"broken carousel"

Broken Carousel are a roots rock outfit who know how to set up a groove and ride it. Hints of the Allman brothers, the Grateful Dead, and the Band all add up to great patio music. We were all tapping our feet during this set, and it's to the bands credit that they filled up a 35-minute slot with enough riffage to make it seem like a full concert. Great stuff. - Jezebel Music


-"The Set at JSM" live in-studio video DVD, recorded on July 15, 2008, contains 5 live tracks and is available for viewing at

-"...your proven alibi", the band's debut CD, was released in April 2008. Grammy-award winning producer/engineer Gene Paul calls it "a great album!"

-"California Blues" is the first single and has been released initially as part of iLLumina Records' ROCKERS FOR LIFE compilation. The band's full length CD "...your proven alibi" was released in April 2008.



Broken Carousel blends funky rhythms with old school rock n roll guitars around big, harmony-drenched choruses. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Greg Bucking traveled extensively with various musical projects, most notably his former band Mother Freedom, with which he wrote and recorded two albums and the soundtrack for the indie film "My Brother Jack". Broken Carousel's debut CD "...your proven alibi" is available now and showcases the wealth of styles and sounds incorporated into a collection of songs culled from a yearlong cross-country journey. Live, the band establishes a funky groove and builds a syncopated sonic interplay between bassist Ricardo Rodriguez and drummer Joe Beninati on one side, and keyboardist Dan Nachimson and guitarist Greg Bucking on the other. Greg’s vocal melodies lead the listener on a lyrical journey through tales of love, desire, hope, weariness, and blunt acknowledgement of what is and what might be. And accentuating all of these are the soaring soul harmonies and infectious vibes of Pandhora and Charlene, putting the final exclamation point on each line and each song, resulting in a seamless mix of bluesy rock n roll and New Orleans soul funk.
