Root Hog
Root Hog Root Hog is a five piece band emerging from Lafayette,IN, developing their own sound while drawing on the rich tradition of American music styles. They are bringing a new sensation of American roots music for the ages giving their audience that “feel-good” vibe that tingles from the tip of your spine to your toes and slaps a smile on your face. By combining key elements of Rock, Blues, and Soul, Root Hog has made an original sound for music lovers everywhere. The band is currently working on new material that will be featured on their debut album to be released in late 2009. Aside from working on their album, Root Hog is developing a wide Midwest fanbase with a stern view towards constant performances, improvisation and the communication that can only happen with a live audience. Taking their name from the American catch phrase “Root Hog, or Die”, meaning that each man is responsible for his own survival, Root Hog has adopted the phrase while fending for their own spot to be heard through the thick forests of musical talent.
