Buddy Whittington began playing guitar at an early age, being inspired by his sister's records of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and, in particular, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. At the age of 14 he was already a part of the Dallas/Fort Worth music scene and playing regularly in the clubs along Jacksboro Highway.
During the early 80's, he formed and sang with his own band "The Sidemen". In 1991 they opened for John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers. When Mayall’s guitarist Coco Montoya left the Bluesbreakers in 1993, Mayall remembered the hot guitarist from Texas and gave Buddy a call to take over the reins as lead guitarist. Buddy appeared on countless Mayall shows and recordings worldwide for the 15 years between 1993 and 2008, at which time the existing Bluesbreakers were reformed by Mayall.
Since striking out on his own, Buddy released his self-titled solo CD at the beginning of 2009, and his second CD, Six String Svengali in 2011. The Texas bluesman has already completed three European tours, playing to packed blues clubs night after night.
Backing up Buddy for this show will be The Atomic Fireballs, featuring saxophonist Carlos Crull.
“This will be the fourth time we have brought Buddy Whittington into the area accompanied by the Atomic Fireballs” explains Amy Whitesell of A Music Company Inc., promoter of the show. “Each show turns into a real party with Buddy because of his versatility. He’s a master guitarist and delves into not only the blues, but rock and roll and even a little country. He’s truly a crowd pleaser.”
General admission tickets are $18 in advance and $23 the day of show. A VIP ticket is available for $38 in advance and $43 day of show. The VIP ticket includes a reserved seat and choice of prime rib or catfish dinner. Tickets may be purchased on line at www.amusiccompanyinc.com or at the Crystola Roadhouse.
