Randy Bucksner is a musician, concert promoter, author, story slammer, and fashion peddler who has traveled the world working with International brands. Although he’s been in the Lancaster area for nearly three decades, Randy was born and raised in the Northeast Philadelphia. He is one of the most recognizable sax players in the region, but the impact he’s had on the Central PA music scene extends far beyond his horn.

Randy is a true advocate of creating community and collaboration between musicians. For the past ten years Randy has been organizing the Gypsy Moon Blues Festival in East Petersburg, he books annual blues nights at Tellus360 in Lancaster, he has been volunteering with WXPN for over a decade, and also booked Central PA showcases at World Cafe Live in Philly for over seven years.

Beyond his lifelong commitment to music, Randy is now finishing his first memoir and very recently began performing at regional story slams, where he’ll soon be competing in the York Story Slam championship. He has managed to do all of this while working as a fashion sales rep for brands here and abroad for over thirty years, a career that has allowed him to raise a family while traveling all around the US and Europe.

Randy Bucksner is a DO.ER in every sense of the word, with a lifetime of experience creating and collaborating with others here in Central PA. It was a lot of fun learning more about Randy’s journey and what inspires him to keep on doing all of the cool stuff he does.
