Calgary rock band ROOKS hits the legendary King Eddy stage for a night of rock ‘n’ roll revival.


ROOKS is a three-piece rock band from Calgary. The band features Jay Bowcott on guitar and vocals, Darryl Swart on drums, and Brent Rossall on bass. Their sound is unapologetic guitar rock, drawing influences from bands like Thin Lizzy, the Rolling Stones, and the Black Keys.

Originally called Bowcott and the New World, the band are established members of the Canadian music scene. After a whirlwind year touring western and central Canada, the band headed back into the studio in October 2019 to record their debut full length album which coincided with their name change. “From day one I was uncomfortable with my name being in the band name, so Brent suggested the name ROOKS and it immediately stuck. It has a personal meaning to us and some great imagery which inspired the sound on the new album,” says Jay.

Their full-length album The High Road is available now.
