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 of Buddz rather than his given Harper. People who dismiss him out of hand, though, are truly missing something special. Collie Buddz was born in New Orleans and raised in Bermuda, and his skills and passion toward reggae really shine through. Collie is playing Respectable Street on July 25, so reggae / dancehall / soca fans shouldn't hesitate to drop the $22 in advance. Hit the jump if you'd like to check out Mr. Buddz for yourself.
