Happy Belated Birthday, Budrock “the Illuminator” Prewitt! (March 28)

Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt
Willie Nelson and Family
The Illuminator

I feel so bad I missed this one!  Budrock “The Illuminator” Prewitt hit the big six oh last Sunday, and I didn’t wish him happy birthday.  All the best (belated) birthday wishes, Buddy!  

Buddy is the lighting director for Willie Nelson and Family,  and has worked with the band for over thirty years.    I took this picture of him in Denver, during the Democratic National Convention in 2008, when WN&F were performing at a private concert.

Budrock worked hard at Poodie’s Picnic on 6/28/09 in Austin, making sure things went smoothly.  I never saw him sit down once all day.  

He modelled the latest Willie Nelson bandanna, at Carl’s Corner last December.
