The pair who form the RAZZBERRY JAZZBERRIES' drum kit couldn't be more different from one another. Whether they're attached on their stand, or separated from the kit, these brothers have a rhythm and banter all their own.
Buddy is the optimist who never misses a beat; Krupa is the pessimist who can descend into a funk without warning. Buddy is a goofball; Krupa, a sourpuss. Buddy showers others with praise while Krupa's your classic nitpicker. But they're not always good cop / bad cop. Buddy's joviality can occasionally be a drawback while Krupa's crustiness can prove beneficial. For example, sometimes Buddy is so happy that it borders on senseless, making his feedback less than helpful when a critical perspective is required. Conversely, Krupa's withholding of praise makes it especially meaningful when he does dole it out.
The dynamic between Buddy and Krupa offers plenty of comic relief. It's a rare moment when they aren't bickering, finishing the other's sentences, apologizing for each other, or competing over something - musical or otherwise. They are brothers, after all. While Krupa is a grumpy Gus, he's never mean. He's simply a perfectionist with high expectations; for himself as much as everyone else. And when he doesn't meet up to his own standards, he gets angry at himself and internalizes his feelings. As for Buddy, his positivity is always genuine. He truly believes that he's surrounded by the best musicians around – especially his brother – and that they deserve to be reminded of that always.
Buddy and Krupa may occasionally wish they were independent, but truth be told they need each other. They never let any of their disagreements stand in the way of their friendship, and they always put their differences aside in the end. And while there isn't much they can agree on, when it comes time to jam together, they keep perfect time. In drum duets, they'll often throw solos back and forth as though they are sharing a joyous conversation in a language only they can speak, but which everyone can understand.
