Colebrook RoadColebrook Road
A 5 piece string band that creates original music through banjo, mandolin, upright bass, guitar, dobro and fiddle – Colebrook Road achieves a 20th century sound through 21st century songs. Based out of Harrisburg Pennsylvania but performing all over the MidAtlantic region, Colebrook Road is an original band. Almost ninety percent of what they perform is from original compositions from within the band. The unique sound of the band comes from years studying music theory and bluegrass music in particular, while putting a modern spin on that old sound through original songwriting and arrangement of three and four part vocal harmony.

Ellwood’s Pub has since been one of Roosters favorite places to play on a regular basis. Playing throughout Western Pennsylvania, Midnight Rooster has become a fan favorite for festivals, private or corporate events or at your favorite watering hole.
