The Roasters were formed on a challenge to perform at a friends pig “Roast” in the summer of 2002. The then nameless band formed by Jeff Worthington and former Tom T. Hall guitarist Jack Miller met the challenge. The friend promptly named the group “The Roasters”, which still stands today. The band covers today’s hot country songs, yesterday’s hot country songs and some old rock-n-roll that would fit well in today’s widened country genre.

The Roasters have worked hard at growing and perfecting their craft in the 18 plus years since their first gig. The Roasters have settled in at six members who come together to bring a rockin’ sound that has something for everyone. Each member of the band grew up absorbing a rather diverse musical diet and those varied influences have helped shape the full-bodied sound that defines The Roasters musical persona. The two original members are Jeff Worthington on acoustic and the Cincinnati legend, "The Vic" on bass. Singers Kari Smith and Peachy Bell are talented vocalists with a passion for singing. Last but certainly not least is veteran drummer/singer Warren Miller and veteran lead guitarist Neal Mindrum. The band has a combined 75 years of experience in the music business……..and it shows!
