WILD RABBIT SALAD

Ragin Americana!

Honed and hardened in honkytonks, ice houses, bars and bistros in the bayou city Wild Rabbit Salad has been bringing Americana blues and country-rock to listeners for twelve years. Their 4th album will be released in February 2020. Reviewers of the new album said “brilliant all around”; “reminds me of a Springsteen lyric, it is just as good as Bruce”; “I can listen to this band all day”; “The vocals are INSANE. I love it”; “has a kick to it. . . makes me want to dance”; “feels like it has a deep hidden meaning, that needs to be uncovered by listening closely”; “a mix of awesome and uniqueness, every song so far I truly love and have become a fan”

Fronted by Alabama native Bucky Goldberg and classically trained Marietta Roebuck the band has released three albums highlighting their intense, lyrically rich, groove-instilled music. The band has a smooth, intense and powerful stage show.

Bucky was raised on southern sound of Muscle Shoals and rhythm and blues-belters Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Percy Sledge. He jumped off his songwriting journey with the rise of the Beatles and Bob Dylan, Cream and the Yardbirds who guided the shape of not only his songs, but his career.

Bucky’s first band, the Drones was initially chauffeured around the southeast by their parents at age 14 and had a few records under their belt (co-written by Goldberg).They toured Alabama every weekend crisscrossing the countryside with other relatively unknown bands that would later become the iconic groups Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers. Not bad company.

The songwriters helping shape Goldberg’s current sound include Jake Bugg, Ed Shereen, Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Towns Van Zandt.

The lead female singer of Wild Rabbit Salad, and Goldberg’s co-writer, Marietta, was classically trained at the Moore School of Music at the University of Houston after winning an audition-only placement in the music program. She has trained as a vocalist since childhood and possesses an ease and tension in here vocals that is at once angelic and heart breaking. Her songwriting influences include Paul Williams, Joan Baez, Janis Ian and Joni Mitchell.

Bucky and Marietta met at an open mic at McGonigle’s Mucky Duck in Houston. Bucky followed Marietta to a second open mic the next night at the now defunct Cosmos Cafe. Their first date soon followed. The wrote their first song together soon thereafter and the rest is history.

In addition to packing venues around the state, their music has won numerous awards and honors including being chosen for the soundtrack of the motion picture Baker’s Mound which won awards at the Houston International Film Festival. They’ve been chosen to perform at the Cutting Edge Music Festival and the NewWorks Showcase in New Orleans and private showcases in numerous other festivals. They’ll be on tour of the Southeast from Texas to Nashville promoting their new album Tecumseh Valley in 2020.

Their live band brings together Niagra Falls Hall of Famer Willie Favero on bass, Mike Delmonico on bass and professional touring drummer Marty Naul. Their new release has a terrific feature by Madeline Herdeman on cello. Wild Rabbit Salad combines their in-the-pocket riffs and beats to create an ethereal, rhythmic backdrop for the songwriters to use as a canvas for their myriad of songs.

Their soon-to-be released Droptop Cadillac showcases the songwriting influence of Hank Williams and Towns Van Zandt on strong, visual lyrics that give the melodies a groove that is the distinctive Wild Rabbit Salad sound their fans have come to describe simply as FRESH salad.

You won’t be disappointed!
