8/15 - Bear Funk...
Special thanks to all those who came out to enjoy
BFJ at the Little Bear in Evergreen, Colo. What a
great venue -- we look forward to returning very soon!
Also thanks to the legendary
who was kind enough to sit in with the band at
Herb's Hideout in Denver. If you were lucky enough
to catch Joe in action, you saw him keep playing
even when his keyboard fell on the floor!
7/18 -- Average
July 18 at Boulder's legendary Fox Theater
was a terrific show. BFJ opened for
*The Average White Band.*
These soul funk legends are
behind the hit instrumental "Pick Up The
Pieces." Check out their web site.
Thanks to the Fox staff and
AWB for a
great night of FUNK.
We've got some new RealPlayer

6/3 - Flippin' Out...
Herman's Hideaway had another big night with
BFJ and Mind Go Flip, four musicians from
Greeley. Witnesses were amazed by a Buckylove
funk sermon, and Doug from MGF playing the
trombone with his feet. A big thank you to all our
friends and family that came to support us.
We love you!
Now we get to back up to
Boulder, where the word
is still bouncing around about our Boulder Creek
5/27 - Who's afraid of
What a weekend. Friday night we blew down a
real big tent at the Celebrate Colorado Artists
Festival, in the downtown Denver Pavilions.
When we got there, they had no power in the tent.
They didn't have any left when we got through, either.
BFJ was also seen and heard on
Denver's ABC TV
Station, Channel 7, KMGH.
Special thanks to our friends at 7News,
who are without a doubt the best
(and funkiest) news team in Denver.

(You need RealPlayer to see this.)
Saturday night just kept the
BFJ winning streak
going. A big 'ole crowd of people were dancing
and singing and laughing at Buckylove as we
headlined the second night of the Boulder
Creek Festival, at the Bandshell Park in downtown Boulder.
It was a perfect night and we loved
it. Thanks to Boulder Creek Events for making it
5/4 - Fox Hunting...
The Fox Theater loved the BFJ sound,
and we loved the sound at the Fox.
We warmed up the hall for the good guys
from California, Carlos Washington and the
Giant People. The crowd and the musicians
were definitely into the grooves that were
going around. Those that stuck around
were even treated to Buckylove sitting in
with Carlos, which was like watching
the trumpet version of Aretha Franklin and
Mariah Carey. I'll let you figure out who was
"The Giant People sound
jazz, funk, hip-hop and world music formats.
The instrumentation is electric bass, guitar, drums, keyboards,
vibraphone, and trumpet with effects."
Members of this 4-piece have
Arturo Sandoval and Carl Denson. Read about 'em
This was one hell of a jazzy,
Keep your eyes peeled for more BuckyLove
at Boulder's legendary music theaters.
4/8 - Spider Girls...
The FUNdry didn't let us down. Boulder
love us, and we love Boulder. Hugs and kisses
all around, huh? We got some kisses from
a group of mysterious ladies that joined us
on stage (in spiderwoman outfits?), and a
very generous tip from a young man that
just knew that BuckyLove could sing
"Stormy Monday" like nobody in town.
Above all else, there was some serious
funk stepping in the house. We like it that
way, and we plan to repeat the scene....
3/18 - Space Circus at
Another big show at Herman's Hideaway was
a packed house and a party that made St.
Patrick proud. Like Bucky said, "When you think
of old school cats - think of us."
Three lucky people walked away
CDs after they acted on their innermost urges
to buy one of our smooth tee-shirts. Will you
be the next lucky stiff? We hope so...
And keep your eyes peeled for
shows as the weather gets warmer...
Thanks for coming out and
smiles on our faces... we love you!
3/8/01 - It's Easy
Being Green... Do you notice a trend? Everybody wants BFJ
and our Flacousins to come blow the roof off. We're only too happy to oblige. By
the way, Vinson is also Irish - but that's obvious, right?
SAT. MARCH 17 -
ST. PATRICK'S DAY WITH
BUCKNER FUNKEN IRISH JAZZ
+ YO! FLACLOVER
3/5/01 - The
The Soiled Dove got a taste of the dirty bird, and thanks to all of you
for bringing the party. If it
looks like we're having fun, it's because we are. Thanks again to all of our
friends, and to our
bruthas in Yo! Flaco, who put on a great show as well.
We did debut a new original at
the Soiled Dove, and if the crowd reaction was any indication, its
just as Smooth as BuckyLove intended... Great shows in Boulder
coming up! Shaw looks good to me... If you haven't been one of the lucky recipients
of a free demo, please check out the Listen
page for some digital samples. Trade 'em on any illegal music-swapping software you can
02/25/01 - The Free Skier Magazine Bash was one hell of a good time at the Foundry. We rocked the
house, and everybody loved the funk and the free stuff flying into the crowd, including
pairs of skis, jackets, backpacks, videos and two bikes. They didn't throw the bikes,
though. Thanks again to the magazine and to the Foundry for making it all happen.
2/18 - Reunion...Saturday
night's show at Herman's Hideaway was everything we expected and more. Thanks to everyone
who came out and partied - and packed the house. Ethan Raczka from Yo Flaco! made
a special guest appearance during our set,
and then our two horn sections combined for a couple superjams. Our only 2
disappointments were: (1) Not all of our fans made it in
to see us -- we understand that a number of our fans got stuck outside waiting to get in
while we were on stage, because the club was filled to capacity, and (2) A lot of people
who wanted one of our free CD demos left empty-handed.
We ran out of discs!
As a result, we've got 2
remedies: (1) We have soundboard audio from the show
and we're going to make it available in MP3 format on the site very soon, and
(2) WE'RE DOING IT ALL AGAIN!... SATURDAY MARCH 3, 2001, THE SOILED DOVE
BFJ + Yo! Flaco, the funkensequel
02/11/01 - Herb's
Hangover.. Well, if you didn't stop by and see us this weekend, you missed a
guest appearance by a bagpiper, and an 80-year-old professional cruise
ship dancer who has been in movies. Where does B-6 make these friends?
02/04/01 - We
slammed both levels of the Foundry on Feb. 2 and 3 -- its always fun to see the looks on
peoples' faces when they walk in and see us. Boulder is becoming Buckytown.
We love you all...
01/31/01 - What's
up y'all. We're happy to hear from everyone, and we hear the clamoring
for the original BFJ CD that's in the works. You'll be the first to know any news
project by making sure you're on our mailing
Right now, BFJ is arranging
and rehearsing the second half of the CD, while plans are made to
record the first half. The CD will include some of the original music you've been
hearing at our shows, including "In Walked Bucky," "Don't Dat Purdy,"
and "Big-Legged Woman."
01/01/01 - Happy
New Year. Time to get funky in the '01. Really good quality fresh MP3's
now available in the Listening Room.
A bunch of new shows added, and a killer night
at Herman's Hideaway with Yo Flaco.
11/21 - Happy
T-giving to everybody. You might want to gather everyone around the warm,
crackling glow of the computer monitor to listen to the new RealAudio
in the Audio
Room. A couple little gems from our
blockbuster production at Herman's Hideaway
a few weeks ago. Ask us how you can get a
free demo CD at any of our live shows.
you to one and all for tearing the roof off of Herman's Hideaway.
It is now officially an outdoor venue. There were cries of "Buckylove for
President" heard out in the crowd, but we're not sure if he would get the
electoral votes. Probably the popular vote though. We've got it all on tape, so watch out
for some live audio (or video) coming soon to buckylove.com. Special thanks to the crew at
Herman's for producing a great show.
