Buddha Boys Make their Break

Buddha Boys Make their Break

Who: Good Buddha
Where: SJ's on Beaumont
When: Sunday November 4, 2001

SYDNEY boys Good Buddha will make up one half of the funky bill when they perform at SJ's Hotel on Sunday night with the Resin Dogs. MC and bass player Andrew Lane said the group had taken a break since the debut album Skillathon was released last month.

'We haven't been playing a lot of gigs lately because we all have our own side projects,' Lane said. 'We're looking forward to this tour with the Resin Dogs.'

The realisation that the band is shaping up to be one of Australia's hottest new bands has not changed the fact that their parents and friends are proud of them.

'I went in with my Mum when she bought a copy of our album, so that was a bit of a laugh,' Lane said.

The group was billed to support the Fun Lovin' Criminals during their Australian tour, but missed out when the tour was cancelled due to the terrorist attacks.

Good Buddha formed in 1999 and has gone on to create an original fusion of hip hop, funk and rock.

Lane said Good Buddha started out as a group of friends who developed a band after realising they were all into the same styles of music.

He said the group is hoping to start working on funkier styles of music people can party to.

The group will no doubt use the skills of keyboard player Pete who was responsible for most of the production work on Skillathon.

Good Buddha will kick off at 8.30pm and tickets are available for $13.20 from PDMS, Sound World Kotara or at the door for $15.
