The Rooks are a band of musicians who met at Wesleyan University around 2010. Their R&B/Soul-influenced Indie-pop sound is earning them fans across the country. Their recent tour has them playing at Smoke Signals in Lake Placid August 1 & 2. Last week Joel Hurd spoke to three members of the band, Garth Taylor, Graham Richman and Spencer Hattendorf, via Skype from a hotel room in Chicago.
