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 Ministries Praise Team. While wearing his signature Funk Hats, he was keeping it funky with the late blues legend Bobby Parker and the Blues Night Band on a national level before Bobby's passing.  And most recently he can be found combining the funk with the blues with Nucleus & Friends Blues Band .
