RICK JACKSON/ROOSTER / Bio

ROOSTER:

A 4 piece Original Rock band with classic rock influences, based out of (Hanover Ma. South of Boston) Rooster formed some years ago,
Rooster's sound is mixed with so many influences from past great Rock & Power Pop Bands, their music can be labeled as rock, melodic, straight forward, sad, upbeat, moody, fantastic, mystical,
Longing, lost times, traumatic and so on......

Vocals are done by Rick & Tommy, with Johnny taking leads on 3 tracks from Tales and 1 from Hello & 1 from Five, whoever came up with the song, usually sang it, the bands sound and lyrics as well as the vocals compliment each other so well, that it takes you on a "trip" from the 60's to the early 70's and farther and back again, so let's drift away and get lost in their sound and enjoy everybody, (PEACE)

ROOSTER is: Rick Jackson from Rockland Ma. (Drums/Percussion/lyricist/lead & harmony vocals,) Tom Nava from Kingston Ma. - (Lead & Rhythm guitar/lead & harmony vocals/lyricist,) John Cesarini from Hanson Ma. (Bass guitar/some vocals/some lyrics), Bryan Birtwell from Norwell Ma. (Lead & Rhythm guitar)

Some members of Rooster have shared the stage with these classic rock icons: Foghat, The Outlaws, Blue Oyster Cult, and The Byrds (Roger McGuinn)
