Through luck and circumstance we have one more Roots Night at The Beale for you, and then we will be searching for a new venue. Please come and help us celebrate the conclusion of our Beale location by coming to hear Kubick’s Rubes!
Kubick’s Rubes mines the old-time and bluegrass styles, with a little country and swing thrown in for good measure. The Rubes love a great song, close harmonies, and the simple pleasures of picking together. Although the Rubes are a new band, the members are no strangers to the local music scene.
Performing mainly on fiddle, and singing harmony, Betsy Kubick plays bluegrass, old time, Cajun, and other roots-type music. She is currently a member of the “Pickle Sisters” and always wanted to name a band “Kubick’s Rubes.”
Betsy and guitarist, Mark Manzoni, have been singing and playing together for years. A guitar junky since childhood, Mark unplugged after hearing Doc Watson and David Bromberg play flat-pick style in the 70s. Mark plays many different types of music, but spends most of his time picking traditional and bluegrass styles.
Cap Cooke is their banjo picker, now living in Ovid, NY. Apart from the Rubes, he is one half of the duo “Cap and Cady” and plays banjo for “Chad Darou and Stealing Time.”
Joining them on bass is Jordan Kleiman, who has played jazz and roots music in Philadelphia and Rochester since the 1980s. Aside from the Rubes, he plays bass with Rochester-based bluegrass band “The Crooked North,” backs up the “Pickle Sisters,” and enjoys taking an occasional old-time gig with the “Wild Root String Band,” the “Rough Alley Rounders,” and others.
Old Time Hoedown will start the night off at 7:30 and then clear the stage around 8:15 for Kubick’s Rubes, who will excite you with their strings and vocals from 8:30-9:30. Then for the final hour we’ll invite all you instrument-totin’ folks to join us for a rousing old-time jam, which will wrap up around 10:30.
Please join us for our last night at The Beale on Thursday, May 12th! Check it out, grab a bite to eat, quench your thirst with a cool and refreshing libation, and allow yourself to be thrilled with some great music!
Hope to see you:
