After her daughter left home in 1997, Buell returned to music to record a solo effort with producer Don Fleming, released in 2000. She also performed around New York with the Bebe Buell Band, and later up with Boston musicians The Rudds and The Neighborhoods drummer Johnny Lynch to form a new band for a few shows which also includes husband Jim Wallerstein. In April 2009, the Boston duo Chester French released a tribute to Buell with their album track "Bebe Buell". As of June 2009, the line-up for The Bebe Buell Band is: Bebe Buell on vocals, Jim Wallerstein on guitar, Pete Marshall on bass , David Matos on lead guitar, Aya on keyboards, Lindsey Anderson on guitar and Bobbie Rae on drums.
