D.T. BUFFKIN – SATURDAY, 9/15/18 @ 1:00PM

“Operating in a style affectionately dubbed ‘Honky Tonk ’n’ Roll,’ D.T. Buffkin leads a band of exceptional professionals through the lexicon of classic American music. Whether playing doo woo-inspired carhop ditties or classic country barroom bawlers, his knack for song crafting is surpassed by few and his encyclopedic knowledge of beloved American standards shines through in his learned, captivating originals.” –Paste Magazine

“Somewhere between the AM country of yesteryear, the high, lonesome willow-whine of the ferociously stoned cosmic cowboy and the horny rambunctiousness of ’70s Brit-blues-rock resides D.T. Buffkin and his ‘honky tonk ‘n’ roll.’ Whether opening for esteemed soul balladeers (Lee Fields), icons of the roadhouse and modern Chitlin’ Circuit (Dale Watson and Junior Brown) or rubbing elbows with rock ‘n’ roll royalty (Sir Douglas Quintet and Texas Tornados member, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits collaborator Augie Meyers played on Buffkin’s last record and is often spotted in his crowd) his grasp of the greatest of American music rolls on by like a boxcar on butter – never too shaky or jarring – tied together by the ‘junk-crooned’ gravel balladry of his captivating voice. Think if Ryan Adams worshipped Merle Haggard or Father John Misty abandoned his post-hipster diary entries for folk barroom integrity…or something like that.” –Rolling Stone

“There’s so much to keep you listening to this album, no matter what mood or … neighborhood you happen to be in … (D.T. Buffkin) has taken his considerable talents and his influences and forged his own sound(s) from that raw material.” –San Antonio Current
