Jackson Rohm
-Four On The Floor-
By Bob Silvestri

With his matinee idol good looks and a cache of bouncy up tempo tunes Jamestown native Jackson Rohm seems headed for the limelight. His new release Four On The Floor features radio ready songs not unlike our own Goo Goo Dolls and others in the pop rock format. The title refers to the musical term drummers’ use when playing a particular beat for a song. Rohm dedicates the CD to his longtime drummer Rod Welling who passed away in a car accident a couple of years ago. Welling often employed the four on the floor technique on Rohm’s songs. Highlights here are the Goo’s sounding “Be A Man”, the laid back sound of “Selfish Lover”, the Blues Traveler feel of “Ramona”, “Vanity” and the title cut “Four On The Floor”. Bonus points for the CD closer and catchy sing along “Your Wife Is Cheating On Both Of Us”. The sunshine melody belies the bawdy yet hilarious subject matter.
