The History of Mighty Rooster.

Introducing THE MIGHTY ROOSTER, a five piece band whose musicianship and professionalism have turned them into a favourite live act. Their blend of rock, folk, progressive and dance-rock influences is completely unique and impossible to define. Musical excellence combined with powerful vocals and a refined melodic taste allow THE MIGHTY ROOSTER to stand out from the hordes.

In the dark and distant mists of time, "Rooster" (not yet mighty!)were born from the ashes of some truly awful bands. Initially thinking that they would tread the boards as a covers band, the group gradually decided that it was much more fun to write their own material. Getting through keyboard players like Spinal Tap disposed of drummers the band eventually evolved to the strange genre straddling beast that you see today.
