While living in Washington D.C. Buddy had the opportunity to work with "The Young Senators" then D.C's top group. Buddy has been an opening act for many top performers such as Natalie Cole, Teddy Pendergrass, The Dramatics, Delphonics, Spyro Gyra, and was the first act to tour with "Blue Magic" when their record "Sideshow" was #1 in the country.  Buddy recently followed Mariah Carey into the "New Palace Cabaret " in Halifax, Nova Scotia, performing six nights to a sold out house. The "New Palace Cabaret" is Canada's 2nd largest nightclub.

In recent years Buddy has devoted his talent to working the local New England circuit doing mostly functions, lounges, clubs, and private parties.  In 2001 and 2002 Dajour and Buddy have done many political performances with Mayors of Providence, Boston, and New Bedford, most recently as headliner at the prestigious "Zeiterion Theatre" in New Bedford for the Mayor's Inaugaural Celebration.
