Roots of Chaos is the band that comes from all different: places, backgrounds, ethnicity, ages and Points of View. With all that, there is that one unifying common banding bond of Rock & Roll music. We embrace our differences and use them all to add a bit of spice & variety to the music we create as a Band of Chaos!
We derive our name “Roots of Chaos” by combining the idea of the roots of Rock & Roll and the Chaos theory. The first part “Roots”, is our homage to the past Rock & Roll and “Chaos”, is how Rock & Roll has always been so ever changing and you can never nail it down. You might say Rock and Roll has had some great "Paradigm Shift's" in it's time. From the "Roots" like the early 50’s stuff (chuck and the gang), the and then going on to the great birth of blues rock, psychedelic, metal, progressive, punk etc.... Even some of the 80’s hair band shit was worth a listen to. Then branching out to Alternative, Ska, and even melding with Hip Hop. Oddly enough we think Twisted Sister actually nailed it with “You Can’t Stop Rock & Roll”! Or maybe you like AC~DC's take: "rock and roll ain't noise pollution, rock and roll ain't gonna Die!" It will survive!
And out of all that “Chaotic” randomness of rock there is that one commonality that brings us as fans to shows and bars, and as musicians to form bands (even if they are just to jam out with a few friends). For some it drives them, for others it inspires them. For the Root of Chaos, it brings us uncommon fellows together and unites us as brothers! It becomes a part of what and who we are as individuals. It unites us together as ONE when we perform. Wonder twin powers activate, Form of a BAND!
Is the band just an extension of our alter ego’s? Maybe it’s not quite that far out there (man/dude)! But one thing is for sure. We are having some serious fun!
