rubbleb 1Rubblebucket Orchestra is a highly successful local band with 10 members, all from diverse backgrounds. As a result, they have a very unique multi-faceted style which has been described as a fusion of Afrobeat, rock, neo-psychedelic soul, and West African funk. The group’s leaders Alex Toth and Kalmia Traver are also members of the nationally known reggae band, John Brown’s Body. The instrumentation of the group includes vocals, brass, keyboard, guitar, percussion, and a West African stringed instrument called a N’goni

Formed in 2007, Rubblebucket Orchestra has already well established their popularity in the Northeast and continues to be on the rise. They were named “Best New Band of 2008” by Seven Days Vermont and were also the winner of the 2008 Jam Off! competition hosted by Relix Magazine. They recorded an album in 2007 entitled Rose’s Dream.  I know that this post is last minute, but the great thing is that they are a local band, so you will have plenty of other chances to hear them if you miss them this time around. You can check out their concert schedule right here.
