Spotlight on Bassist Jim Ruberto

Jim Ruberto has been a staple of Denver’s music scene for a damn long time. In recent years most of his efforts have been in the recording studio serving an extensive list of clients and producing critically acclaimed releases by such artists as Jen Korte & the Loss, Achille Lauro, and Charlotte Sass. He is currently a staff engineer at Blue Tower Studio and Mighty Fine Productions, but still likes to get out of the studio and perform now & then, and has been spotted on stage in 2012 with Charlotte Sass, John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light, Art Compost & the Word Mechanics and The Spotlight Dance & Variety Band. Check out his music and more on his website.

PRESS CLIPPINGS

"““Tequila Mockingbird Luck And Trouble The album takes the listener through several different types of rock, all done impeccably. The opening track "Blue" recalls the jam band feel of Santana with bluesy guitar riffs. But that vibe ends when the song ends—this album has far more than blues. The heavy "Actual Size" uses grunge-y guitar chords and deep, grumbling vocals from the frontwoman. The album takes a turn to country on "Luck And Trouble," which incorporates skillful slide guitar. Giving the record even more diversity, songs like "La Carta" and "Wrong?" sound like old ska-punk bands like Save Ferris or Bif Naked with horns, guitar distortion, and an upbeat tempo. Luck And Trouble gives the listener an album that showcases a variety of genres. Crossing into several musical styles in the same album is a nice break from bands whose albums consist of slight variations on the same song. Grade: A””"  Alicia Schuster, UCD Advocate

"“Luck and Trouble is the strongest testament yet of this longtime Denver band’s ability to shake loose the branches of more sedentary, laid-back alternative roots-rock. Give Wendy Clark some serious credit here, she stands toe-to-toe with Chrissie Hynde in the ‘chicks that rock’ department.” - Chris K., The Colorado Sound (Jan 15, 2010)"  - Chris K, The Colorado Sound
