Righteous Buddha is the most prominent organ driven quartet based in Baton Rouge. Formed in 1999, they began performing on a regular basis at Chelsea's Cafe near the north gates of LSU. Buddha has since released two full length efforts: Black, Blue, and Bamboo in 2000, and Get Right in 2003. They have shared the stage with many nationally established acts such as G. Love & The Special Sauce, Robert Cray, The Derek Trucks Band, Leftover Salmon, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise, The Kudzu Kings, Soulive, D.J. Logic, Spoonfed Tribe, George Porter Jr., John Cleary, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Johnny Sketch and The Dirty Notes, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Red Stick Ramblers, Hairy Apes BMX (Mike Dillon), Donald Evans, Liquidrone, Rebirth Brass Band, and Good Enough For Good Times. Righteous Buddha even had the pleasure of filling in at Papa Grows Funk's weekly gig at the Maple Leaf when they weren't available. After establishing themselves in Louisiana, they extensively toured the Southeast and Southwest. Righteous Buddha has maintained a strong following throughout the south. In recent years, Buddha has perfected their sound with the addition of two new members.
