Buddy Wakefield is Back in Bend

Slam champion Buddy Wakefield takes the stage at COCC.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 9, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Two time individual World Poetry Slam champion Buddy Wakefield will be giving a free performance on Thursday, February 10th starting at 7pm in the Hitchcock Auditorium at COCC. 

Last fall Wakefield, with his athletic frame and troubling, expressive eyes, ushered forth both tears and a standing ovation as part of the Revival tour that stopped over in downtown Bend. Wakefield is propulsive, full of crackling energy mixed with a shocking sweetness that left several audience members weeping.

Wakefield is the kind of performer that makes you simultaneously contemplate the harsher realities of life while laughing, wanting to buy him a beer afterwards just to say thanks for taking you on a wild ride. Buddy is jovial, his poetic gesticulations are graceful, almost elegant, and those crazy eyes of his mesmerize.
