Ladies, gentlemen, friends and fans 2016 finds The BusBoys continuing to move their legacy of high energy, musical entertainment via TV, films, recordings and live shows.
The band has been playing select shows primarily on the West Coast to fans who enjoy having their entertainment served with dynamic, high powered style.
After over thirty years of innovative, unique performance and songwriting, the band The LA Times called "revolutionary" has released The Best of The BusBoys.
This digital collection features songs from all of their recordings, with subjects ranging from nuclear destruction on "D Day," to gentrification on "There Goes The Neighborhood" to the first person testimony of Minimum Wage. Of course, the bands signature song "The Boys Are Back In Town" and other tracks from their on screen performance in the Paramount blockbuster "48 HRS." are included. If you like great rock, roll and soul, its a must for your collection.
Speaking of hot, The BusBoys single "City's On Fire" from the indie film "Freeway City" continues the bands scorching and creative social commentary. It was inspired by Brian's memories of the Watts Riots and is powerful, insightful new music. Hopefully, you're enjoying the preview featured on this page.
The track and The Best of The BusBoys is available on iTunes and other digital outlets, with more information, interviews and pictures going forward here and at www.facebook.com/TheBusBoys
"City's On Fire" and other songs are from the soundtrack for the documentary film "Freeway City", which tells the story of the City of Gardena where Brian and many of the original members of The BusBoys grew up and went to school.
The film is available for free viewing at www.freewaycity.org
"I'm glad to be doing a project that highlights the place the band got started and that gives me a chance to reconnect with so many of my old friends and stomping grounds" says Brian. The film is supported by the Normandie Casino, other local business and community leaders in Gardena, including former Assemblyman Paul Bannai and Councilman Ronald K. Ikejiri.
Plans are ongoing for the production of BusBoys TV. The show will feature live, in studio performances by guest artist and musicians, guest artists and musicians playing and singing unique arrangements of some of their songs as well as some from The BusBoys catalogue. Short, webisodes from the show are being previewed on www.facebook/thebusboys and on www.youtube.com/TheBusBoys.

The new documentary is being produced by British company Bueno Productions, under the direction of Anthony and Claire Bueno. Anthony is a gifted director and has successfully interviewed the Ghostbusters cast, crew and production team, including director Ivan Rietman, singer Ray Parker and Brian O'Neal. The band was recently filmed doing their Grammy nominated track for potential inclusion in the documentary. "We wanted to do something live and intimate, so we sat in my living room around the piano and recorded the song. It's The BusBoys making music in the spirit of the true soul of rock and roll," says Brian.
