"The Beat Goes On"

A mere two days later (10/29) brought a special Halloween BITCH show to Don Hill's, including several bands. Jim Wallerstein and his band Vacationland came down from Maine (where he lives with his mate, mother of rock-n-roll BeBe Buell) and treated NYC to a great set of songs. Bruce Hubbard (formerly of Gene Pool) followed with a set of his insightful high-quality tunes. - New York Waste Dec. 2003 Robert Lund


"Bruce Hubbard Band Returns To NYC"

The Bruce Hubbard Band returns to NYC. This right wing rocker returns to the Big Apple for on September 15 at the Lizard Lounge in Mid-Town.

(PRWEB) September 10, 2004 -- The Bruce Hubbard band returns to NYC on September 15th at The Lizard Lounge (240 W 54th St.)in mid-town at 8PM. This band is a must see for anyone who loves well crafted pop-rock n' roll. Their finely tuned harmonies and energetic live performance will satisfy your need for great live music, and send you off with a song you can't get out of your head.

But what makes this band unique is their decidely right wing front man Bruce (obviously no relation to Springsteen). During a time of protests and the RNC coming to town it is a breathe of fresh air to hear a band that does not bash the President or the American Soldier.

Bruce's song "Black Nostalgia" speaks of the tragedy of the return of his brother from the battle field of Iraq. The song delves into the harsh realities of war, but somehow leaves the listener with the feeling of hope and pride in one's country.

The Bruce Hubbard Band's music is bursting with great lyrics and insiteful messages like the one's found in "Balck Nostalgia". Make sure to check them out while they swing through town. Unless of course your too busy protesting.

Bio

Bruce Hubbard started writing music and performing live at the age of 16, in St. Petersburg, FL. His first stage experiences were performing in musicals and in local & state competitions. It was a collection of old LP’s that had been collecting dust on the front porch of his childhood home that opened his eyes to Rock N’ Roll. He was heavily influenced early on by bands like The Beatles, The Who, Boston and Led Zeppelin.
But... his career in music really began to take shape in 1993 at Shenandoah University, where he studied voice, music theory and piano. This is also where he formed his first band “3lb Universe”. Based on the encouragement of the students and staff at the University the band moved from the relative obscurity of Winchester, VA to Philadelphia, the “City of Brotherly Love”, where they met producer / manager Bob Squires Jr. and Scott & Brian Bricklin, who recorded the band's first CD titled “Open” at Martin's Dam studios. The disc was released in 1995 on Muckraker Records and distributed by Redemption Records (www.redemption.net). With the CD, the band achieved modest success on local and regional radio stations like WMMR, WXPN and WDRE, as well as national success on college radio. The band toured extensively throughout the region from Connecticut to Virginia, breaking attendance records at local clubs. However, the youth and inexperience of the band would eventually lead to its demise.
After a short hiatus in Florida, Bruce set his eyes on New York City where he discovered the power of Blues and Jazz that can only be found in the world’s melting pot. This is also where he formed the band “Strain” in 1996. Strain would be an outlet for Bruce’s desire to write music in the vein of his early influences. Strain played some 265 shows in its short 1½ yr life.
Bruce then went on to form “The Gene Pool”, which was a power pop rock band blending Bruce’s classic rock influences with modern rock and pop. It was through this band where he met producer Mike Barile of Purple Light Productions.
This partnership would lead to Bruce Hubbard’s first solo recording entitled “Cheap China Dreams”. This would be the culmination of years of songwriting and give him an outlet for all of the influences he’s gathered over his life. This CD features Bruce’s love of Blues, Rock n Roll and Pop in a powerful collection of songs that are sure to provoke the listener’s emotions as well as define Bruce Hubbard as a relevant artist and fixture in the national music community.
