Show Date: May 23, 2015

The Budos Band came ready to rock the mid-afternoon crowd on the main stage. One member of the band played the biggest saxophone I’ve ever seen. A quick Internet search tells me it’s a sax called a “contrabass saxophone”; pretty good low-end sound coming from that thing. Their sound has grown a little more rock […]
