We are a Rock n' roll band named after our home town area in Wayland Michigan. Our music is similar to that of a modern day version of Journey.
Rocker Lips
Rocker Lips
Rocker Lips has been performing in Kansas City and surrounding areas for 2 and a half years. A triumvirate, Rocker Lips consists of:

Matt Rumans - Guitar/Lead Vocals

Andy Cantrell - Bass/Vocals

Chris Richards - Drums/Vocals.

Together they deliver a hard-hitting, high energy brand of rock and roll with an intensity that has been lacking from music in recent years.

With the release of their self-titled EP in August 2008, Rocker Lips has been receiving air play in numerous cities as well as several independent radio stations and internet radio broadcasts.

The band has also shared the stage with many established national acts including L.A. GUNS, Nigel Dupree, Sex Slaves, American Dog, The Start, Lions, White Witch Canyon, SuperGiant, Black Gasoline, The Effects, The Mellismatics, The Lonely H, and Benjamin Del Shreve to name a few.

Recently Rocker Lips has been recording their full length album wich will be available early 2010.

Influences: Mostly free beer, long hair, shredded vocal chords, and high voltage feedback! With sex, smoke filled rooms, territorial pissings, poor diet, bass fuzz, bright lights and screaming fans!

We don't play loud so you can hear the music. We play loud so you can feel it!
"The man responsible for Crush is Tommy Gardner, someone best known for his work in the ascending Beach Fossils. According to my research he's got exactly seven tracks to his name, which conforms to an EP of meshed happenstance. The songs drift into one another like a collection that sounds cobbled together for the sake of a release – not that that's a bad thing, in fact I rather appreciate the honesty. The straightforwardness is appreciated, sure it could be more ambitious but Gardner's craft isn't really something that should be swinging for the fences. Instead it did a really good job removing 21 minutes from a 10 hour flight – which is exactly what I was asking of it.

Crush was conceived in direct emotion, the tracks have simple titles and simpler explanations; 'Too Tired To Fight' is about when the on-and-off routine starts to feel really silly and 'I Look Good' tributes the fleeting boost of confidence rewarded when you like what you see in the mirror. Of course then there's the fuzzy mess 'For You' and the unattached smudginess of 'Everything to Lose' – neither of which inspire much and end the EP on a nasty downwards slump. These are not the greatest artifacts of the beach-pop manifesto, in fact I probably wouldn't even give them third place, but I would say they're seductively hard to hate. I can't confirm the relevance of Crush, or vouch for a productive future, but I can say that this little 7-inch will make you happy – and for 5 dollars, that's a bargain. Stream it in full below."
