The Rotary Prophets


"Reminiscent of bands like Paul Westerberg & The Replacements, Uncle Tupelo and other American Roots rock acts, the Prophets employ swirling keyboard lines, buzzing guitars and robust vocals that give their songs staying power."

-Metronome Magazine

"...some good old fashioned roots, rock, Americana power-pop...their five song EP called "faith • lost • love" is jam packed with American tales...Yee ha!"

The Rotary Prophets are a roots-rock band based in Somerville MA. Powered primarily by the evocative story songs and narratives of singer-songwriter John Maloney, along with song contributions from keyboardist Ted Collins and lead guitarist Damon Vrettos, the Rotary Prophets have quickly emerged as powerful and unique voice within the Boston music scene. The band's sound falls somewhere between the alt-country of Uncle Tupelo and the americana of The Band, yet strongly influenced by rockabilly, blues, power-pop and classic rock.

Featuring past and current members of the bands Monophonic, Lorntell, The Rationales, The Rapid Shave, Autumn Hollow, Dearborn Valley, Powderhouse, Up From The Sky and The Silver Lining, the Rotary Prophets first came together in the fall of 2012 and played its first gig at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge MA in January, 2013.
