East coast musician Buck 65 plays Nelson's Spiritbar on Saturday

From East Coast to West Coast Buck 65 comes to Nelson

Buck 65 is known as one of Canada's most diverse and experimental artists and is now coming to Nelson to play Spiritbar.

Buck 65 is one of Canada’s most diverse musicians, gaining a reputation for his experimental sound which combines his unique MC turntable styles.

His voice is also heard nationwide as a CBC radio host.

While Buck 65’s older music incorporated his own brand of hip hop, his more recent music, including compilations with fellow East Coast musician Jenn Grant, draws in blues, country, folk, and rock influences.

He’s also worked with Canadian artists like Emily Wells, Skratch Bastid and Moka Only.

In 2006 he gained additional recognition after appearing on the Juno Music Awards with Pamela Anderson.

Buck 65 will take the stage at Spiritbar on Saturday, June 9. Ticket information is available at the Hume Hotel.
