Bio: RoarShark has been delivering wave-crashing, treble-soaked, reverb-drenched Instrumental Surf to the fine people of Rochester, NY since 2010. Calling Monty's Krown our "Home Bar" we've built a large and loyal following. Have reverb, will travel! ...just don't expect us to sing.
We're number 9 on the ReverbNation Alternative charts for Rochester, NY. W00t W00t! http://www.reverbnation.com/roarshark
“Just replace the ink from a Rorschach test with some saltwater, and visualize surfboards and sharks and sandy beaches instead of the imagined, tell-tale images of hidden psychosis and genitalia, and you've got RoarShark. Or better still, assemble four Rochester rock 'n' rollers into a tight, guitar-driven onslaught. Then add volume, liberal amounts of reverb, a strong back beat, and sit back and watch the aforementioned genitalia (backsides, anyway) boogie to the twang-centric rhythm of crashing waves. RoarShark has played excellent surf rock with a sci-fi, exotic-lounge undertow and a splash of mystical whimsy since it first washed ashore in 2010. Live, it's a no-bullshit affair. Sure, there are fezzes and loud Hawaiian shits, but for the most part it's just guitarists Brian Gemme and Josh Reiner, bassist Neil Bourke, and drummer Gary Yanni, and a few cheap TV sets piled on stage to paint the picture amidst the quartet's modest Fender tweed back line.”
