The Rook ‘Ont Sofa’

This fantastic unplugged performance by The Rook. The ‘Ont Sofa‘ sessions are getting very popular Enjoy this performance…

Prelude | Original composition by The Rook

You guy’s could really turn this inside out. It’s a short intro, but boy is it superb…

My favorite version…

And a good half hour at ‘The Roscoe’ Leeds, starting with that there song, a brilliant gig.

Ch ch changes and great stuff’s…

At the 2014 Galtres Parkland festival, well it was – IMHO, that ‘The Rook‘ would win the AMP awards grand final, boy it seemed they smashed it! Over at the R and B festival in Colne, well I couldn’t stop thinking that important time of day; the Sunday at 15:00 hrs! Then a little later I felt so very emotional and happy upon Jacob’s phone call. Super impressed guys and so mega chuffed. Not only are the lower steps now climbed, indeed you can knock it very far, jeez…

Tune in and hear some of the best original music to come out of Yorkshire in a very long time. The best music to eventually come out of the UK for a long time is certainly on the cards…

The Cockpit 22nd November 2013

What a show, all acts were good, yet we were certainly blown away with just how much ‘The Rook’ have come on in just a year, an absolutely brilliant show being the main support act to the Vendettas EP launch, with some very flash playing! These guys have what it takes, all own original songs, very well wrote, average age is just 19, get yourselves to see them at the earliest possible chance!
