Billy Magnussen & Reserved For Rondee Talk Band Beginnings

Billy Magnussen & Reserved For Rondee Talk Band BeginningsBroadway and Hollywood breakout star Billy Magnussen joins with bandmates Trevor Vaughn, Nick Fokas, Tom Degnan and Warren Hemenway to discuss the roots of their rock band Reserved For Rondee as well as play a special set as part of a new video featurette.

"So, they had to name the band in one night before they played," Vaughn relates in the new clip.

"It was Game 2 of the World Series and we had to quickly find the name of the band - we went back and forth for a while," Degnan shares of the unique story for how they got their moniker.

"Trevor - you can't teach what he does onstage," Magnussen says of the lead singer.

"He conducts the room - he conducts everything. It's unbelievable. He has a power to him, an energy - you just want to eat it up," Magnussen concludes.

Regarding their new album, Magnussen succinctly relates, "I feel so lucky."

Of note, Reserved For Rondee recently performed at BroadwayWorld's THE LORD & THE MASTER: BROADWAYWORLD.COM SINGS ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER & STEPHEN SONDHEIM. More information is available here.
