Maybe you heard them at the HORDE Festival opening for Blues Traveler. Perhaps you''ve seen them share the stage with Guster and Widespread Panic at the Walnut Creek Ampitheater. Or maybe you stayed up late with the band as they jammed all night long with Phish at the Lemonwheel. Chances are if you''re into the kind of music that lingers in your head long after the show ends, you''ve experienced Conehead Buddha.
The band was formed in 1993, and has become one of the Northeast''s "must-see bands." Having sold out shows all along the East coast, Conehead Buddha''s fans are as diversified as the band itself. Originally intended as a Salsa dance band, Conehead''s sound has flourished as a showcase for Rock, Ska, Funk, Pop, Latin and Hip-Hop music. However, their inimitable talent lies in using each style as a vehicle for catchy, powerful songs. It is the band''s belief that these songs fused into an exhilarating live show create the perfect formula for attracting new fans while keeping the current fanbase of over 14,000 people satisified.
Conehead Buddha has played over 1000 shows spanning 19 different states. By recognizing the distinctive personality of each audience, they are able to mold every show into a unique musical experience. After the last encore, Buddha fans often return home with one of their latest albums. Since their first release in 1994, Conehead Buddha has independently sold over 28,000 recordings.
As of the year 2005, the band continues to provide the audience with a bigger sound and more versatility than ever.
