Description

Business card for the band, Buckwheat. The names of the band members appear at the top of the card, with "Buckwheat for live entertainment" printed in the center. The name Randy Stone and a phone number appear at the bottom. Known for their spontaneous blues-based jams and the pyrotechnics of their guitarist, Danny 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, Dwight Saunders played bass and Richard Radloff played drums. 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.
