Rooney is a five-piece rock band hailing from Los Angeles whose music is reminiscent of artists spanning from the '60s to the present day. Although the group has a distinctive style, its sound has been compared to everything from The Beatles to The Cars to Blur. Having toured the nation with acts such as Weezer and The Strokes, Rooney manages to capture elements from the past four decades and make them sound modern today. When the Dallas symphonic pop group The Polyphonic Spree takes to the stage, its two dozen members are decked out in flowing white robes, which make an appropriate backdrop for an uplifting musical message of catchy pop minimally laced by gospel. In addition to air-walking rhythms, ringing hooks, sincere vocals and contagious choruses, the Redwalls possessed the fresh looks and spirit of a group not yet jaded by music-industry convention.
