DeRoK & The RoLLeRs - i L3V3L Experienc3 / Bio

Season 5 Sundays June 28th - Sept 13 2015 KoLyfe Art Creation
Over 150 originals and more new songs coming...Cheers and thanks for listening

The i L3V3L Experienc3™ show is all about the bringing together of people and getting experienced and expressing ideas through creativity of music or art. With the help of some close friends, Taetoe (Terry), DigiCrunk (Brad), and AndyMon (Andy), we have grown over the years. After growing up in the 70's and learning from and listening to my pop play guitar, make music and have fun with his friends, the desire to carry on in that sharing of laughter and good times, has always been a fuel for me. It started back in the early 80s after my teen years when a neighbour of mine was in a band called The Shivers, now called The Geoff Masse Band. Well, the show they did when they closed The Barn Tavern, where he leapt off stage playing guitar and rocked out one door of the building out to the passing traffic on Highbury and back through the other door, that was enough to keep me wanting to create music.

So much fun and so many smiles from everyone it was great. That kind of joy and fun is what I want to bring to everyone. Performing locally in the 90s at various events as just DeRoK, along with Taetoe we would come up with new songs on the fly all the time, Street Punks, Makin' My Way Through Life, and Headline News to name but a few. With the addition of DigiCrunk, aka Brad Boylan, in the mid 2000's, came the push to put something online. So with the help of the local pawn shops and some recording software, my basement and PC became DRnR Studios, and in December of 2007 gave birth to The i L3V3L Experienc3™ movement and my first release, a 3 song ep titled "A New State of Being" available on Myspace, Bandcamp and here with Loop 2 Loop, I Don't Think So and Treetown 519.

With the addition of AndyMon came a few live performances for friends. In the summer of 2010 thanks to Andy’s Kolyfe Art Creation booth at the Sunday Art Show, we starting playing for the public at The Covent Garden Market and had a blast, DeRoK, Andy, Tim and special guest appearances by Brad and Terry, Andrew and others. Our performance during the Car Free Festival at The Met in 2011, featured new songs not available online. We spent the summer of 2012 performing mainly at KoLyfe when they closed the Sunday on the Square events.
With the exception of a few shows at Hoops House Bar and our Summer Special at The London Music Club, Seasons 3 and 4 were held exclusively at KoLyfe Art Creation.

2014 & 2015 has seen more special guest performers at our shows and Michele, who has become a regular "RoLLeR". Welcome to our crazy world.

Live on the floor recordings weekly by DRnR Studios.
