“Whiskey-Fueled, Home-Fried Rock and Roll”… that’s The Cheaters. Proudly hailing from the Mid-Atlantic, The Cheaters are set to take on the world by delivering their unique brand of in your face rock-n-roll with an attitude all their own. In only a few short years, The Cheaters have released two critically acclaimed CD’s, sold thousands of records, and played hundreds of shows throughout the U.S.A., not to mention successfully performing in Europe, Guam and Japan. The Cheaters have also shared the stage with such diverse national acts as ZZ Top, The Pretenders, Shooter Jennings, The Stray Cats, Ace Frehley, REO Speedwagon, The Wailers, and this past summer, were the opening act for Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd in Virginia. This is a band that has a little bit of something for everyone and any time The Cheaters play, you can bet they will leave the crowd wanting more. The Cheaters’ live performance is a non-stop barrage of the band’s energy, talent and showmanship that draws the crowd in, and won’t let them go until they break a sweat. The band’s most recent single, “Hey Hey Rock N’ Roll”, is a direct byproduct of the band’s raw power and musical talent. With each album this band gets better and better and every time you see them, The Cheaters’ live performance confirms what their fans already know, and the converted have just discovered; this is what rock and roll is supposed to be, and this is a band that’s here to stay.”
Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and MySpace. They stop in Pittsburgh Friday night at the Hard Rock touring behind their latest effort, “Midnight Run“, with support from The River’s Own.
