Lineup :: Bands :: The Bullbuckers


Wilmington, DE

The Bullbuckers rock the party and your backyard. Blending early Ska, Reggae, Soul, Rock, New Orleans brass arrangements and hip-hop, the Bullbuckers ain't your momma's party but you should have seen how she got down.

"This six-piece group with a horn section is like the ultimate party band. Whether they are playing reggae or another style" -Tish Michel, The Coconut Times, Ocean City

"Top-notch musicianship is a hallmark of The Bullbuckers." -Roger Hillis, The Beach Comber and Delaware News Journal

"The Bullbuckers are the livest band in Delaware." -DJ Thorru 91.3 WVUD

"A fusion of soul-searing and foot-stomping music - ska like you've never heard it (unless you were living in the Islands in the 60s), soul and a tinge of hip-hop. It's a Wilmington sound that has roots - and fans - round the globe."  -The Examiner

"There's this moment that happens at every (Spark Magazine Annual Birthday Party), right as we're introducing the band - the crowd tenses up and waits to see if they're going to stay and listen ... I think the Bullbuckers got about five notes into their first song before I heard a guy behind me say, 'Hey, they're really good.' Indeed."  -Matt Sullivan, General Manager/Editor, Spark Magazine

The Bullbuckers have had the opportunity to play with many of their favorite artists and friends such as The Skatalites, English Beat, Toasters, Slackers, Pietasters, Wailers, Midnight, Trombone Shorty, Robert Randolph, Kirk Joseph's Backyard Groove, Soul Rebels, Bonerama, The Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Vodoo Glow Skulls, and many more.
