The majority of this 7 piece band met on stage watching each other in perspective bands. Lab work is all well and good but Lewd Buddha is at its mouth-watering best in front of a live audience. "We love playing live because basically we are all hams. We all thrive on that instant gratification that comes with seeing people's faces and feeling their energy." Buddha's unique parts are what make it the musical sensation that it is.
Originally founded in early 2003, Lewd Buddha is:
Bassist/Vocalist - Frank Malabe
Guitarist - Robert Valderrama
Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist - Jonathan Bonett
Drummer/Percussionist - Andy St. Angelo
Vocalist - Erika Montaperto
Percussionist - Tony Olavarria
Saxophone - Derek Currier
Often they are joined by Grammy nominated Guitarist Joaquin Lievano, Rich Mancini on Saxophone and Drummer/Percussionist Eddie Torres.
Lewd Buddha has finished recording their SECOND - Long Awaited CD, LIFE IN INTERESTING TIMES, and has been playing around New York and New Jersey's clubs to enthusiastic response. A CD release party is expected in November 2005.
If Spicy Jams, Mouthwatering Songs, Flavorful Lyrics and Zesty Performances are what you've been craving, Lewd Buddha is good to your ear hole.
