The Roosterz are a band from Emmen, The Netherlands. They started off in 2008 as a bunch of friends playing together. Some of them were already playing reggae music, for some of them it was a new experience yet to discover. On the 22nd of January of this year The Roosterz presented their long-awaited EP "Get On Board". It's a nice six-track CD that was recorded in 2 weekends back in September 2010 at the "House Of Productions" studio in Rotterdam.

The band has a strong young feeling and a steady lead singer. After the intro comes a relaxed instrumental called The Rooster. Check out the song 24/7, an uptempo ska tune with some nice backing vocals, followed by the impressive roots tune Youth Rebels. The set ends with the instrumental O Galo, a tune built around a nice flute solo. The Roosterz definitely will be a band to see live!
