Good, fun, music--plain and simple! I play acoustic rock, folk, country, and pop for parties, cocktail hours, and private events of all kinds, and I keep it simple by stripping it down to acoustic guitar, harmonica, and clear vocals. I love playing everything from family-friendly events to bars, and from backyard parties to private / corporate events. I am happy to take center stage or simply be background music. My goal is to provide the perfect soundtrack for your event, and I am happy to learn requests when possible.
*I also offer a duo and trio option for a bigger sound (i.e, weddings, etc.)
Clint is an excellent young man, kind, professional and very personal. Dressed well for the occasion. Interacted with our guests and they just loved him. Sang very well and his assortment of songs were a big hit. Arrived in plenty of time to set up prior to our guests arriving. Clint played for 4 straight hours with minimal breaks. At the end of the evening guests were requesting he play and sing a little longer. Clint graciously accommodated. This was a 60th birthday party for my wife approximately 60 guests. I had requested a few songs she liked and Clint took the time to learn the songs before the event, very nice touch.
Will absolutely hire Clint again. Great young man, sings very well. Would recommend Clint for sure.
Response from Clint Buffington:
Thanks, Fred! It really was a joy and a privilege to play for you all and very fun night to boot :-) Your guests were fantastic!
Clint was FANTASTIC. We hired him for our neighborhood block party. He played a nice selection of music that everyone could enjoy. We definitely recommend him if your looking for a professional performer that will keep the party going.
Response from Clint Buffington:
Thanks Ryan! I had a great time playing for y'all and appreciated being included in your celebration :-)
You can't ask for a nicer (or more versatile) performer. Due to weather (and the event being outside), the event didn't go as originally planned. Clint was great about the weather situation and was more than happy to be flexible. He put on a great acoustic show, was great with the guests, and was great to work with. Word needs to get out about this guy. He's a great talent!
I hired Clint for the Celebration of Life for my brother who recently passed. My brother wanted a party and that’s what he got. Clint played a variety of music and kept the party upbeat and fun. Many people commented on how good Clint was. I’d give him 10 stars if I could
Very nice musician with an awesome sound and played nearly continuously with only small breaks. We will be booking him several times for 2020!
Response from Clint Buffington:
Thanks Victor! I look forward to coming back and playing for y'all again!
Clint is not only an amazing vocalist and guitarist, but he is professional and personable. He preformed for me several times over the course of 8 months, and each time was a treat. I would recommend him for any occasion.
The first time I heard Clint was at a Highwest Brunch at Blue Sky. Amazing. He has since played a few events I have held in Park City, at OP Rockwell and The Rockwell Listening Room. Perfect to headline and get people dancing to classy country/bluegrass twist to popular songs. Very talented!
Incredible interaction with everyone.
Wonderful music and great performance!
Thank you, Clint, for a memorable experience that we all can't stop talking about it!
Worth every penny! 🎶💲❤️
Great experience! Thanks, Clint!

What to Expect
Musically, my goal is to provide what you need, when you need it. To start with, I show up early, set up, and sound check with plenty of time to catch and fix any issues that may arise with gear; I approach every show with a professional attitude, and I dress and behave accordingly. I always make sure to communicate clearly and often with my clients to make sure the event is running smoothly, and I pride myself on being flexible and responsive to my hosts' needs.
Ultimately, my goal is to set the perfect vibe and provide the perfect soundtrack for your event!
I was born and bred in the hills of southern Illinois where I grew up passing the guitar around the campfire with friends and howling at the moon. I've played music all over the country, and I am now based in central Indiana. I love playing and singing acoustic music and try to share that joy at every show!
Additional Booking Notes
My needs are minimal--mainly, I need access to power and I need to be sheltered from the elements (shade in summer, heat in winter, and protection from rain, snow, etc.).
If you want me to provide additional musicians, we'll simply need more space.
