You can get a CD of originals and hear versions of Country Rock and Rockabilly which Rock by the way thinks is great.
Everyone's welcome from linedancers to rock n rollers to cowboys to just plain foot tappers. The more the merrier.
Rock himself has participated in the dance scene learning the steps to understand the viewpoint of those on the floor.
Since the age of 12 when he attended a 13th birthday party and refused to leave unless his mother bought his friends guitar, Rock has had a passion for playing and performing. No I tell a lie. He used to dance and sing to the Beatles when he was knee high though his voice is too raunchy for those numbers now.
Rock has played all sorts of music but has finally found his niche with writing and recording his own Rockabilly and Country Rock. It’s wild it’s fast and designed to dance to. Rock has peformed from German oom pa pa to rock n roll to 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and everything in between. Six piece bands down to solo.
His Rockabilly is being played at numerous community stations throughout Australia and he has written jingles for stations such as 2CCC at Gosford and Huon FM 95.3 in Geeveston Tasmania. The Rock n Roll crowd through Dance schools and DJ’s have been enjoying the sounds of Rock Rogers. A night with Rock will consist of anything from Rock n Roll, Rockabilly, Ruffabilly, Country Rock, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and best of all if you are brave enough “BAND KARAOKE”.
Bye Bye Baby So Long
Wind him up and let him go just be sure to unplug him when you want to go home. Oh and don’t leave an acoustic guitar laying around because he just doesn’t know when to quit.
"Be ready for some serious partying"
Once upon a time around August 1998 I think? Roxine (Maxine the wife) said "Record it and see what it turns out like" talking about the song NOT 16. We did, and we were happy with the outcome and presented it to some of the dance schools on the Central Coast, New South Wales Australia and we ended up with a good reception. (The wife is actually the girlie voice on the song not me). I decided I would write and record more of my own material I call Ruffabilly.
Basically it is uptempo dance tunes with rockabilly riffs and a slightly distorted sound to give it more substance. The tunes were road tested in the studio by actually dancing to the beat to check it was just right. We got a good rhythm going with recording sessions and started to churn songs out quickly one after the other. A couple of ballads were thrown in and "High School Sweetheart" became a very popular song packing the dance floor everytime with husbands and boyfriends singing into their partners ears. The girls just loved it.
I basically get a riff I like and add words that are simple and flow so anyone listening can learn them quick. Once the guitar track is done twice to fatten it up and with a drum track for timing the lead licks come in with the bass last to lock the whole song together and then vocals. Rock has created this site to share his songs to the public. (More narration to come.)
