The Rubin Bros

A.J. and Colescott Rubin are Boston-based circus musicians, vaudeville entertainers, and jazz clowns who lift spirits and make smiles wherever they go, performing swing & popular songs of yesteryear with a lighthearted energy and danceable beat.

Known internationally for their unicycling, juggling, & acrobatics while playing instruments, they play sold out shows from coast to coast. They have performed and/or recorded with Esperanza Spalding, Old Crow Medicine Show, Patrice Rushen, Catherine Russell, Charmaine Neville, & John Legend, and around the world in New Orleans, Iceland, Moscow, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, and elsewhere.

Student and staff at Berklee College of Music respectively, they are recipients of the 2021 City of Boston Opportunity Fund Award, and that year also made their debut recording on all pre-1930s recording equipment in NYC. They play stadium halftime shows as the house brass band for the major league rugby team of New England and make their circus debut Sept. 2023. Follow them @rubinbrothers to see them in action!
