Kroovy Rookers / Bio

The tracks on this page are uncut demos from the "No More Boring Crap" EP...recorded way back in 2006.

And now the story begins...

Kroovy Rookers formed in Red Deer Alberta in May of 2004.

Vocalist / Guitarist Rod Rookers and Drummer Rowdy Rookers starting writing songs shortly before adding full time Bass player Remi Rooker to the fold, making the band a 3 piece capable of playing live shows around Alberta.

As a 3 piece they recorded the 26 song "First Blood, Last Stand" CD comprised of some early demos and basement recordings of almost everything they had come up with by the winter of 2005.
This was almost the end of Kroovy Rookers, with Vocalist Rod Rookers moving back to Boston, Mass, but the hiatus was short lived and Kroovy Rookers was back in business in the spring of 2006.

A lead guitarist "Dragon Rooker" (who was at the time a big fan of Dragonforce) was added to the band and some new recordings were done resulting in the No More Boring Crap EP.

Soon after, Dragon Rooker left the band and a new guitarist "Jenny Woo Rooker" took over lead guitar duties and added a bit of flash to the band for a while. Rod Rookers continued songwriting began to progress resulting in some strong new compositions, in an effort to avoid repetition of the older material, and former style of the band.

Rod Rookers moved to Edmonton in 2009 to book shows at DV8 Tavern.

Some newer recordings came about, and will soon be released as the "Hurry Up And Wait" EP featuring Jenny Woo Rooker on lead guitar...these tracks were supposed to be released on a label as a 7" but after sitting on these tracks for almost 2 years the band decided on making it another self released EP.

Kroovy Rookers have played shows with a who's who of great Canadian Punk bands such as D.O.A., The Ripcordz , S.N.F.U. NOmeansNO and a few seminal U.K. bands like The U.K. Subs and The Vibrators plus a ton of Alberta based Punk bands and touring acts from across Canada and a few from the States.

Kroovy Rookers hasn't done any major touring yet, but has played many Alberta shows and a few in Saskatchewan and 2 in Vancouver.

Back to being a three piece, Kroovy Rookers plans to keep playing live, and is writing a bunch of new material and hopes to do some more recording in the near future, with their sites set on releasing an official full length CD with proper production, packaging ect.

The band would like to do a lot more shows outside of Edmonton, and hopes to some day make their mark on Canadian Punk History.
