The best kept secret in music


Rooster has created a unique hybrid of
hard hitting rock that one of our critics
called Guns and Skynyrd. Their original songs
have plenty of balls and attitude to spare and
the 5 piece band draws large crows to their
semi-regular showcases.



“High quality Rock N Roll ala Aerosmith, Stewart,
and classic southern rock. Good songs with instant
hooks that are loads of fun. Great vox and strong rhythm
section. I particularly like the piano and bluesy guitars.”


It’s enough to make people start asking questions like what label are you signed with and where can I get the CD. Leading to a truly unsolved mystery and Robert Stacks asking, “How can such a talented band be overlooked like this.”

Feeling a bit camera shy



After taking top honors in Good Times Magazines LONG ISLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL, Rooster has been hard at work writing, performing, and continuing to play their original style of home brewed hard hitting bluesy Americana rock that has gotten the recognition of industry and fans alike. The New York based quintet blends memorable hooks, gritty guitar, and edgy piano with vocals that dig and soar throughout each song.

Kohouts voice powers through each number with a take no prisoners attitude that is worthy of the bands reputation. Vassas pounding bass and McClains tireless drumming blend perfectly to support each tune. Zenkus barrelhouse piano, screaming B-3 organ and crisp backing vocals weave in and out as Kohout brings each song to a new level. Throw in Ronnie Tarinas fiery guitar solos and fresh bluesy licks, and you have a combination sure to satisfy any fan of new or classic rock alike.

To see Rooster live is to understand what there music is all about. From the opening chords to rockers like Sweet Elaine and Red Man, to the wistful and melodic meanderings of should-be radio hits like How Ya Been, the audience is treated to a rare breed of music that blends the energy and style of modern bands like The Black Crows with the blues sensibilities of classic rockers such as the Stones and Faces. Not that Rooster needs to be categorized or compared; their songs come alive and speak for themselves when performed at venues such as Kennys Castaways, one of their regular stops when playing in NYC.

Non-stop touring and performing has enabled the band to wow audiences from Denver to Memphis, and a stepped up local performance schedule will have them playing even more venues in the NY tri-state area. With a new CD on the horizon, Rooster ensures that their unique brand of American rock will be here to stay for quite some time, and that they will continue to please old fans, win over new audiences, and give us a dose of the kind of rock and roll that reminds us why it is fun to buy albums or see live music in the first place.
