What do you get when you put together a Congressman, two mad scientists, and a jazz drummer? The Blue Buddha Band! The band’s original sound fuses retro-rock, folk, roots, and superb original songwriting into a powerful blend. Lead by guitar-slinging former NH Congressman Paul Hodes, The Blue Buddha Band features bassist Jon Gabay, Dean Rubine on keyboards, first call New England drummer Ed Raczka, and guest vocalist Peggo Horstmann Hodes.
The Band’s new original song album, Turn This Ship Around, features a true story embodied in an upbeat and poignant single “The Night I Met John Lennon.” Red Rock Magazine dubbed the song an “Instant classic… beautiful storytelling.” The album has tens of thousands of hits on Spotify and is being streamed in 55 countries.
