Paul Buggy Edwards
Paul "Buggy" Edwards was born and raised in S.E. Washington DC. He started playing drums at the age of 2 years which soon turned into him playing drums and singing in his mothers gospel group. Paul's love for Go-Go music was established when he was 6 years old at Anacostia Park with his older brother where he saw the late Rick "Sugar Foot" Wellman playing drums with the band E.U. (Experience Unlimited). It was in that moment in which he decided that Go-Go was the music that he wanted to play.
Paul's parents enrolled him in school for music at the age of 9, which is where it was truly discovered that his gift and skills were well beyond his years. From there he really began to play more in church and on the local music scene; developing into a serious drummer and industry professional.
At the age of 19 Paul was called by the late Chuck Brown to record drums on one of his many hit songs called: "Can't No Body Do Me Like Jesus."
Paul then joined forces with the Backyard Band and has been innovating with them for the last 27 years. Playing over 250 shows a year, Paul has truly earned his place as a legend in the DC Go-go community.
Paul stated that his top 6 musical influences are Jeff Lo Davis, Yogi Horton, Jeff Cobb, James Cunningham Sr., Blues Webb and Jimmy Russell. He attributes a lot of what he knows to their positive guidance which has afforded him the opportunity to share the stage with Ginuine, Dru Hill, Raheem DeVaughn, Emily King, Citizen Cope, Richard Smallwood, Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Dorinda Clark, Paul Morton, Dave Holister and Donnie McKlurkin to name a few.

Jamale has had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Hudson, Tank, Melissa Ethridege, Wess Morgan, and Mali Music. Jamale gives all thanks to his Lord and Savior, who is the head of his life as he continues to not only play drums, but worship and study the word of God in his church home every Sunday, Great Redeemer Church, under the teaching of his Pastor, Dr. Zavette D. Smallwood. Since a very young age, Jamale has been mindful that his talent is truly a gift from God that he has taken full advantage of and is not ashamed to give all thanks to his Lord and Savior! Jamale aspires to one day open up a drumming school to teach not just drums, but music business, which is his true passion!
