Rossonian is a band of white boys named after a legendary black jazz club who don’t play jazz. In "On The Road,", Jack Kerouac wrote about the ‘lilac evening’ in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood where the century-old dilapidated hotel and lounge’s facade still sits today. He must have experienced the art deco sign flickering on in the twilight, signaling the approaching night and all the ‘…joy, kicks, darkness, music…’ that it would bring. Though the worn but still handsome sign hasn’t been lit in over half a century, the band with its namesake delivers the same blissful reminder of pleasure and darkness to come. Rossonian’s music is the thrill of anticipation as you prepare yourself for the ecstasy of heading out into the night. Alone or with a party, it is the haze of the early evening becoming more apparent by the darkening of the night sky and its contrast with the slowly protruding urban light. The glow that makes you wonder where you are and where you are going.
