Think back to when you were a kid and it was game time. Peanut, JJ, Pookie and the rest of the gang were ready to put up or shut up out on the field. You always had your Ray-Ray or Joey out there talkin’ smack. They weren’t the best players on the court, but they made everybody laugh. Remember when the “new kid” on the block (nobody new his name quite yet) was your secret weapon (he had a serious slap shot!). The girls practiced their cheer leading moves while the boys tried to show their stuff. And of course there was the chunky kid who was your main lineman or had the deadliest jump shot (he always had the half time snacks and goodies). Rickie, who didn’t speak very good English, was always sure to hit the ball out the park. We played until the sun went home and we soon followed. It was fun.
It is with this same spirit that the Rockaz play and create their original music. Their intent to deliver the fun is at the roots of what they do. Comprised of folk from all four corners of Buffalo NY, The Rockaz music is a blend of Roots Reggae, Funk, Ska, Rockin’ Soul Dub, Hip Hop, and down home goodness. Their music has been described as “therapeutic” which coincidentally is one of the vibes that they try to generate. A sense of bringing together people of different walks of life is a reflection of who they genuinely are. The Rockaz demonstrate the advantages of cultural diversity through their cooperative efforts, creating original music for everyone.
The songs give listeners a rejuvenating experience. Bringing people of all walks of life together is what this band does best. The whole family can enjoy the positive vibrations of The Rockaz. The originality of their music is captivating, and unique, conveying messages of goodwill and a vibe that is “Irie Mon.” The Spirited personalities of The Rockaz music will get you boppin til you dance all night long. Come out and hear the Rockaz live. Bringing you original Buffalo music…
