Biography

ROOSTER

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.

Lyrics

Cry

Written By: Billy Kohout

Fly me to the moon
And show me up to your room
I wanna see the things that you do
Tell me that you really care
and you can love me honey if you dare
Lord knows you drive me crazy well its true
If I had a dime for every time I said maybe
I'd be a rich, rich, rich man baby
And i'd feel so fine
Now can you hear me callin out you name
Now Beverly lately its not the same
Everywhere I look I see your big green eyes
I really miss you and its just not fair
I wanna kiss you and touch your long brown hair
I may not have said the words that you longed to hear
I truly loved you dear
If I had a dime for everey time I said Maybe
I'd get back together with you again now baby
And all I wanna do is
Chorus
Cry, Cry, Cry
Cry, Cry, Cry
When I think of how it used to be Between you and me
I wanna Cry, Cry, Cry
Cry, Cry, Cry
Every time I think of you and I I just wanna just wanna cry

Nobody Loves You

Written By: Kane & Kohout

Nobody Loves You
Nobody Loves You
Nobody Loves You
Nobody Loves You Like I do
Nobody Need You
Nobody Need You
Nobody Need You
Nobody Need You like I do
Chorus
Sit tight darlin dont you know that daddys comin home
Said it'll be alright now
I'm coming back where I belong
Nobody Love You
Not the Lord above you
Nobody Care for you
Or say a prayer for you like I do
Nobody Need You
No one deceive you
Nobody leave You
Nobody Need You like I do
Chorus

How ya Been

Written By: Zenkus & Kohout

Chorus
Baby... I said "How Ya Been" Oh yeah I said Baby.... Well its good to see you again

Well on a good day I can see straight across broadway
On a bad day I can slowly hear you destroy yourself
You see the world through your stained glass eyes can you realize
I can see your pain

Chorus
Baby... I said "How Ya Been" Oh yeah I said Baby.... Well its good to see you my friend

Well how long has it been how many years have passed us by
Am I mistaken or did life take the sparkle form your eye
For something gained yeah ya know i've been told there's something lost
Was it worth the cost

Chorus

Time hasn't been to kind to you
It hasn't been so kind no
And life hasn't been to fair its true
Said to the likes of, to the likes of you

Chorus
Baby... I said "How Ya Been" Oh yeah I said Baby.... Well its good to see you my friend

Well on a bad day well there's just no way
I can reach you at all
You're the girl with the stained glass eyes
And i'm mesmerized as I watch you fall
