RUBBLEBUCKET



rubblebucket.com

Someone once said that if Brooklyn and New Orleans had a love child it would be conceived while listening to Rubblebucket: a wild young eight-some from Brooklyn, Boston and Burlington, Vermont. Drawing influence from the likes of Talking Heads (large band), James Brown and Bjork, their banging horns and bombastic dance beats provide a landscape for the warm vocals of lead lady Kalmia. In the 2 years since their mythical seminal gig their all-original afro-beat inspired, horn-laden music has come to define a new genre: rock-ro-beat. Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth, formerly of the John Brown's Body horn section, joined forces with the worldly percussionist Craig Myers (of Mike Gordon Band) and what started as a party jam followed by 9 hour rehearsals (containing meditative 40-minute vamps) has evolved into a genre-mashing maelstrom of hot-blooded West African funk rhythms and scorching soul melodies whose gigs regularly turn into raucous dance parties of the highest order.
