Rock out with your hawk out


COBRAHAWK is a rock & roll band known for driving guitar riffs, pounding drums, matched with raw, powerful vocal melodies. The band began in 2013, playing a multitude of cover tunes under the name of 'Walking Talking Stephen Hawking'. The name was changed to something more PR friendly, and the band began writing original music in the fall of 2014.

 After winning 88.1 The 'Burg KCWU's battle of the bands "Burgstock IV", COBRAHAWK was invited to play Chinook Fest 2016.  They brought down the house at the after party, with the largest crowd of the night.
