In his early teens he was playing with a dance band at a dance hall in North Battleford, Sask. When the family moved to Victoria, BC in 1946 he took up modern piano lessons. That was the start of his music/jazz career at the keyboard. In the 50's, besides playing at all the best venues in Victoria, he toured the North Western USA with the "Continentals". During this time he also worked at one of Victoria's Radio Stations. He also did a lot of work with bands in Edmonton. Back in Victoria, and in his latter years, Buddy scored and arranged many big band charts and played with the Bayside Big Band in Victoria.
