Blast-Off for Kicksville
Hailing from the outskirts of Philadelphia, Officer Roseland has been protecting and serving rock music since 2000. Comprised of Dan Daidone (bass/vocals), Brian Jones (keyboards/guitar), Harry Grannis (bass/guitar) and John Ilisco Jr (drums/percussion), this fearlessly experimental band is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of rock into bold new directions, drawing their influence from such eclectic sources of inspiration as Mr. Bungle, Talking Heads, Rush, Frank Zappa, Ween, NoMeansNo, and the Beatles. Fusing everything from funk, punk, new-wave, hardcore, jazz, soul and country with their own uniquely twisted sense of humor, OR has developed an aggressive and original sound desperately needed in an increasingly generic musical landscape. Rock and roll is in a state of emergency. In order to survive it must evolve. Officer Roseland is a band on a mission- to rescue rock from the evil clutches of corporate hijackers and the assembly line of soulless mass production. The airwaves have the right to remain silent no longer. Help is on the way.
