Description

Black and white photographs of Danny Richard performing on electric guitar with the band, Buckwheat. Known for their spontaneous blues-based jams and the pyrotechnics of Richard, Buckwheat was a three-piece high energy rock band that performed in the Tampa Bay area from the late 1960s through the mid-1970s. In addition to Richard on guitar and vocals, Richard Radloff played drums and Dwight Saunders played bass. The band performed at Battle of the Bands and teen venues throughout the region, including the "Star Spectacular concert series" at Clearwater Auditorium, Indian Rocks Beach, Rowlett Park, and the old "Quest Inn" Coffee House in Downtown Clearwater.
