The Michael Roach Band, eight musicians dedicated to the soulful sound of rhythm and blues. Michael Roach, originally from Washington D.C. and now resident in the UK for the past thirteen years, is an internationally acclaimed country blues artist, with a voice like warm molasses and a winning personality to match. After eighteen months of rehearsing and writing songs, Michael teamed up to form a band with keyboardist Danny McCormack and saxophonist Paul Corry, resulting in the debut release, ‘I Betcha!’ in 2006. Powerful songwriting and a big band sound prominently featuring McCormack’s Hammond organ, a three-piece brass section and the sweet guitar sound of George ‘Jackie’ Lee make the Michael Roach Band an experience to savour.
