The Cheaters are four hard rocking and hard partying musicians hailing from the Baltimore\Annapolis area. Their sound has been described as “Whiskey-fueled, home-fried rock ‘n roll” – a combination of classic and southern rock, played with a modern edge.
The lineup features four songwriters, with all band members contributing to the writing process. Brett and Jason cut their teeth in the Baltimore local music scene for years with Kevin Shook behind the kit and Dave Wolf playing bass. Now with Scott providing the low-end and Brian on percussion, the undeniable chemistry of The Cheaters continues to be evident at their live shows.
Recently, the band played alongside such national acts as ZZ Top, Bret Michaels, The Pretenders, The Stray Cats, REO Speedwagon, Lez Zeppelin, The Wailers, and Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers. The band has played everywhere from dive bars, to some of the largest clubs in the Mid-Atlantic, and even 15,000 seat arenas. The band has already gained a reputation as a hard working band, by playing over 100 shows a year since their inception. Whatever the venue, The Cheaters’ live performance is a non-stop showcase of the band’s energy and showmanship that draws the crowd in, and commands their full attention.
The Cheaters have also successfully managed to transfer their live energy onto c.d. “The Cheaters L.P.” was recorded in the Spring of 2006 with Frank Marchand at Waterford Digital Studios, and showcases songwriting from all four members of the band. The album was also released to a sell-out crowd at The 8X10 Club in Baltimore, MD. While primarily a rock album, the tracks contain enough hooks to appeal to all listeners.
With the release of their sophomore effort “Midnight Run” the band took things to a new level. “50 minutes of high energy Southern-Infused Rock. From dirty guitars to swagger-filled choruses, The Cheaters have found a formula that makes them more than worthy to have shared the stage with some of the largest names to grace the Southern Rock genre.” (Chris Brach, Rocksposure.com) Now that they are working on a third album and still booking shows throughout the year, The Cheaters are set to make their mark on the music industry
