More Info:

Paste Magazine writes of Rubblebucket: “Joyous jungles of worldly pop-funk, instrumentally rich but catchy enough to ass-kick Katy Perry off the pop charts (in a just world)–mega-melodic without sacrificing an ounce of atmosphere or creativity.”

Erupting with raw emotion, JC Brooks unleashes his soulful shouts and heart wrenching falsetto over the relentless rhythm of guitarist Billy Bungeroth, drummer Kevin Marks, and bassist Ben Taylor. The Uptown Sound is a force to be reckoned with, leading the Chicago Tribune to call them “the real deal” and MOJO Magazine identifying them as “one of the hottest US soul acts”, while the New York Times praised their “neo-soul glory” and the Onion AV Club declared their first album “relentlessly catchy”.

It’s live, it’s compelling, it’s now, it’s theatrical. So theatrical, in fact, that they were recently tapped to star in the critically-acclaimed run of the Tony Award-winning musical “Passing Strange” at the Chicago Center for the Performing Arts.

    This will definitely be a great show. Heard Rubblebucket brings it, and after seeing JC Brooks & the band at the soul summit last year in Chi-town I’ve put a bunch of friends on to them. Putting my dancing shoes by the door now!!

    My first exposure to Rubblebucket came not from any of their insanely catchy original tunes, but from their really cool, really original cover of the Beatles’ “Michelle.” I really dug that cover, and it got me into the rest of their material.

    And I’d like to see them at the Holocene because 1) I think it’s a great match of band and venue, and 2) They played at the Mt. Tabor Theater last year and I missed it and I haven’t stopped kicking myself since.

    It is Spring Break and I mistakenly went to Seattle. My wallet and phone were casualties.

    I would like to let Portland coddle me and put a spring back in my step with this upbeat show.

    I also came out of a lady, similar to Rubblebucket. We could share stories…
