'BUCK-THRIFTY HAVE CURATED THEIR OWN HOUSE SHOWS, PURSUED RADIO APPEARANCES, BOOKED WEST COAST TOURS, PLAYED MULTIPLE FESTIVALS, BUILT PREMIUM ONLINE CONTENT AND RECORDED AN ALBUM. THIS IS ALREADY MILES AHEAD OF MOST BANDS IN OUR AREA THAT HAVE BEEN TRYING FOR YEARS.'

'I think they’ve written 50+ new songs in the time I’ve known them and they have enough breadth of skill and sound to handle a variety of audiences.  I foresee them continuing on this path, as the size and number of their gigs keeps snowballing.

The breadth of songs, their musical sensibilities and their abilities to self-promote are why booking them for the SF Free Folk Festival was a Success'

Jeremy Friedenthal
Co-Director
San Francisco Free Folk Festival

Buck Thrifty enraptures crowds at festivals, gets people drinking at bars, entertains guests at weddings and wineries, and we happily invite and bring other phenomenal bands to share our stages so that we can put on the best show possible.

bars, restaurants & small venues

 

Buck Thrifty takes pride in building relationships with small venues and their audiences, we get people out of their seats and dancing in bars with or without a dance floor, and in addition to putting on lively shows we make sure the patrons are drinking and tipping the bar.


the soulful side

Although regarded mostly as a dance band, Buck Thrifty also finds inspiration in more mellow and moving musics, and their Jazz influence and sultry vocal harmonies have time to shine in quieter settings

Buck-Thrifty performs "Photographic Lens" during their 8/28 Onstage with Jim & Tom appearance. Recorded at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA.
