Brad Rabuchin is a LA based guitarist who now splits time between leading his own band and a successful carrier as a sideman. Some of the Brad's credits include: Bonnie Rait, Roy Hardgrove, Louie Bellson, Pat Martino, Steve Turre, Al Kooper, Steve Wonder, Buddy Miles, Lean-to, Diane Shurr, David “Fathead” Newman, Willie Nelson and even Mr. Tom Jones. He also spent 5 years and toured 6 continents as the last guitarist with Ray Charles . All the while, though, Rabuchin has also been honing his own unique musical voice, just left of center.
Guitarist Rabuchin is not one to paint by the numbers, musically speaking, or play by a given set of rules. That much is clear on his 2 solo albums “When Smart Dogs Go Bad” and “ Cats Have Edge” .They are jazz albums with liberal doses of other, mutually compatible influences, from rock to funk to ethereal aesthetics, and back.
His band is no guitar dominated blowfest, but a musical outing accenting the leader’s compositional sensitivity and the delicate-yet-feisty textures of a carefully-conceived ensemble.He also has 2 new
albums out for 2019: "For John" a guitar duo project with David Becker, and "Held to a Different Standard" a quartet project with guitarist Allen Hinds.
