It's easy to look at Collie Buddz (or even just hear his name) and dismiss him as a joke or at least a novelty. He's a white guy singing reggae, and he's using the last name Buddz rather than his given Harper. People who dismiss him out of hand, though, are truly missing something special. Collie was born in New Orleans and raised in Bermuda, and his skills and passion for reggae really shine through. He will play Respectable Street July 25, so reggae/dancehall/soca fans shouldn't hesitate to drop the $22 in advance.
