A lifelong Texan, Buddy Whittington ‘entered the arena’ on December 28, 1956, in Fort Worth, and became enamored of the electric guitar like countless kids of his vintage shortly thereafter. Western Swing music played a part, as Mr. and Mrs. Whittington were big fans of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Probably the biggest influence in young Bud’s musical makeup was the record collection of his big sister, encompassing everything from British Invasion bands to R&B hits of the day, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Beatles, Stones, The Who and many more. Buddy has toured Europe and played locally around DFW when off the road. The current working band, having worked together for over 20 years, consists of Michael ‘Mouse’ Mayes (guitar, vocals) Wayne Six (bass, vocals) and Randy Chez (drums). Join the Levitt as we enjoy the music of this experienced band in Arlington, TX!
