INDEPEN-DANCE DAY! Hey folks, BragginBilly here. So you're in the city on Friday for the Fourth of July festivities and you caught the fireworks. Now what do you do? You hop the Red Line to Davis Square in Somerville where you'll find Johnny D's and one of the funkiest bands I've heard in a long time for FOUR BUCKS.
Rubblebucket Orchestra will Jam on the 4th
Rubblebucket Orchestra is not you Mamma's foot-tapping funk band. These guys are a flat-out "move everything" kind of groove. I first heard Rubblebucket when they stopped in to visit the folks over at WERS. I'm driving to get my lunch, they get started, and I like what I hear. Next thing I know I'm sitting in there, car dancing like a fool, while my buddies were "patiently" waiting for me to make it to Anna's Taqueria...mmmmm...Anna's. Anyway, the harassment I received when I finally got there was well worth it.
I've caught a bunch of great funk bands before. Some of my favorites are Brooklyn Funk Essentials, Liquid Soul and local greats, Babaloo. Its amazing that a band that's been together for such a short period of time, already falls into the same category. I cannot wait to catch this show on Friday. I hope to see you all there.
In the meantime, check out "540 Groove," an unreleased live recording from Stone Church in Newmarket, NH. Dig it!
