The Bucket Boys
About The Bucket Boys
The Chicago Bucket Boys are from Chicago’s South Side. They grew up with violence and chaos. But they’ve risen from being street performers, who would play anywhere for loose change and small bills, to jet-setting professionals. They were “discovered” in the late summer of 2002. Someone from the Chicago Bulls front office saw them while shopping and had them perform during a home game. They got a standing ovation, and have never looked back. In 2004, they performed at the NBA All-Star Game with the likes of OutKast, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce. The Bucket Boys now perform regularly at Chicago Bulls home games and functions. Who could imagine that drumming on plastic buckets could have transformed their lives.
