Glenn Buschine - Lead guitar / vocals

 

Glenn Buschine started playing guitar at the age of nine and through the years of performing on stage, he has honed his own creative and solid style. While playing in a Blues band during the seventh grade he started playing the Bass guitar. At the age of 14 he auditioned with a band in the Bay Area, called Magnuss, and was hired. Glenn quickly became proficient on how to play anything on bass. In 1976 at the age of 17, he resigned from Magnuss and moved to the Reno area. He performed with various local bands over a few years looking for the right combination. While playing in a band from Tucson Arizona called Maybe Naked, their lead guitar player was fired after the first day of a two-day concert. With another performance on the following evening at the same venue, the band leader asked Glenn to fill in and play lead guitar. Without any hesitation Glenn agreed and became their lead guitar player, coming full circle back to lead guitar after about twenty-five years! A founding member of Lady & the Tramps, the band emerged onto the scene in 2009 and quickly accrued a substantial following.
