Since 1996, The Buddhahood has been driving their World-Ternative Groove train in and out of Rochester, NY, whipping crowds of beloved fans into frenzy, blurring the line between stage and dance floor and transcending audiences with their explosive and soulful shows. Carrying on the messages of founding member Tony Cavagnaro, there is an incarnation on the scene whose musical energy comes from power and spirit, and with songs about perspective, picking oneself up and having crazy amounts of fun.
Making up this highly creative and entertaining ensemble are nine members, with a wide spectrum of character and musical background. Known for their multi-instrumental, powerhouse sets, The Buddhahood represents with a variety of vocal styles, full percussion, horns, bass, guitar and keys in shades of Afropop, Roots, Reggae, Jazz, Rock, Blues and Samba in unstoppable vibration and elemental harmony, as each song forces you to stay on the dance floor.
