Sorry for the blog silence.  I've been in Riverside with our families over spring break. After Riverside my family headed back to Longmont but I flew to Redding. Last night The Rooster Party hosted a show at the Old City Hall where we have thrown so many great shows in the past. Currently I'm sitting in the Starbucks on Cypress st. in Redding CA typing this blog. It's completely remodeled and looks totally different.  So many things ...

This is Real Talk Monday, because I can't wait till Tuesday. Here's the chorus to the latest song I've written. "If you’re gonna rock the boat, you better know how to float. Cause your gonna find your ass at sea, and out there things aren’t pretty." I've come to the place where I'm over writing songs that are safe.  I feel like the truth is helping me get to a place. Here's a free bit of advice... There are the risks that ...

Follow Friday – Chris Molitor

Posted on March 14, 2014

Everyone that has followed The Rooster Party from the beginning knows that Chris has been a big part of our community.  He was the first e.p. that we funded and played at some of our very first events.  Chris and his wife Lauren recently moved to L.A. and if you miss seeing him live you can see him here.  Go purchase a ticket and you can stream live to see his show down in Austin at SXSW. If you haven't yet, go follow Chris here. Like ...

Today I'll just leave you with the lyrics to the most recent song I've written.  A majority of the song was written by my buddy Aaron Wardle.  It was really fun to collaborate with a friend in the creative process. I hope it brings a little hope your way on hump day. The Healing is Coming Mercy’s rising got darkness on the run Like the sunrise over the mountains The light has come New sounds are climbing got despair on the ...

Stop it with the vacuum cleaners…I will punch you!

Posted on March 10, 2014

If any of you know my history with vacuum salesmen...you will find this amusing. I had another one come to the door yesterday.  He starts with handing me a packet of kleenex...who does that? He says its a gift and I'm already annoyed.  Then he asks me if I've ever heard of a Sentria.  I say no and he starts running to his car as I start to realize the trap I've fallen into.  I yell at him...hey...hey...HEYYYYY!!!!  He acts like he ...

Today is Monday which means it’s Merch Madness here at The Rooster Party.  Today I want to introduce you to the Jonn and Brie Dilley.  Check out their video here. Every few weeks we pick a new person or project that is committed to hope and we give a percentage of our proceeds from every product sold on our online store to this project.  We have shirts, music, beanies, scarfs, cowls, and jewelry on our store now and we are adding new ...

Go to his bandcamp page here and click "buy now."  You can enter $0.00 and have ...

Loneliness – When you lose your team

Posted on March 6, 2014

Sorry for the blog silence.  I'd give some excuses but to be honest, I just didn't want to.  I don't know if you're anything like me but I get fatigued by social media.  I like to contribute to it but when I'm the sole source of content it feels exhausting.  That's why you'll start to see posts from some of my friends and people connected to projects show up on my blog.  I'd love for you to hear from them as well.  Plus I'm trying to build ...

{Guest post on Hope for Hump Day by Mike and Holly Rodriguez} Through the end of the month The Rooster Party is giving a percentage of proceeds from every purchase on our store to support Mike and Holly as they are in the process of adopting a sibling set from Haiti. How do most feel when they first wake up? Groggy? Slightly sore? In need of a strong cup of coffee? We definitely feel all of the above. It would be great if we sprung out ...

Happy Hump Day Roosters!  You made it to the middle of the week.  It's time for a little hope. I thought we could do something a little different today on Hope for Hump Day.  Seeing that yesterday The Rooster Party celebrated it's 3 year anniversary from the run that started it all, I thought we should take the day to hear stories from all of you.  Sometimes all it takes is a good look back to see how far you've come to give you a little ...
