New York City based The Rozatones are a six piece soulful acid rock group known for up-tempo rhythms, spicy melodies and an incomparable energy that makes for a passionate and unforgettable live show. Formed in Ithaca, NY in 2006, the group became an instant college favorite landing a performance at Ithaca’s State Theatre opening for Soulive. 2007's Taste So Good was voted "Best funk rock album of the year" by the Ithaca Times, and 2009's Body On The Move has been the breakout album the band needed. They've appeared twice on Good Morning America (2008) and won the MAGIC HAT BREWERY On Tour Contest in the winter of 2010, earning them a sponsored tour with the popular brewing company. Through the years they’ve performed at venues such as The Studio at Webster Hall, Sullivan Hall, and Canal Room(NYC),Brooklyn Bowl, Bell House, and Union Hall (Brooklyn), Castaways, The Haunt and State Theatre(Ithaca), Blockley Pourhouse(Philadelphia), Red Square(Burlington, VT), and Neietzche’s (Buffalo, NY). A whirlwind of funk, rock, and soul, bolstered by jazz progressions and sumptuous vocals, The Rozatones, are not afraid to break some rules. Their savory sound is dance-oriented and their provocative lyrics tie up the whole package.
At centerstage is one Revi Roza, a guitar-slinging chanteuse who sings straight from the heart over her guitar's slinky funk lines. Her songs have it all: organic and sophisticated, deeply personal and relatable. Onstage, her starpower commands your attention, but the five cats behind her are stiff competition. The band consists of Miles Crettien (bass) Sam Podell (sax), Mikey Conerty (trumpet), Dave Cohen(keys), and Jacob Schaub(drums). The 'Tones have a natural energy that buoys the skin-tight musical arrangements into a thrilling live experience. They don't cut corners, they don't phone it in, and they deliver musical chops that leave you feeling good, not just impressed.
