Reserved for Rondee began their musical journey together in November 2010. A melting pot of the NYC indy rock scene, Reserved For Rondee draws inspiration from classic artists like Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, U2 and contemporaries like the White Stripes, the Black Keys and Arcade Fire, blending imagination and style into a mystic rock journey. On the strength of their live performances and their debut EP RFR, released in February, 2012, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds necessary for the recording of Back In Velvet. Receiving support from an international audience, the band quickly met and exceeded its targeted goal. Recorded in Brooklyn, NY, Back In Velvet captures the vibrant sound of a band reflecting the energy that can only be found in New York, the greatest city in the world.
