From the sticks of southern Illinois this band finds its beginnings and their journey of musicianship dates back to adolescence. The band mates have played together in various ensembles throughout their careers and have assembled together to form a fiery quartet worthy of your approval.
Buford T. combines its musical talent and diverse musical influence to entertain audiences of all ages. The live experience is the ultimate musical journey and each performance can be custom tailored to your event. The BTJ breadbasket of music is classic rock, blues, country, southern rock, and alternative. The Dumptrucks travel distance well, have professional lights and sound, take requests, and aim to please.
