About The Budos Band

The Budos Band describe their sound as "doom rock Afro-soul big band with a '70s touch." Their multivalent approach bridges musical universes from trippy psychedelia and Afro-funk to '70s hard rock and late-'60s soul. They are a 21st century jam band. While there is room for improvisation inside their often-hypnotic, labyrinthine compositions, their arrangements are sophisticated, tight, and centered on infectious grooves. Their recorded catalog runs from 2005 through 2010 -- Budos Band I, II, and III -- appropriately reflected the outgrowth of their early influences. With 2014's Burnt Offering, Budos shifted gears and wove in elements of early-'70s psychedelia and Krautrock, which added darker, more hallucinatory textural and dramatic dimensions to their sound. Over the next five years, their music evolved as they road-tested their material. They integrated raw, metal-tinged, high-energy psych rock with V in 2019.
