Rota is a reggae/rock/hip hop influenced six-piece band hailing out of St. Louis Missouri. The band is comprised of Adam Belko on vocals, Tony Barcinas on percussion, Jeff Hanewinkel on bass, Zack Reckamp on guitar and Jeff Kelly on drums. Formed in 2009, their run was short lived, but they returned in 2018 with an improved lineup and fresh material. Since returning to the music scene, Rota has released six songs. Each is an interesting mix of reggae and rock. The two most recent singles are “Shake And Roll” and “Helluva Daze.” Both tunes build on the syncopated sounds and beat of reggae with sections and instrument sounds that bring in the rock elements. Belko’s voice is able to blend the styles in a convincing manner. Both tracks say bring the party, ya mon!
Shake and Roll
Both “Shake And Roll” and “Helluva Daze” have song forms that develop melodic ideas through various feels, building interest over time and providing a solid listening experience.
