Quick facts about Rooney
Rooney is a rock band which formed in Los Angeles, California, United States in 1999. The band consists of Robert Schwartzman (vocals, guitar), Louie Stephens (keyboards), Taylor Locke (guitar, vocals), Brandon Schwartzel (bass) and Ned Brower (drums). Schwartzman is the brother of actor and musician Jason Schwartzman. The band has released three albums - “Rooney” (2003), “Calling the World” (2007) and “Eureka” (2010) - and is named after Dean of Students Ed Rooney, from the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Their music is reminiscent of British Invasion rock and 1980s pop, and has been compared to The Beatles, The Cars, Jellyfish and Blur. They have toured the nation with acts such as Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson, Weezer, The Strokes, Tally Hall, The All-American Rejects, and The Academy Is… Rooney’s official website states that the band “manages to capture elements from the past four decades and make them sound modern today.” Early history
Rooney first formed as Ed Rooney back in 1999. The original line up consisted of Teddy Briggs on drums and Matt Star on guitar. Ned Brower replaced Briggs as drummer, Matt Star left, and Louie Stephens was added as keyboardist. They released a series of independent EPs called Deli Meats (2000), Plug It In (2001), and Mastedonia (2002). Somehow, they accomplished all of this without ever signing to an Independent Label. The band played multiple shows a month around LA and Anaheim and built up a strong following. Schwartzman moved to NYC to attend the Eugene Lang College at the New School. Learn more about Rooney
