Stealing Buddha

Stealing Buddha


We are a local Baton Rouge acoustic cover duo who performs mostly modern rock as well as other genres such as classic rock, and country. The likes of Tool to Willie Nelson and much music in between, we span the spectrum.


Adam and Ed met in February of 2007, en route to Chicago for a business trip. They were both employed with the same company but never really met prior to this venture. They spent one week in Chicago, did the work thing for part of the day, then hung out at night chatting about life and their shared of music. They toyed with the notion of starting a band upon their return to Louisiana.
About one week after returning home, Ed contacted Adam to get together to hangout and jam. We took some time and jam and work stuff out muscially. As the friendship was established and there was an apparent musical connection, the duo decided to start bringing in other musicians to complete Stealing Buddha.
Quite some time was put into working with many talented musicians, for whatever reason, things didn't work out. Some needed to quit to focus on school, some just didn't click...etc... They decided to go ahead and start putting their best foot forward and moving on as an acoustic project, while still looking for the missing members. There are currently names being tossed around and the full band is a very good possibility in the very near future.
Currently they write some in their spare time. Soon enough, their originals will be finished, polished, performed, and recorded.
Their influences show through in their set list and include the likes of...
Guns N Roses
Stone Temple Pilots
Alice In Chains
Johnny Cash
Ben Folds Five
7 Mary 3
Breaking Benjamin
Velvet Revolver
Jimi Hendrix
Willie Nelson
...too many to list
