KLRU Schedule | Infinity Hall Live | Rubblebucket

It is clear from a single listen that Rubblebucket is not your ordinary indie band. Their unbridled sound is a collage of jazzy horns, rich drums, funky electric and rock elements all combined to form their own genre-bending style. As front woman and vocalist Kalmia Traver describes it "We're like indie/rock/dance with horns and the funk element, and then this slight sort of afro-punk, art-pop edge." With eight members in the band, Rubblebucket takes full advantage of a big, bold sound that engages their listeners. "The kind of music we play involves a lot of interlocking parts where everybody's part of a bigger whole," says bandleader Alex Toth. The band uses a multitude of instruments to create their unique sound including a trumpet, trombone, saxophone, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and additional percussive instruments. The most dynamic instrument in the group may be the voice of front woman Traver, whose vibrant vocals showcase an impressive range and stylistic ability. While based out of Brooklyn today, Rubblebucket evolved at the University of Vermont by Alex Toth and Kalmia Traver, who were both enrolled as music majors. The two of them played in a reggae band until they met percussionist Craig Myers at an art gallery opening in 2007. Their musical chemistry lead to the beginnings of Rubblebucket, and by 2008, the band released their first album, Rose's Dream. 2012 was a banner year for Rubblebucket. They graced the stage of the popular music festival Bonnaroo, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and received numerous positive reviews from Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Paste and the Wall Street Journal. Their set at Norfolk's Infinity Hall features ten song selections from their three albums, as well a couple of as-yet-unreleased tracks. Rubblebucket takes the stage with a presence that enthralls the crowd, keeping them dancing on their feet throughout the entire show. The show builds to a thrilling crescendo with the performance of "Came Out of a Lady" when the audience unfurls and waves a colorful silk parachute across the width of the room.
