Roustabout Survivors
Roustabout Survivors
The Roustabouts were formed in New York, 1980 by Gary Setzer upon his departure from the post punk, avant–garde group the “Bloodless Pharaohs”. Together with Lee Tobia, Stu Newman, Bill Tello and Ero Lippold they quickly rose up on the New York music scene.

In the 1980’s thorough several line up changes, including Tommy Dee, Rich Landar, Tom Curiano, Dale Powers and Steve Leighton, The Roustabouts were one of New York’s hottest live acts headlining all the major venues in the city as well as performing as the opening act for such groups as the B52’s, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dave Edmunds, Robert Gordon, The Blasters, etc.

With their blend of American Roots Music and Rock ‘n’ Roll, they traveled to Europe in the late 1980’s and delighted European audiences well into the 1990’s with their energetic performances and stage presence. At this time Neal Hooper and Hugh Caroll shared lead vocals as well as Gary Setzer rejoining.

The group with its varying line-ups has been an American Roots Rock ‘n’ Roll institution for over 35 years now.

Roustabout Survivors continue to carry on that tradition. This reunion of the original line-up from the album “Alive in Atlantis” will be an unforgettable night of Roots music performed by some of the originators of Rawk and Roll! Come and Get Rousted!

Roustabout Survivors are:
“Mister” Neal Hooper, Lead Vocals and White Trash Blues Harp
Tommy “Boom Boom” Dee, Bass Guitar and Vocals
“The Notorious” Dale Powers, Guitar and Vocals
“Crazy” Louie Maiello, Drums and things
“Loud” Lee Tobia, Guitar and Vocals (RIP)"
