Rocky Business

Building a reputation as a must-see band on New York's Lower East Side, Rocky Business is certainly a breath of fresh air. Headed by frontman/emcee Strictly Business and guitarist/producer Jonny On The Rocks, Rocky Business brings together a diverse range of sounds, ranging from Hip Hop to Indie Rock. Both members come from very different backgrounds; Jonny is a Toronto native, while Strictly Business hails from Bed-Stuy Brooklyn. The two first met when Jonny was engineering a studio session for SB in early 2009. While recording SB's tracks, Jonny took an interest in his style, further collaborating artistically, starting a partnership that would become Rocky Business. Since then, Rocky Business has hit the stage with artists such as Diplo, GhostFace Killah, Redman, Rick Ross, HEARTSREVOLUTION, Hey Champ, Theophilus London, Maluca, Ninjasonik, Anton Glamb and Death Set. Rocky Business has made a name for itself in NYC's underground nightlife. Playing at major music venues to dance clubs to illegal loft parties, Rocky Business has also played many festivals such as Northside, SXSW CMJ and events in Europe as well. Most recently, "Army Of Love" and "Find Away," both from their debut EP, shot to the top of Hypemachine charts. Rocky Business' debut EP, A Rebel's Roar, drops March 22nd on FrankRadio/Babygrande Records.
