The Kind Buds, who play the Iron Horse this Saturday at 10PM, represent everything that is beautiful about the music of The Grateful Dead and the scene that grew up around the band.

Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds take the stage at The Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, Ma for a special Rex Musical Caravan Event this Saturday, Sept 10, 2011 for a 10 PM show.  Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.  The performance will also feature A.minor who will be projecting live video art behind the musicians.

The Kind Buds entertain their audiences with inspiring covers & incendiary originals, trading fiery-sweet licks on a roller coaster of tension & release.

No effects of any kind are used in live performances.

Coming off a busy East Coast Festival Tour including The Gathering of the Vibes, StrangeCreek, Bears Picnic, Bella Terra Fest, Sterling Stage and the Grateful Dead Fest at Warwick Wineries,  The Kind Buds are eager to share with thier fans new Kind Bud originals to be showcased at the Iron Horse Music Hall.
