TVD Video Premiere: ROAR!, “Stone Cold Lover”

Since streamlining their act from a trio to a duo, trombonist/ vocalist/ loop artist Carly Meyers and drummer/ loop artist/ programmer Adam Gertner, who record and perform as ROAR!, have been busy in the studio creating their newest phantasmagoric production. We’re pleased to premiere their latest video.

The learning curve has been steep for the musicians. Gertner started programming keyboards, bass, and percussion loops into his sampler and then learned how to play live drums while queuing all the samples. The duo decided to split the bass playing responsibilities, so Meyers learned how to play MOOG Taurus bass pedals while playing trombone.

They have created a fun musical playground where Meyers switches back and forth between vocals, trombone, marimba, and pedals while fronting the band. Gertner wails on the drums while manipulating his effects. The video was recorded live in the studio to give fans, curious music lovers, and future fans of the live show a peek at what they do on stage every night.

To see it live, with considerably more jumping around and dancing both on and off stage, check out the “big-unique-fearless-sonic-love monster of a party,” which ROAR! is hosting at the Hi-Ho Lounge on Thursday, April 28th at 9PM.

The opener (love this band name) is Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend, a sonic drone metal band featuring Meyers and Gertner with saxophonist maniac Skerik. Hometown indie-rock heroes, Caddywhompus, will take the middle slot and ROAR! will close out the night.

ROAR! is also playing May 12, 2016 at the Saenger in Hattiesburg, MS and May 21 back in New Orleans at the Mid City Bayou Boogaloo.
