THE YOUNG BUCS continue to take the stage and entertain people who have come to expect their bluegrass or oldies favorites!
Whether it’s Gene Chandler’s “Duke of Earl” or “Little Darlin”, made famous by The Diamonds, THE YOUNG BUCS Doo-Wop division take you back to the ‘50’s, and the days before IPods and cell phones; back to a time when you wore a “DA” or maybe “Pedal Pushers”. Your car had fender skirts and lake pipes and “parking” did not involve getting your car to do what you wanted it to. But having been a teen during that era is not a prerequisite to enjoying this music. The style and themes of the music from the doo-wop era are classic and timeless. Audiences of all ages continue to be entertained as The Young Bucs bring it to life.
At this point you could be wondering if The Young Bucs have a serious split personality. From the standpoint of musical styles, do Doo-Wop and Bluegrass have similarities that make them logical bedfellows? The answer is yes….. and yes. Style wise, The Bucs do suffer from a split personality and the two styles do share many commonalities. Both are unique and treasured American art forms and a rich part of our heritage. Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Jerry Garcia and others grew up revering the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe, and their styles were influenced by his. While The Bucs do have members who are exclusive to either side of the slit personality, collectively they have a broad background experience that ranges from folk and blues to musical theater and rock and roll. Vocal harmony is the core of both Young Buc styles and is the passion that drives song selection and arrangements.
