For immediate release:
BALTIMORE, MD — Buddy Ivory is proud to announce the potent, soul-shaking January 2009 release of the debut CD, Rough Cut, by The Buddy Ivory Band. Helmed by Buddy and Ivory, who are both six-string wizards and singers, the band expertly lays down grooves that are tastier than an all-you-can-eat buffet. Their songs, a kaleidoscope of rock, country, funk and rhythm and blues, say more with less – they ditch the pitch, and get right down to the sale. The band strongly believes that seriousness has no place in music, and this is evident in their songs. “Music should be fun. We feel that life is far too short to sweat the little things, and the passion of our music reflects the enjoyment and fulfillment we derive from it.”
Fun is the mortar that firmly holds the 10-song Rough Cut together, from the smooth groove of “Shadow Play” to the B-3 flavored funk of “Nothin’ But a Thang.” Accompanying Ivory and Buddy, who plays bass on eight of the songs and handles most of the lead fretboard duties, is drummer Steve Parezo, who also plays on eight of the songs, and will be joining the band live. Bob Shade contributes additional stick work on “I’m Really Sad,” “You Gotta Go,” and “Wait for Me.” Spencer Leckliter adds the bottom end on “Wait for Me” and “Alabama Fighting Men,” and Dan Burbine rounds out the lineup on keyboards.
For many years, Buddy and Ivory paid their rock and roll dues – with interest – at local venues in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. In the 80s, Buddy managed and played lead guitar for the Southern rock band, Redeye, and Ivory played lead guitar for a local group called Shatter, which won a battle of the bands contest.
With the pending release of Rough Cut, the band has landed a knockout punch in their battle to recruit fans nationwide. No one is immune to their highly contagious songs, which are skillfully penned and expressively played. Or, as the band would say, “Our music is a cross between traditional R&B, rock and roll, country, and down-home soul. It MUST have a beat, and get you off your seat!”
