ROLLOVER is a band deeply rooted in the blues and classic Guitar driven rock. They toured the country extensively in the 90’s when the band’s first record broke on Chicago’s 93.1 WXRT-radio. Their song “Shipwreck” was the break-out single. Rollover was the first Chicago Rock Band to be signed by the legendary Bill Graham Management (Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Neville Brothers, Joe Satriani, etc.).
Over the years ROLLOVER has toured with and supported Top Rock acts like The Allman Brothers Band, Joe Satriani, Sheryl Crow, Blues Traveler, The Neville Brothers, Dave Mason, Los Lobos, Jimmy Vaughan, Buddy Miles, John Hiatt, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, Hot Tuna, Eddie Money, Foghat, Atlanta Rythym Section, Dick Dale, Sonny Landereth, Savoy Brown, Earl King, Gatemouth Brown and many others.
Rollover loves and has been influenced by the music of Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Tom Petty and other classic bands and artists. His sound is described as “roots rock meets the blues”.
In 1995, Louie’s song “Shipwreck” was featured on A&M Records “H.O.R.D.E. CD Sampler”. They were constantly on the road, sometimes spending months traveling from L.A to New York and back again. This gave the band a chance to really develop their sound and tighten up their already exciting live shows. The band did many tour dates supporting Joe Satriani and performed with him in the U.K for a month of sold out shows in 1996. Upon returning to the states the band did two more sold-out nights with Joe at the famous Fillmore in San Francisco.
Rollover songs have been used for TV shows (CBS’s The Rachael Ray Show, Nash Bridges, Spelling Productions etc.) and movies (Lost and Confused). For the last 18 years, he has been writing songs with Roy Marinell. Roy co- wrote “Werewolves of London”, “Excitable Boy”, other hits with the late great Warren Zevon. Roy also recently co-wrote “All Summer Long” with Kid Rock. Rollover’s Louie Zagoras produced all of the ROLLOVER CDs as well as the new “Twenty Fingers” solo CD. After three nationally distributed CDs and countless tours with ROLLOVER, Louie has released his first solo CD, “Twenty Fingers” on Isis Records. Produced by Louie and The Herron Brothers, it features top Chicago musicians Jay Davenport on Drums and former Black Crowes/Jimmy Page bassist Greg Rzab. Joe Satriani says “Twenty Fingers” is a joy to listen to.”
