About

Bio Download

Mellencougar is made up of a group of musicians from the Illinois/Wisconsin scene. Our appreciation of the music of Heartland U.S.A. and specifically John Cougar Mellencamp helped to create our band and gain the respect of many venues, fans and musicians.

The shared experiences described in John’s lyrics bring the audience and band together while singing songs about youthful lust in songs like “Hurt So Good”, “Ain’t Even Done With The Night” and “I Need A Lover”
In songs such as “Check It Out”, “Small Town” and “Jack and Diane” you are reminded of what is truly important in life and how to recognize it.

As the fiddle cries and the bass drum hits, patriotic songs like “ROCK in the U.S.A.”, “Rain on The Scarecrow” and “Pink Houses” drive you to dancing as you raise your glass to toast the greatest country on earth, the United States of America.

Mellencougar has shared the stage with Eddie Money, Blake Shelton, the Spin Doctors, Styx, Night Ranger, Jamey Johnson and many other national acts. We are available as a headliner or an amazing opener for your festival act.

Celebrity Guests: Toby Myers, Moe Z M.D.
