The Rocking Chairs is a group of 50-ish (we'll never tell) rock and rollers who grew up listening to and playing music during the British Invasion of the 60's and 70's. In 2004, we decided to form a band 'just for fun' to celebrate our similar musical backgrounds and tastes in music. To poke a little fun at our advancing years, we decided to call ourselves 'The Rocking Chairs'. Our musical influences include the classic rock of The Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Creedence, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Cream. So, the four friends came together to jam and share our love for classic rock. Over the next year we met four more times, learning a few new tunes at each meeting. What started out as a 'one time jam session' soon became a 'full-time ob-session'. Spread across the country, we had to find a way to keep the band in sync during the long months between sessions. We decided to do live recordings of each song so that we could rehearse when seperated. The songs on this CD, with the addition of a very few guitar overdubs and minimal post-processing, are the result of those recordings. The recordings are RAW, but with punch. But, almost everyone (not just people who love us) who has listened to the songs has said they hear 'something' worth sharing. Just after this CD was released, the band returned from a tour of Liverpool and Mathew Street and The Cavern Club. This CD was what got us the gigs. This CD of 'Raw' materials is dedicated to everyone who has provided us with the support and encouragement to keep moving forward over the past year. A mini-wave has begun with European rock and blues radio stations asking for permission to play RAW on their airwaves. A huge band from Liverpool, KAPPA, has asked The Rocking Chairs to open for them at various gigs across England and we are jointly working on a tour of various USA sites together.
