Butch Phelps and The Buck Ups
May 17, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
Hailing from New York City, The Buck Ups are a hard rocking, countrified band of NYC music vets. Assembled and led by guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Butch Phelps, the band draws their sound from their shared influences of bar band country music, pulse-pounding New Orleans rhythms, and the classic crunch of rock ‘n roll guitars.
The band delivers dynamic and creative performances. They play hard, loud and loose, frequently echoing the sound of 1970’s Crazy Horse.
Phelps’s gritty and melodic songs are based in the traditions of roots music. They are inspired by his years living among the ramblers of Portland, Oregon, the anglers of Cape Cod, MA, the punksters of the East Village, and places north, south and in between.
