Rocky Bottom

Rocky Bottom is a harmonica blowing, foot stomping, moon howling, string breaking, story telling, one man show who needs nothing more than a suitcase and a stage.
With a stiff cocktail of folk, country and rocknroll, Rocky Bottom takes the roots of these elements and brews them together, reminding anyone who has forgotten, where it all came from. From the swamps of Jersey to The Big Apple to The Sunshine State to Music City it has been a long road with no end in sight.
It all started in a number of bands from 2005-2008 in the north New Jersey Punk Scene. In 07′ a band called Bad Town formed with a more roots approach, Incorporating a harmonica and adding acoustic guitars. They would go to play for the next four years including a relocation to NYC.
After Bad Town separated In 11′ Rocky Bottom hit the road and wound up in South Florida scrounging for gigs around the beach areas. Eventually residential gigs would come in to play and places such as the infamous Elbo Room would become home. Making enough to sustain but lacking a true music scene another move was in the near future. Nashville, TN was beginning to look like the next stop on the train. Now with a perfected sound and an arsenal of songs, Rocky Bottom is set to make a mark for all to see.
