Friends took us to the Buckingham for our first visit. Simply put it was an excellent experience. We were there for the Sunday jam session and the talent/music was very good. Drinks were reasonably priced. The audience was diverse but everyone had a great time!

I like going on Friday nights when there are visiting bands. The cover charge is usually $10. Drinks are reasonably priced and the staff if great. Sunday afternoons are relaxing with good blues live music.
