Rock and roll swagger returns to the 21st Century as The Mighty Others look to expand their following beyond their hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota. Their roots-driven rock is influenced by The Black Crowes, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Petty, and Aerosmith, giving them a flavor that mixes well into a tasty rock and roll pie. Since relocating back to St. Paul from Nashville, Tennessee the band has retooled, adding new members, writing new songs, and preparing for the release of a new EP.
The key to The Mighty Others is that the band picks up where the true meaning of rock and roll left off somewhere between the sixties and the digital revolution. At one time rock and roll was a fever that took people on a magic carpet ride. The groove and the inspiring lyrics led the world into a realm of free expression and unrestrained art in which creativity, not calculated formulas, moved society. The Mighty Others revive that ethic with authenticity and captivating musicianship.
“We’re hitting the scene and trying to shake things up and provide a little of that vintage rock and roll flavor that music today seems to be missing,” frontman Jeff Wenberg says as The Mighty Others plan to start touring regionally then “get out on the road and just go for broke.” Regardless of the directions the music industry has taken in recent years, it is clear that the public craves the retro sound. The writing is indeed on the wall that rock and roll will never die – at least not in our lifetimes. The Mighty Others are here to keep that spirit alive.
