Rogers & Buffington, Salt Lake's premier vocal folk duo, plays stripped-down acoustic music powered by strong vocal harmonies, guitar, banjo, and harmonica. Perfect for parties, private events, festivals, and cocktail hours, Rogers & Buffington play a large selection of beloved covers including pop, rock, folk, and bluegrass, along with originals ranging from rollicking blues rock to good-time acoustic pop, from upbeat folk-rock to back-woods ballads. Rogers & Buffington are inspired by the likes of the Avett Brothers, Gillian Welch, the Grateful Dead, Josh Ritter, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, and Neil Young.
I did a review on Trust Pilot, but I'll leave another here. Rogers and Buffington was FANTASTIC! Basically like having bluegrass family at your event! They were professional, showed up on time, were absolutely delightful as people and our guests loved them too! We will most certainly be hiring these guys again. The music was fantastic and perfect for our event. We love Rogers & Buffington!!
We love, love, loved these guys. So accommodating and courteous - not to mention extremely talented. They checked in frequently before (and during!) the event and arrived on time with great energy. We can't wait to book them again.
What to Expect
You can expect Rogers & Buffington to deliver a professional performance from start to finish. We arrive on time or early, set up, sound check, and complete all preparations prior to start of performance. In fact, we have never started a performance late. We know when to chat with the audience and when to just stick to the music and stay out of the way. We have a broad repertoire, so we can increase the energy or chill out as needed. You will also find us extremely cooperative and easy to work with--no divas here! Want us to turn down? Turn up? Just tell us and we'll adjust. We pride ourselves on being professional, communicative, cooperative, and fun for audiences.
Rogers & Buffington, Salt Lake's premier vocal folk duo, thrives on close harmonies and the stripped-down acoustic blend of guitar, banjo, and harmonica.
