Congratulations, Budrock “Buddy” Prewitt, beginning a new year (his 38th), with Willie Nelson & Family. This concert with WN&F and Linda Ronstadt was his first show first show, at the SuperDome in New Orleans. This is the poster from that show.
Congratulations, Buddy, here’s to many more years to come.
“That was awhile back and I’m still here. Lucky, I guess. Greatful, for sure.” — Buddy
Think about it, Buddy has seen more Willie Nelson & Family shows than anyone ever anywhere! His job doesn’t just involve getting in early and getting the lights set up, he works throughout the show and can’t slip away for a nap or snack. That’s a lot of Willie Nelson & Family music!
[ed note: I wanted to write that Buddy can’t ‘slip away to get stoned or get laid’, but it didn’t seem appropriate to write here, so I went with the nap and the snack thing. — Linda]
“On the road again”. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt (SHOWCO lighting designer/director) catches a smoke during David Bowie’s 1976 Isolar “Station to Station” tour. Buddy resigned from SHOWCO in 1980 to work exclusively for Willie Nelson as his lighting director. Please like our FB page SHOWCO the Book. Thank you!”
