Welcome and thanks for your interest in having us play at your venue. Whether you are interested in Buddy playing solo, as a duo with Mark McGee (harmonica), or with his band the Motivators, be prepared for a good time!

"... Buddy Shute is a guitarist, keyboard player and  tunesmith who carries forward the true blues traditions he learned growing up in Memphis a block from Sun Studios in the golden era of music in the Bluff City, something that comes through loud and clear...."  

-Marty Gunther, Blues Blast Magazine.
