““The Roosters” is how Rian B. and his band refer to themselves. They are an L.A. reggae band that plays roots music and carry an island sound, with some members being from Hawaii. The Roosters consist of seven members with three guitarists, including Rian B, the vocalist on one, a female backup singer, a bass man, keyboard player, and drummer. The keys were enjoyable with a sound resembling gospel-rock, and one of the guitarists busting really good solos. One of their songs which really stuck out was a version of Gregory Isaac’s “Night Nurse,” . Some of their music was a bit soulful too, which included a song that said, “Gimme Your Love.” Most of their music spoke of life, love, and the struggle. A song called, “Revolution,” featured a guest singer, and got good feedback from the crowd. The Roosters had a lot of supporters in the place, with some fans asking for an encore at the end.”
