In a recent album review by HypeTree, Small Room 9 is described as having music that: "has the power to inspire you; to give you an extra push, some extra strength to power through whatever it is you’re doing or dealing with. For music to reach you like that, it really needs to be special. Bands like U2 and The Foo Fighters know how to write a song that can lift you up and give you the hope and strength you need to get moving. Well add another band to that list: Small Room 9." - HypeTree News.
Their song "Paging Ground Control" is now included in the video game Rock Band 3 on the XBOX 360! Smallroom9 came in #1 on the AirPlay Direct Rock Chart! 75 stations world wide, both fm and internet, began playing SR9 in rotation in a span of 4 days, and the more stations pick them up every day. Small Room 9 has enjoyed success taking their rock music to such venues as Club La Vela, the House of Blues, headlining the International Music Festival between the U.S. and Canada, the Triple B Festival in Pensacola, Florida, HubFest in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, CPRFest in Biloxi, MS, and even played live on the Real Radio / TV Show in New York City! They have shared the stage with Ludacris, Evanescence, Nonpoint, the Wailers (Bob Marley's old band!), Stroke 9, Foxy Shazam, Shenandoah, P.O.D., Chavelle, Chingy, and more. The Budweiser Company promoted Small Room 9 as one of only a handful of bands in the entire nation as a "True Music" band. They were featured on a VH1 aired commercial and played an MTV party for the "The Real World" cast.
The original members of Small Room 9, Glenn Sasser and Rod Mooney, are now joined by the dynamic Joseph "Fluff" Kinkead on the drums and the smooth Rusty Galt on bass; together, they have formed a unique, exciting sound all their own. “SR9′s sound is compared to bigger names such as Stone Temple Pilots, Fuel, U2, or Tonic. Powerful guitar riffs and moving lyrics have given SR9 a distinct sound all their own that can only be described as original rock. Nothing too heavy, nothing too pop, just straight up ROCK and ROLL. ” —Herman Snell – The Jackson Free Press.
