Rockburn

details
"Classic Rock N' Roll with a 21st Century twist"

Rockburn was born out of the frustration of seeing a lack of bands having the balls to play 'all out' Rock N' Roll.

With a foundation of Booming, Bluesy beats and Punchy, Rhythmic bass playing combined with monstrous guitar riffs and "Great raspy vocals" the band are able to continually write hard hitting catchy Rock N' Roll songs which has seen them described as "A breath of fresh air".

The band from Bellshill, Scotland has a line up which includes Stephen Baxter Vocals, Gary Dudgeon Guitars, Chris Rodgers Bass and Christo Lambrou Drums. With songs based on Love, Life and Drinking, complete with memorable riffs and "Totally Infectious" sing along chorus's fans keep enjoying and praising both Rockburn's self-released Lp's and live shows and keep coming back for more.

As well as playing festivals across the country, Gigging hard off there own backs, Supporting larger acts they have also toured with signed bands including Wishbone Ash and The Drella's (Ft Ex-Space front man Tommy Scott).
