Biography

Reserved For Rondee was founded in New York City in 2010 by Billy Magnussen (guitar), Tom Degnan (bass) and Warren Hemenway (drums). With the addition of Nick Fokas (guitar) and the electrifying Trevor Vaughn (vocals), the lineup was complete. Reserved for Rondee has been packing club venues around the NYC area with its exciting and diverse brand of indie rock ever since. Drawing inspiration from classic artists like Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, The Who, and U2 and contemporary artists like the White Stripes, the Black Keys and Arcade Fire, Reserved for Rondee blends imagination and style into a mystic rock journey.

Without any outside assistance RFR starting out playing intimate Lower East Side venues (Arlene's Grocery, Fontana's, Bowery Electric), RFR quickly progressed to headlining at more spacious clubs (Mercury Lounge and Brooklyn's Glasslands & The Knitting Factory) and supporting national touring acts at theater-sized venues (Irving Plaza and the Gramercy Theater).

In 2011 Reserved For Rondee released its debut video "Year of Warrin'", which was followed up in 2012 by the release of the band's debut self-titled EP.

In 2012 Reserved For Rondee also embarked upon a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording it's 1st full-lenth album, Back in Velvet. The campaign led to the band being featured in a profile in Interview Magazine.

On August 21, 2013 Reserved for Rondee released its debut record "Back in Velvet " to a sold out crowd at The historic Bowery Ballroom in New York City .

Somethin in a post haste craze goin on today (2X)
Hoppin like a fire starter hotter than a man can take

Clocked him on the jaw at 34th & Astoria
Made a phone call but no one picked up the other line
So i got all my money I got all my gear
I got in my car i got outta here
I'm goin home..home..home!!
Where they pick up the phone

I found a lovely place where everybody seems to smile
& I had me some fun for a little while
i found me a hunny who spent all my money
I got all my gear You guessed it bunny
I'm goin home..home..home!!
Where they pick up the phone

cause sometimes things get rough & ugly
You wanna run away
Sometimes you play the game so badly
You never more will play
People spit in your face

Clocked him on the jaw at 34th & Astoria
Made a phone call but no one picked up the other line
So i got all my money I got all my gear
I got in my car i got outta here
I'm goin home..home..home!!
Where they pick up the phone
I'm goin home (3X)

City

Written By: Reserved for Rondee

These 5 months now you've been gone
playin town to town
This city waits just like my arms
To welcome you back in

& we both know
Our love still grows
But what remains
When we have changed?

I wanna show you how
This city makes me howl (2X)

Alarms awake
it's 5am & curtains up again
This city's pace don't ever slow
So how will are day end?

& we know why
We choose to fight
& we know why
We gulp the wine

I wanna show you how
This city make me howl (2X)

Lemme show you how
This city makes me howl (4x)

Mad with confidence
This city takes me in
Low I find myself
In a fight
I know will win

So hold my head up high
This city
Hold my head up high
This city

Hold head high
& I will (3X)

Win!!! (2X)
