The Ante Room
Buddha Council – Buddha Council is the current culmination in musical enlightenment developed by Jon Quan (Vocals+Keys), Travis Mansell (Manager+), Rhett Walton (Drums), Aaron “Roach” Kuklica (Guitar), Thayer Davis (Guitar), and Jon “Tru” Truzinsky (Bass). Together, they represent the heartbeat of a thriving music scene in S.E. Virginia. Their former and current side-projects have contributed greatly to their local scene and to Buddha Council’s unique take on the ever evolving reggae genre. Their debut, self-titled album was recorded and mixed by “Jocko” Randall at More Sound Studios in early 2014. After the album dropped, the Council immediately started spreading the positivity on the Mid-Atlantic circuit and a tour down to the U.S. Virgin Islands. By the summer of 2015, it was apparent that a “fire” had started, and the band, eager to feed the flame, began to prepare for another album. Buddha Council returned to More Sound Studios in the fall of 2015 for their sophomore release, “Consider This.” It is the perfect snap shot of a band continually pushing boundaries while simultaneously rediscovering forgotten rhythms of reggae’s yesteryear. Ultimately, the Council has stayed true to their ultimate goal: seeking positive vibes for both themselves and their audience through cathartic rhythms and thought provoking lyrics.
DJ Seph Tekk will be on deck spinning the best of reggae, roots, dub and more all night!
