The Michael Roach Band

About The Michael Roach Band Introducing the Michael Roach Band, eight musicians dedicated to the soulful sound of rhythm and blues. After eighteen months of rehearsing and writing songs, blues singer/guitarist Michael Roach teamed up to form a band with keyboardist Danny McCormack and saxophonist, Paul Corry. The result of this collaboration was the debut release of ‘I Betcha!’ in the autumn of 2006.

 


As a featured vocalist on Bernie Marsden’s (former guitar player and songwriter for the rock band ’Whitesnake’) ‘Big Boy Blue’ album in 2002, Michael developed confidence in his ability to front a band as a singer from the experience of touring with the ‘who’s who’ of British rock and roll. During the ’American Festival of the Blues’ tour in the United Kingdom in 2003, Michael met the talented Danny McCormack and Paul Corry. This led to the trio’s pact to rehearse and write new music throughout the years 2004/05.
In the end, they recorded fourteen tracks with three covers (one by Curtis Mayfield, ‘People Get Ready’, one by Bobby Bland, ‘I Pity the Fool’ and another by Hank Ballard, ‘Let’s Go, Let’s Go, Let’s Go’). From the southern soulful sound of ‘I Betcha!’ to the big band sound of ‘Baby No, No, No’, this album has it all. Above all, the Michael Roach Band is full of energy and is a true crowd pleaser.
It has been a natural transition for Michael to go from his years as an acoustic performer to leading a big band, creating the resonance of the music that he grew up with.
