About Trombonist Buff Dillard

Born into a musical bloodline, at the age of six, Buff sparked an interest for singing, drums and playing brass instruments. By the age of twelve, he developed more of a passion to play the trombone and decided to focus on mastering the slide. As a student of Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, his gift allowed him to attend the Philadelphia All-City Jazz Academy, perform with the Philadelphia All-City Jazz Band, jazz sensation Pieces of a Dream, and the legendary Count Basie Band. He was also able to attend jazz workshops instructed by the celebrated jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

​Years later, Buff worked with the Prince of Gospel, Pastor John P. Kee and was featured as a soloist on the Strength and New Divine Destiny projects. This extraordinary artist has worked with Calvin Richardson, and performed with Willie Clayton, Dave Hollister, KimWaters and Miles Jaye. He's headlined for numerous artists including Alex Bugnon, Ben Tankard, Shirley Caesar, Helen Baylor, The Williams Brothers, Charles Wollfork Angela Christie, the SOS Band, Jasmine Sullivan, Kevon Edmonds of the group After 7, Faith Evans, Walter Beasley, Boney James and Glenn Lewis. Buff has released a total of 8 independent projects including his latest album titled "Mr. Bonejazz" and three single from this album are in heavy rotation globally. Buff is endorsed by Conn/Sellmer/King Instruments and continues his career as a trombonist, performer, independent international recording artist and CEO of Buff Dillard Music LLC.
