It has been a while since we have released or played around town and it’s good to say hello to the ones who still read our e-mails. There have been major changes, Katerpillar (Rod Soriano) has embarked on a solo adventure in the world of Acoustic Melodic Tap. Stripping down all the other elements to expose the core, the vision of life translated through music. Hopefully shining a glimmer light to the, how’s, who’s, and the why’s of The Beautiful the love and the Ugly. Things never stay the same, and there really is no end just a new beginning. For all that it’s worth, this music is the keeper of these tales and every time they are played these stories live on forever.
We're Katerpillar, and the rumors are true: We're the new sound of funk-break/groove-rock music. Our jams fuse rock, Latin percussion, hip-hop and funk styles.
Singer-songwriter Rod Soriano’s uniquely edgy melodies and polished lyrics have attracted a family of musicians that make up Katerpillar’s funky groove-rock style:
World-famous DJ Hazze adds sick scratch tracks, signature raps and unmatched energy to Katerpillar’s pumped-up sound.
Singer Lindsay Cole brings sass and soul with thought-provoking lyrical stylings and lilting melodic intricacies.
Bassist Alex Romero tests the limits of his craft with elaborate sophistication and precision, contributing a driving momentum to Katerpillar's funk foundation.
Percussionist Jay Pacheco throws in a spicy Latin complexity using an array of percussive instruments from bongos and congas to timbales and chimes.
Drummer Paul Cassarino is the metronomic master, offering solid beats that perfectly fuse our rock, hip-hop and funk-influenced style.
Trumpeter Danny Kay brings it with feisty finesse, contributing dynamic accentuation to our already unique dynamic.
