"Little Joy at the Wonder Bar"

For those of you who showed up ready to listen, Saturday night...Little Joy...the Loose Roosters...Asbury Park...was a great night out w/ a few friends who happen to be supremely talented musicians.
...L.A. based band...Fabrizio Moretti of the Strokes...
Once inside the Wonder Bar fans were treated to three very cool but very different bands on the bill. Kicking off the proceedings were Asbury Park based alt-rockers the Loose Roosters, who immediately won over the crowd with their high-energy sound that seemed to draw from grunge and British hard rock bluesman. Their next gig is the Brighton Bar...and if you love rock, there are a lot worse places you could be...

Squaring the Circle - released Fall 2014



 The LOOSE ROOSTERS brand of Rock n Roll comes off with a delivery by those of which who had been enthralled into a vortex of viral infections. Attaining a fever they could not shake and spiraling into a glorious obsession. Fortunately for this trio from Asbury Park NJ, the man leading the charge would insist that an obsessed life is the only life to live anyway. And naturally with all that shaking going on and the electricity flowing, once the count is in, you can feel the danger spill out into the room. Playing with such a unique conviction that turns every head in the club towards this new vibration of energy that just suddenly erupted. Like seeing a pack of one eyed cats in a seafood store...or some snot nosed kid playing with his favorite toy. With the pure honesty of it all you'd be hard pressed to find someone not enjoying themselves...or at the least, curious to see what happens on stage next. 

 The DNA that makes up this sonic attack can be traced all the way back to that pounding rhythm that ignited it all in the 1950's. From the raw power of 60's garage rock to the imminent thunder of 70's psych rock. Coming up through the 80's indie underground and into the explosive alternating current of the begrunged 90's. The Roosters converge at the point of intersection where punk rock meets British blues - bashing it out. While unitedly they can be found aligned within the truest form of the Rock n Roll tradition, the Roosters still manage to be incomparable to any one band or genre that comes to mind. Retaining focus on gliding [through the atmosphere] as opposed to [the norm of] getting heavy...and tied down. In their originality you can hear their passion for playing loud uptempo rockers, but at the same time injecting vicious melody and creamy tunefulness into each number. No bullshit, this high-powered unit is fully transistorized. "It was what it was, it is what it is and the time was the time" - Eric Burdon
