Brad Rabuchin grew up in Pasadena, Ca oblivious to the classic rock era of the 60s until one night  on TV catching Mason Williams playing his guitar instrumental “Classical Gas” on a guitar with fish swimming around inside of it! He then delved into playing, first mostly acoustic finger style and later getting into electric but never finding a way to incorporate the fish. Brad studied music at Pierce Junior College, but his musical identity was more drawn from self study and several excellent private teachers including Ted Greene. Brad now splits time between leading his own band and a successful career as a sideman. Brad spent 5 years and toured 6 continents as the last guitarist with Ray Charles. Some of his other credits include: Bonnie Rait, Roy Hargrove, Louie Bellson, Pat Martino, Steve Turre, Al Kooper, Steve Wonder, Buddy Miles, Lean-to, Diane Shurr, David “Fathead” Newman, Willie Nelson & Tom Jones. Brad is not one to paint by the numbers, musically speaking, or play by a given set of rules, as is clear on his 2 solo albums When Smart Dogs Go Bad and Cats Have Edge. Please visit for more info.
