Buddy Crime Gets Wild In Louisville, Kentucky Buddy Crime's Energy Permeates Headliner's Music Hall
“… The one-man band Buddy Crime kicked the night off with a unique touch of dance music. Now, those who weren’t there may think “dance music…opening for White Reaper?” but only those who witnessed this set could understand the greatness of Buddy Crime.
It was hard for me not to pay attention to Buddy Crime with his orange suit and constant communication with the crowd, especially when Buddy started off his set by jumping over the railing and running a lap through the crowd back to the stage. From standing on the rail, crowd surfing, playing his guitar right at the front row of people – you name it, odds are Buddy Crime did something at least once every song. I’m also not exactly sure how Buddy Crime didn’t get worn out whatsoever during his set.
Buddy’s music is synth infused energy. My music editor suggested that I have a listen to some of the “electronic dance” hits of the 80s, and steered me to Herbie Hancock’s “Rock It” or Harold Falermeyer’s “Axel F”, and I can definitely hear/feel those vibes in Buddy Crime’s music, but he’s definitely got his own modern twist. A throwback of sorts, but I’m pretty sure Herbie Hancock wasn’t dancing around like a madman on stage during performances…”
