Band Biography img1 Blair Jones along with Mick and Steve Adkins are the core members of the band. Founded in 1994 as a side project from their various cover bands, the past 13 years has seen the Rogue Sharks sound develop into something of an eclectic rock style ranging from metal to hard rock to punk! When Steve was recruited in 1998 he brought to the band his skills as a producer and songwriter as well as his artistic flair for album cover and sleeve designs. The band has just released their first full length self-titled album in March 2007. The first single "Let Me Go" was released in October of 2005.

Back in 1994 Mick and Blair recorded their first E.P "Lock Jaw" at Apollo Studios in Perth, Western Australia. Mark Donohue was at the helm in the control room when they recorded the songs 'Lock Jaw', 'The Rattler' and their tribute to the legendary singer, Bon Scott, 'Bon Fire". At the time Mick was playing lead guitar in the Perth based AC/DC tribute band AB/CD and also worked with Blair in the cover band 'Live and Dangerous' doing mini tours of country and coastal areas of W.A.
On the rare weekend when the band wasn't playing, Mick and Blair would get together to write songs and record demos with a view to eventual professional recording and release.

In late 1996 Mick moved to Tassie and played the covers circuit with various bands and in the process attempting to save enough money to record another EP.
During the next couple of years Mick and Steve recorded demos and sent the CDs across the country to WA so that Blair could write the lyrics to their music.

In 2004 Mick, Steve and Blair took the plunge and mortgaged their homes to finance the recording of a full length album of their original Rogue Sharks songs.
After some changes in musical direction, the boys finally released the album in Australia in March 2007.
In September 2007 Rogue Sharks celebrated the album's world-wide digital release through their distributor AMPHEAD Australia.

The Rogue Sharks sound is best described as heavy guitar based power rock ranging from blues based grooves to flat-out heavy metal with a new millennium edge.

Mick chose the band name from a chapter in the book '"SHARK DOWN UNDER" by Alan Sharpe (The Book Company - 1993) detailing rogue shark theories.
