A musician from a young age, Anthony Rucker, a.k.a. "Da Bass Man" chose to play the bass guitar in order to be just like his older brother. Soon after he choose the bass as his main instrument, he formed his own R&B/Funk band, The Soul Formula Band. Soul Formula was a popular R&B Funk band in the 70's and 80's in the Washington area venues for more than 10 years. Currently, Anthony has a few irons in the fire.
He can be found playing with a local gospel project for Amazing Grace A.M.E. Zion Church Praise Team as well as wearing his signature Funk Hats and was keeping it funky with blues legend Bobby Parker and the Blues Night Band on a national level before his passing.
X-FACTOR band delivers an authentic, polished funk and soul sound. For almost a decade, fellow DC natives Don Theo. (guitar & vocal) and Anthony B. Rucker. (bass guitar) have been putting the "R" and "B" in rhythm and blues, after an impromptu jam session several years ago. From that session they knew they had something special, and shortly after created X-FACTOR!
