Biography

Kakawww! Remember what happens when you used to pour pop rocks in soda? WHAT? WOH! We’re pop rocks, and our soda is the ever-flowing carbonation of energy, style, and stimulation we bring whenever we hit the stage. It’s what everybody spends all week working their asses off for – letting loose in the moment and relishing the vibrations rumbling through their veins. Simply put, we fuse infectious funk rock jams over tongue twisting rhymes and soul melting melodies. But come on, words weren’t invented to describe music - music was invented to describe music.

While Studying at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, “machine gun” lyricist Multi-ID and symphonic bassist Philip Griffin, who studied with the principal bassist of the Dallas Symphony for 5 years, began to explore how they could uniquely combine their talents to create sonic indulgence. They soon established a presence that made them hungry to round up a punch-packing ensemble at all costs. Wanting nothing but the best, they pulled guitarist Ted Lauck from an already popular band on campus. With “music is life” tattooed on his arm and multiple instruments under his command, aspiring concert pianist DJ PAC fit the job description for a keyboardist/turn-tablist/sampler like a glove. Next they literally plucked drummer Dustin Boersch out of high school, who had been recommended as one of the area’s best since the ripe old age of 14. With the musical foundation in place, the finishing touch of soothing R&B vocals was boldly filled by J Sabin, an experienced writer/producer/engineer of gospel, pop, R&B, hip-hop, and country. As all talents combined, Big Red Rooster was born, a group fitting together like birds of a feather, and the writing was on the wall (or on this bio, no pun intended).
