Hailing from all parts of the world, but located in Boston, MA, Red Rooster was formed based upon a strong friendship and a dually equal passion for music.
Their influences range from the head-rattling funk of Red Hot Chili Peppers, to the enveloping sound of Broken Social Scene, to the soul of musical forefathers like Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and George Clinton.
Their sound matches their personalities: a let loose, have a beer (or 8), and jump along sound. To check our the music and get more info visit www.redroosterband.com

Set length: 0:45 - 1:45. Our originals (in no particular order):
(a ska/rock song about a city in Suriname known for it's diverse people)
-"Revolution of the Flies"
(a soul/funk song that discusses the possibility of an overtaking by a smaller species)
(a dark Indie progressive song that explores the more aggressive side of Red Rooster)
(a jazz/soul influenced song that discusses one of music's forefathers: Frank Sinatra)
(A catchy reggae tune with great sounding progressions)
-"The Way you Go Down"
(an acoustic ballad turned into a mean, gut-ripping progressive rock tune)
(one of Red Rooster's original songs - an acoustic ballad that envelopes the audience; the lyrics and music portray the feeling of breaking out of personal or actual prison.)
(a seemingly light song that merges into a very progressive experimental, and yet dark, sound)
-"The Elephant Song"
(a light, head-bopping song that makes the listener feel like they weighed two tons and had a trunk for a nose)
-"Trials and Tribulations of a Rainy Morning"
(a quiet soul tune that progresses into an outrageous funk party)
(an experimental song that has noticeable Spanish influences that progresses into a funk jam that includes a vocal and trumpet solo)
(a hard-hitting ska song that pounds the listener in the face and says, "Do you want more?!")
-"Stepping Razor", by Peter Tosh
-"Light My Fire", by The Doors
-"Pawn Shop", by Sublime
-"Desecration Smile", by Red Hot Chili Peppers
-"Go To Sleep", by Radiohead
-"Heart of the City," by Whitesnake/Jay Z
