Hello and welcome to the official Oscar Butler Music web site. If you have been fortunate enough to catch Oscar performing around the Albuquerque, New Mexico area restaurants, festivals or private parties or have run across him in various venues from Los Angeles to Boston, then you have been the recipient of what can easily be described as a lyrical and melodious delicacy. Watching the ease at which Oscar’s hands work complex finger pickings conjunct with rhymic thumping all while vocally giving what equates to a sonic herbal massage lulls his listeners into thinking this is an easy feat. The truth being that Oscar has spent over forty years perfecting his craft. He has been called by the Weekly Alibi newspaper, “One of the best voices in Albuquerque.”
Bosque Brewing Company
May 20, 2013 – Monday was the first time performing a Bosque Brewing Company. I had just a bit of trouble figuring out the mixing board and PA system, but once I scaled that mountain everything was cool. Pat and Felicia stopped in and it was awesome having them along with an enthusiastic audience. It and the staff helped me relax and enjoy my first (hopefully not the last) evening there.
Torino’s @ Home on a Saturday night
May 18, 2013 – Friday and Saturday nights are my usual performance space if I am not booked at another venue or private party. Since I volunteer here the best way to know if I am going to be there is to keep and eye on my website’s schedule.
St. Martin’s Hospitality house Bar-B-Q
On May 3, 2013 I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer for the St. Martin’s Hospitality house as they put on their BBQ cookout for their clients. As I always find, the event was well organized making it a joy to be a part of their giving.
