Mike Ogliore, August 2015"The Bellevue Downtown Association has hosted Brian Butler (solo, duo & band) at numerous events over the years and we continue to be impressed with his connection to our audiences and professionalism. He always puts on a great show and his blues guitar style is spirited & soulful!"

Randy Williams, August 2015"If you're an Entertainment Director and want to look good - hire bluesman Brian Butler. Nobody's going anywhere while this guy's on stage. I shook almost as many hands for hiring him as he did for his performance. "
Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival
Lance Haslund, September 2015"The next time Brian Butler & Paul Green play our festival we'll be sure to put them in a larger venue. They had an SRO crowd spellbound. Great vocals, great players, and brilliant audience engagement. Do yourself a favor; hire these guys."
Highline Classic Jazz Festival
Kevin Callan, August 2015"I first saw Brian Butler play solo back in the 80's. Then a few years later I caught him with the Brian Butler Blues Band and was blown away with his guitar work and great blues rifts. Brian plays a lot of his own original material and it's really great stuff. I asked him to play at my 40th birthday party and Brian and his band were fantastic. Then he played at my 50th party and brought the roof down! He's been playing for our annual summer beach party for the last 5 years and he never disappoints, he's the main reason people don't miss it. Brian always puts on a great show and gets people out dancing in the sand. If you get a chance to see Brian, solo or with the band don't miss it! "
Beach Party Host
Paul, Willow and Dave , July 2015"Brian is a fantastic guitarist and singer who happens to be another longtime Northwest favorite. Steeply versed in the blues, Brian also likes to venture out and explore other styles of music. When performing on stage, he truly enjoys entertaining people, and his choice of material lends itself to telling stories set to music."
