Steve Wooley, a.k.a. "Animal" (and you'll know why when you watch him perform!) started playing drums at the tender age of 12. He's proficient in all types of music: Country, Dance, Wedding, Metal, Thrash, and 80's Rock is his favorite (yay for us!!). He's a bit of a mystery, but all you really need to know about Steve is: He was born, he plays drums like "animal" and he's fun !!

Founded: April 2013
Pete (full name Peter John Rivera) is the founding member of BedRock. He's toured up and down the East Coast and Southern states in the 80's and 90's with various bands such as Baby X, Thunder Alley, Wallstreet, and the Guns and Roses Tribute band Paradise City, and has opened up for such national acts as Warrant, Dream So Real, Night Ranger, and Sam Kinison who also sat in with his band. Pete stayed the longest in an Atlanta-based band called The Cosmic Gypsies (for over 15 years). In 2010, he left The Cosmic Gypsies to move to New York. Once in NY, Pete took a 3-year hiatus. He was extremely burned out and tired from gigging 2-3 nights a week, every week for years and the Rock & Roll lifestyle was taking a toll on his health. The time off was just what he needed. Once he was rested up and ready to start playing again, he had the drive and ambition to build BedRock, a popular, high-energy band that puts on an awesome stage show and kicks butt all over the Tri-State area!
