Jazz-pop love song with images of Hawaiian Islands Oahu, Maui and Kauai/copyright 2006

is now available at: rooneytunesmusic.com
as well as CDBaby.com, iTunes.com, napster.com,
and many other online digital stores.

Hi, my name is Michael Rooney and my band is
Rooney Tunes. I write and sing my music, play piano, keyboards and synthesizers, trombone, flute, recorder, percussion,
and anything else I can pull off.
I use some excellent session players also when needed,(the're friends too), usually a drummer, bass player and saxaphone, or whatever a paticular song calls for.
It's great fun, enjoy.
Why this name?
That's obvious!
Do you play live?
I play live in a big band on lead trombone and some flute solo, and I perform the Rooney Tunes whenever and wherever I can; usually in informal settings like the nearest piano!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
It depends...
Your influences?
I have influences from many places: big band music like Maynard Ferguson; much classical music; as well as various musicians and genres like: Steely Dan, James Taylor, Gino Vannelli, Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheney, Billy Joel, Seal, Michael Franks, Boz Scaggs, Kenny Loggins, Styx, Dan Fogelberg, Frank Zappa, and many, many others...
Favorite spot?
I have been many places and love to travel.
I've been on a Hawaii kick lately and have been to Oahu and Kauai islands. Maui's next!
Equipment used:
I am a bit of a purist in that I like to use natural instruments as much as possible,(at least on this CD). Music played directly by people has a soulfullness about it since there is a human spirit connected and running through the instrument; and you can feel that in the music.
I use grand piano, a real drummer,(we record the basic tracks live in the studio with no overdubbing), and real instuments like trombone, flute, trumpet, saxaphone, recorder, vocals, etc. Some synthesizer here and there.
I also have a "less is more" philosophy to my production.
Anything else...?
My new cd was released October 12th, 2006.
