Buffam attended Boston University and was from Wilton, Connecticut.
The Christo Buffam Tribute Show is part of Bushwick Open Studios. It’s a free, all-day show that starts at 3 p.m., and donations are encouraged. Money raised will go to Buffam’s family and the touring bands.
Check out a full list of the performers, as well as the event’s flyer below. And for those unfamiliar with Buffam’s music, check the links after the jump. We highly recommend his guitarwork with the Vandelles.
