With one Buddy show left to go, I’ve started looking back on all the memories from this year. It’s a fascinating thing to be a part of one year let alone 12 years. I was lucky enough to talk to a few guests this year, some of them up to the high teens in the number of years they’ve been coming to see Buddy. That’s a pretty serious feat considering that the club has been open 30 years this year. I found myself asking what keeps them coming back. I stopped myself because I realized that their reasons are the same as my own, just as I’m sure anyone reading this shares them as well. Whatever the reason one thing that can be agreed upon is that despite harsh weather, we can’t wait for next January.
