Root Hog’s sound can best be defined as ‘Cosmic Americana’, a term coined to represent key elements of American roots music forms and psychedelic rock & roll twisted together and packaged in a no-frills and honest manner. The band is dedicated to reviving live original music for everyone that can give their audiences that feel-good vibe that tingles from your head to your toes and brings a smile to your face.
Since the September 2009 release of the band’s eponymous debut album, the group has tirelessly played all over the region, and looks to do more of the same in the coming months. Getting in front of new faces as often as possible has helped earn Root Hog a growing Midwest fan base that will continue to grow with the band’s stern view towards constant performances, improvisation and the communication that can only happen with a live audience. “Work or Fail” is one interpretation of the phrase “Root Hog or Die”, which gave the band it’s name, that sums up the ethic and attitude that this Indiana group progresses under.
