THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE
A recently formed 4-piece alternative rock band setting out to do something different. Inspired largely by Radiohead but intent on carving out their own path in the industry, Plato is made up of George Butler on vocals and rhythm guitar, Jordan van der Westhuizen on lead guitar, Callum Crooke on bass and Robbie French on drums.
From the deepest roots of Manchester, Born Rogue base their sound on real rock, revisited and refreshed, anthemic songs coming from the heart, honest and straight, singing day to day tales about what’s going on out in the streets. Catchy choruses that will stick to your head, they only want to see you dance from the first minute until the concert ends. We Are Born Rogue. Rock, That’s What We Do.
