Mike Byrne & The Sunrockers are known as one of the top authentic rock ‘n’ roll bands on the circuit travelling all over the country to play the hits of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins and a whole lot more.

 

With a slap bass, piano, guitar and drums, the SUNROCKERS replicate the authentic 50’s sound for the numerous theatres, holiday parks and Rock n Roll clubs they perform at while Mike with his many years in cabaret and theatre can entertain any club audience

 

In recent years they have appeared with Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry at the Empire Liverpool

 

One reviewer said;

 

“ if you came to this concert looking for full-bloodied rock ‘n’ roll, then the first 45 minutes were the highlight of the evening when Liverpool’s Mike Byrne & the Sunrockers stormed their way through a superb set. With the bass player frenetically slapping the double bass, Jimmy the drummer beating out ‘Peggy Sue’ on an old drum case and Mike Byrne leading the band from the front as well as excelling on the piano. This was the closest the evening got to recreating the spirit of the 50’s”

 

In 2010 Mike performed a Jerry lee Lewis set with James Burton, Elvis’s guitarist. James said to Mike; “If Jerry Lee could sing as well as you he would have made more money”
