THE MAKING OF ROAD CREW

Rock’s Iconic musicians

“ Rock 4 Rocco “ & “The Baby Rocco Foundation.”
www.babyroccofoundation.com 


2 1/2 year old Baby Rocco Cangemi was hit & killed in front of his families vacation home on Long Island , New York on labor day weekend September 2, 2017 by a speeding distracted driver in a posted 5 mile an hour speed zone. 


Soon after the tragedy Rocco’s Dad  Guitarist Joey “Jem” Cangemi assembled “Rocco’s Road Crew”  putting together musicians & volunteers to spread the word of the foundations work and created the  Event now known as  “ Rock 4 Rocco." 

 

The first Rock 4 Rocco event in June of 2018 which Joey Jem performed on the big stage for  the first time in 20 years to honor the memory of his son Baby Rocco  raised an astounding
$ 6,800.00 in 4 hours. 


After that event Joe decided to write & record an album of original music dedicated to his son Baby Rocco.   He reached out to long time friend & Keyboard player Nick Troiani to discuss the project.  Next step was to find the perfect front man, vocalist & lyricist to collaborate with on the material.   Joe knew exactly what he wanted spiritually as well as vocally.  A mutual friend put him in touch with Don Chaffin of Voices of Extreme & from the first note Rocco’s “Road  Crew” the band was created.

 

They immediately began collaborating on Demo’s for the album.   The thought of a Bass player & Drummer for the project was never discussed.  Joe already had the players picked in his  mind.   He worked briefly with Rod Morgenstein back in 2004 & reached out to him to ask him for his help on the project.   At the same time a good friend Joey Ragz had recently worked with Billy Sheehan on a project called Madam Mayhem.   Joe reached out personally to Billy & he was more than happy to help out with the project & the foundation. 


On January 4, 2019 history was made when Billy Sheehan & Rod Morgenstein recorded together for the first time on Road Crew’s debut album named “Side A” which includes a modern day  remake of Zeppelins Rock N Roll  highlighting each musicians individual talents. 


 
For Rocco’s dad ,  The meaning  of  “Long Live Rock “    reaches above &  beyond the music.  


With the help of  Billy & Rod’s selfless contribution "The Baby Rocco Foundation"  has raised

$ 58,000.00 since its inception as well as other events  raising another reported $ 60,000.00 . 


When asked about the future of “ROAD CREW”  as a band.  Founder & Lead guitarist  Joey Jem Cangemi stated-  "Every one involved with Road Crew & the Baby Rocco Foundation has inherently become part of the Baby Rocco family.   We are all going to do what ever it takes to keep his Memory  & “Rock” alive !"

Joe also added ——

“ I am pretty sure if we get called to do the 1/2 time show at the Super Bowl .... Billy & Rod will be there ! “  

ROAD CREW - Remaking Zeppelin's Rock N Roll

The inspiration to remake Rock N Roll was directly attributed to a  comment by Adam Levine which later was supported on the Howard Stern Show  by Howard himself about Rock Music Being Dead.     Although the comment was not meant to degrade Rock N Roll music or musicians, it did hit a nerve with  Lead Guitarist  Joey Jem an admitted long time fan of The Howard Stern show .    What better way to have the Worlds Best Rock N Roll Bass player Billy Sheehan  & Drummer   Rod Morgenstein record the song to prove that Rock Music  is as strong as ever.  Road Crew recorded Rock N Roll keeping it true to its original format giving it a modern sound keeping Rock & Roll alive for all future generations to enjoy .  

ROAD CREW - Touring & Recording

 Billy Sheehan & Rod Morgenstein have graciously taken the time out of their extensive recording & touring careers to bring awareness to the  fundamental values of The Baby Rocco Foundation.  They Continue to be a part of helping the foundation raise money through their generosity of time, talent & celebrity status.    Road Crew is putting the finishing touches on their debut album "Side A".  As of April 29 , 2019,  The First single Rock N Roll has been released on all Major Platforms  including I Tunes & Amazon Music.   Due to each members relentless working schedule, No Official Tour dates have been announced  for 2019 -

JORDAN CANNATA

Jordan Cannata has a long history behind a drum set that was molded by his relentless passion for music, drumming, and an unwavering thirst to expand upon his knowledge and abilities. Growing up in a family of music lovers, it wasn't surprising when Jordan and his brother Jared quickly developed an interest in music. At the age of 8, his parents bought him a guitar because his brother wanted one and they didn't want Jordan to feel left out. However, Jordan showed no interest in it, opting to bang on things with chopsticks rather than play his guitar. Realizing this, his parents bought him his first drum set and Jordan has been making noise ever since.

JORDAN ON TOUR

Jordan and his brother Jared co-founded their band J.Rad. With J.Rad, Jordan has recorded 3 albums and shared the stage with many great artists such as Twisted Sister, Living Colour, Filter, Joe Bonamassa, Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Scott Stapp (Creed), Bret Michaels (Poison), Mountain, Johnny Winter, Gilby Clarke (Guns n Roses), Blue Oyster Cult, Asia, Saliva, Yngwie Malmsteen, Styper, LA Guns, Rick Derringer, Otherwise, Gemini Syndrome, Zach Myers (Shinedown), Saving Abel, Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf), and many others.

In 2017, Jordan joined the ranks of Century Media Records/Sony Music Entertainment artists, Adrenaline Mob (a position formerly held by both Mike Portnoy and AJ Pero). Jordan was introduced as the new drummer for Adrenaline Mob with a drum solo video that received over 2.5 million views and is still climbing. Jordan’s debut album with Adrenaline Mob titled “We The People” was released in the summer of 2017. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes Metal Chart, and #15 on the iTunes Rock Chart, and was supported by a US headline tour.

Unfortunately, the tour ended in tragedy. A truck driver fell asleep behind the wheel and struck the band’s bus, injuring the entire band and crew, and killing bassist David Z and tour manager Janet Rains. After this accident, Adrenaline Mob dis-banded and everyone needed time to heal.

After several months of recovery, Jordan was asked to form a new band which is now known as Stereo Satellite which features Jordan, his brother Jared Cannata on guitar, singer Lukas Rossi (Rockstar Supernova), and bassist Erik Leonhardt (Tantric). In less than a year, Stereo Satellite had opened for Bon Jovi, played the Shiprocked Cruise alongside bands such as Stone Sour, In This Moment, Seether, P.O.D., and Black Label Society, and has had multiple songs get mainstream New York radio play. The band’s debut album is being released later this summer and will be followed by supporting tours.

   In 2018, Jordan also joined the ranks of two more bands; Sugarmore, a group of musicians with a mixture of rock and theatrical backgrounds who create pop-fusion versions of modern hits, as well as the band Voices of Extreme. Sugarmore’s focus is creating video content, and has garnered 75,000 views with their first two videos. With Voices of Extreme, Jordan spent portions of 2018 touring the US opening for Tesla and will be continuing to tour as well as record new music throughout the year.
