Minneapolis’ Rabeca never stays in one place for too long—each song meanders from meditative solos to upbeat drum shuffles and rich chordal harmonies. The quintet first joined forces for a living room cabaret performance in 2019 and have since melded their unique musical tastes into a hearty musical stew. Drawing on their individual backgrounds in jazz big band, madrigal singing, and jam bands, Rabeca fuses improvisation with catchy hooks. Their debut album, Potluck (2020). captures the band’s playful energy and love for a good meal. Rabeca is Alex (keys), Anna (saxophone), Colleen (guitar), David (bass), and Satchel (drums).
