Fullerton, CA 92832
Jump-start your weekend with a rockin’, toe-tappin’ show featuring eclectic local singer-songwriter-guitarist Jeff Rubio and some talented friends and family.
A product of the Downtown Fullerton music scene and a familiar face at Ziings, Jeff pens witty, infectious songs that range from rootsy rockers to catchy ballads. Most tell stories, with such characters as a secretly frail stage diva in the mysterious “Kathleen” and a wide-eyed hipster alien touring an earthling village in the era of Trump in the fun, satirical “Like A Human Being.”
Jeff and his cohorts also deliver vibrant, often danceable versions of songs by other artists. A list of tunes might include the likes of Van Morrison, James McMurtry, Counting Crows, The Replacements, Talking Heads, The Cure, Natalie Merchant, U2, The Decemberists, The Black Keys and Leon Bridges.
Jeff, who is also known locally for his work with the alternative roots trio Crooked Highway, has an extensive history on the other side of the stage lights, including many years as a theater writer and critic for the Orange County Register. His byline has also appeared in such leading national arts publications as American Theatre magazine.
He’ll be joined by his brother Joe Rubio, a seasoned player from the Bay Area, on bass. Also on hand is a pair of Jeff’s musical bro’s from the Ziings stage: virtuoso guitarist Anthony Williams, who hosts the club’s popular Thursday open-mic sessions, and solid local drummer Chris Taylor.
