Rockin’ Chair was formed in 2009 to perform music that originated in the Laurel Canyon Los Angeles area where musicians and songwriters collaborated to create great music in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Starting with Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds as foundation groups, members formed other partnerships that created great bands like Crosby, Stills Nash & Young, Poco, Loggins & Messina andThe Eagles. Others involved in creating this unique sound were Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, J.D Souther, Mama Cass Elliot and Dan Fogelberg. Rockin’ Chair features 11 musicians and covers all of the instrumentation and vocals to perform this music authentically.
In 2017, Rockin Chair played some of the premier venues in St. Louis including The Pageant, Delmar Hall, The Chesterfield Amphitheater, The Old Rock House and The Playhouse @ Westport Plaza. KSHE Radio selected Rockin’ Chair to perform at two of the station’s 50th Anniversary events.
