A passion project formed by Jay Roecker and Corey McCurry. Members Only formed in January 2012. It began as an 80’s cover band but quickly morphed into a band of original music. The name comes from the widely popular jackets worn in the 1980s. It is also a tongue in cheek reference to the exclusivity of the band. Through the formation of the band several artists joined the group but never lasted long. Corey and Jay decided to leave the group as a two man singer-songwriter duo with keys. The aim was to build the music together with creativity and passion being the driving force behind our records.
Corey McCurry was born in 1989 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He earned his musical chops from intense piano instruction. In fact today he is a pianist for 2 churches in Greenville, TX. Corey continues his music education today in college in East Texas, while working as many hours as he can at the local Wal-Mart. Jay Roecker first met Corey through a mutual acquaintance who worked with Corey. After hearing Corey play, Jay knew he had to do what he could to try to get Corey some exposure.
Jay Roecker was born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona. One of four army siblings, he grew up in Fort Worth Texas where he spent his youth singing in church choirs, competitions and numerous musicals. After graduating from UNT in Denton, TX, Jay pursued a career as National Manager of Artist Partnerships for the Radio Disney Network, a part of the Walt Disney Company. In this role he coordinated numerous successful concert tours nationwide, developed new talent via Radio Disney’s Incubator (Now Called NBT- Next Big Thing) and acted as artist/label liaison for the network and stations. Some artists Jay promoted included Hilary Duff, The Jonas Brothers, Jesse McCartney and Miley Cirus.
Jay always had a vision to create his own band writing his own music. Members Only allows Jay the vehicle to use his skills in artist development to spotlight Corey McCurry’s talent and fulfill his dream to create and promote his own music. Together both Jay and Corey formed Members Only as a synergistic band of catchy pop tunes with new fresh lyrics and music by Jay Roecker and Corey McCurry. The writings are musing from life experience driven to speak to the commonality in all of us. Jay Roecker formed Roecker Records to distribute the new tracks. Their first single, “Bucket Full of Crazy” was released in February, 2013. All songs are recorded at Septien Entertainment Group, proving ground for such artists as Jessica Simpson, Ryan Cabrera, Nick Lachey, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato. The group is constantly recording and working on new videos. Stay tuned for more at http://membersonlymusic.com/!
