A few years ago Rollie Hruza was looking for a rhythm section to back up his good friend Larry Mitchell. Knowing Steve Sisson well, he was an obvious choice for keys. Rollie met drummer David Haberman through work. The three clicked in their work with Larry and decided to start a band together. Realizing the need for vocal support Steve mentioned his cousin Madisyn Danforth. She graciously accepted the invite. In learning tunes they discovered the band Dirty Honey and worked up a cover of their tune Rollin7s. The group took the name and Rollin7s band was born!
The group has already worked in the studio together supporting recordings of two of Rollie’s originals and will be returning later in 2021 to record a Rollin7s EP.
