Lead by guitar slinging former Congressman Paul Hodes, The Blue Buddha Band quartet features Bassist Jon Gabay, Dean Rubine on Keyboards and first call New England drummer, Ed Raczka.

Great songwriting!” About “Why, Why, Why”, Indieoclock said: “Great listening punk, energetic, fun and really cool, full of attitude and authentic. We love it and will add it to our Spotify playlist”.
