CD entitled "I Like It A Lot", Released, February 2010
Tommy Dudley, aka the Blues Buddha, is a rough and tumble blues vocalist who, in his own words, has “picked up stylistic influences from people he admires and mixes them into his own musical gumbo.“
Eclectic influences include: R&B artists Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding, the straight-ahead blues, rock and soul of Eric Burdon and Tom Jones. The Blues Buddha is a popular figure in the NY Metro area club scene and performs at multiple venues several nights per week.
“The Buddha is Back! To know The Buddha is to love his unique, infectious havin’-a-good-time style. If you’ve never seen these guys, you’re missing out on one of the most fun and exciting Blues acts in the Tri-State area.” - Jeanie and Rich Credidio of 12 Grapes Restaurant in Peekskill, NY
“Buddha got a Voice So big You swear he wouldn’t need a Mic!” - Dave Fields, Big City Rythm and Blues Magazine
“It’s all about an awaking of the Spirit. I hope the Blues Buddha brings that message to the Blues. So let me lift your Spirit and Rock your Rooster. Come on and do the Buddha Boogie with me.”
Musicians Tommy has worked with include:

Since then I have been a devoted student of the Blues listening to, learning from, and playing with some of the best players in New York and around the country. I bring my R&B, Soul and Rock gumbo to the Blues and make it my own.
In January of 2009, I got together with Scott Staton of Stoopid Daddy Records and we began writing seven original tunes for this new project. We then collaborated with Denny Leroux of Storm of the Century Music for the final three songs. Over this past year, we recorded with Larry Alexander at his studio, with a group of super talented musicians and produced a new CD called, "I Like It A Lot". Just completed, it's time to share our original sounds with everyone. I'm very proud of it and I hope you enjoy it too.
Although I am not a Buddhist, I believe that the Buddha's concept is an important part of my music. It's all about an awaking of the Spirit. The Blues Buddha brings that message to the Blues. So let me lift your Spirit and Rock your Rooster. Join my journey and share my Blues.
Come on and do the Buddha Boogie with me
