Multi Award winning Singer / Performer
Originally from Louisville, Kentucky and living in Ireland now for the past 8 years.

Buck is a multi-award winning singer who is living and performing in Ireland now for almost 7 years. In that time he has won “Best Soul Performer” on three consecutive occasions at the Irish entertainment Awards, adding to his already glowing list of achievements in the USA, including the prestigious “Best of Boston” award he won in the early 90’s.

In the past, Buck has toured / performed or recorded with many of the world’s best known artists, including Dan Akyroyd & The Blues Brothers (Booker T & The MG’s), Patti Labelle, Donna Summer, James Taylor, Johnny Taylor (RIP), Alex Taylor (RIP), Aerosmith, New Kids on The Block, Dr. John, Jimmy Buffet, J Geils Band (Peter Wolfe), Joan Jett and a host of others throughout the USA in his long and distinguished career there. He has also performed regularly at Caesars Palace Las Vegas as well as many of the leading auditoriums and Concert Halls throughout the USA.

In the 80’s he was a member of the acclaimed “East Coast Funk Busters” Band that was headed up by the great Alex Taylor (RIP), the older brother to James Taylor, and the band toured extensively throughout the States.

In Ireland, Buck has been an instant success. His likeness to the legendary Soul performer, James Brown, coupled with his unparalleled vocal styles and ability, have marked Buck out from the ordinary and Irish people have taken him to their hearts.
Whilst here, Buck has performed on the same bill as Dr Hook, The Commitments, The Camembert Quartet, Thin Lizzy, Jools Holland, Imelda Maye, The Rubber Bandits (Oxygen Festival) and Tommy Fleming, to mention but a few.

He has performed at hundreds of Weddings, Festivals, Bars and corporate events throughout Ireland and even in The UK, France, Austria and the Czech Republic with Jameson (Cult Film Festival) – always going down brilliantly and always leaving the crowd wanting more. Buck is a first cousin of the late great Memphis Soul legend, Johnny Taylor, who had hits with “Who’s making Love to your old Lady” & “Disco Lady”, among others in the US Charts. He is, without doubt, the most unique singer you will hear perform at Weddings in Ireland.
He is probably the best James Brown look alike, performer, in the World!
He is the best Motown tribute in Ireland!
You won’t believe your ears!
