Meet The Band

The Mighty Rooster in 2004

The Mighty Rooster in 2004

The MIGHTY ROOSTER are a fine bunch of chaps.... People ask…why Rooster?….We don’t know…!   Rock, folk, dance-rock and even, when they feel particularly cantankerous, reggae jostles for position in their varied sets. Their music is impossible to define, individual in style and yet strangely accessible……but who are these talented minstrels…?

Dean Creighton - Drummer extraordinaire. His driving rhythmic racket underpins the powerful MIGHTY ROOSTER sound. Never known to willingly talk too little, Dean is the confident heart of the band. In tandem with Simon, he makes a solid and tight rhythm section - the envy of many other outfits.

Steve Heath - Big man, big voice. He makes what he refers to as ’approximately musical noises’ on acoustic guitar, mandoline, bazouki and penny whistle, but it is the power and quality of that voice which is his major contribution to the inimitable MIGHTY ROOSTER sound.
 
Mike - Keyboards, Violin and Backing Vocals

Russ joined us in February of 2004 and immediately became a great favourite with the fans. His atmospheric guitar playing has revived many Mighty Rooster songs and his ability to pull out phenomenal rock solos at the drop of a hat leaves the crowd awestruck.
