher, and The Pharmacy.
