Bio

A passion project formed by Jay Roecker, working in collaboration with Christi Rodriguez and Remington Rafael. Members Only formed in January 2012. It began as an 80’s cover band but quickly morphed into a band of original music. The name comes from the widely popular jackets worn in the 1980s. It is also a tongue in cheek reference to the exclusivity of the band. Through the formation of the band several artists joined the group but never lasted long. Jay decided to maintain the project working in collaboration with Remington Rafael. The aim was to build the music with creativity and passion being the driving force behind the records. Remington Rafael is a masterful producer, choreographer, musician, singer and writer.  He has collaborated with multiple top-tier artists and spearheads Septien Entertainment Group's audio production.  His solo work can be previewed at http://remingtonrafael.com.
The team would take turns coming up with melodies.  For the first album, Most lyrics were written by Jay Roecker, while the music was mostly written by Corey McCurry, who was born in 1989 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The second forthcoming album will be a collaboration between Remington, Christi and Jay.
Christi Rodriguez hails from Fort Worth, Texas  She puts the funk in funky town with her soulful vocals and guitar.  She sings in a few local chorus groups.  Her addition to the team added some much needed spice and female appeal.
Jay Roecker was born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona. One of four army siblings, he grew up in Fort Worth Texas where he spent his youth singing in church choirs, competitions and numerous musicals. After graduating from UNT in Denton, TX, Jay pursued a career as National Manager of Artist Partnerships for the Radio Disney Network, a part of the Walt Disney Company. In this role he coordinated numerous successful concert tours nationwide, developed new talent via Radio Disney’s Incubator (Now Called NBT- Next Big Thing) and acted as artist/label liaison for the network and stations. Some artists Jay promoted included Hilary Duff, The Jonas Brothers, Jesse McCartney and Miley Cirus.
Jay always had a vision to create his own band writing his own music. Members Only allows Jay the vehicle to use his skills in artist development to spotlight new talent and fulfill his dream to create and promote his own music. Remington is a master at artist development in his own right.  Members Only was formed as a synergistic band of catchy pop tunes with new fresh lyrics and music. The writings are musing from life experience driven to speak to the commonality in all of us. Jay Roecker formed Roecker Records to distribute the new tracks. Their first single, “Bucket Full of Crazy” was released in February, 2013, followed by "You and Me" in June and "Thoughts of You" in July. Their first music video "Bucket Full of Crazy" released August 1st, 2013.  All songs are recorded at Septien Entertainment Group, proving ground for such artists as Jessica Simpson, Ryan Cabrera, Nick Lachey, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. The group is constantly recording and working on new videos. Stay tuned for more at http://membersonlymusic.com!

June is Busting Out All Over 

May brought a lot of changes to Members Only. We completed recording all vocals for our upcoming album "Labor Of Love" and had some personnel changes also. We bid adieu to Corey McCorey so he could focus on his church work and music education while welcoming back up vocalist and guitarust Christ Rodriguez. June 22nd we shoot our album images with the amazingly talented Jay Fuertez. His work may be previewed at http://www.jayfuertez.com/ The album cover will be mechanical poetry with heart. Stay tuned and thank you for your support....

SXSW Feedback 

We had a great gig, got to see and perform along side some amazing artists at Coast 2 Coast's event at SXSW. We performed to a crowd of 500 people and some notable producer and industry insiders said the following; "the vocals sound good and catchy. Reminds me of Sublime but more modern. You definitely should go for licensing opportunities. If you have more universal sounding tracks like this, you have a lot of options-- they are universally appealing" and "actually your music sounds like it could be commercial, so that's where the big money is." Looking forward to more events!
