TheChickenYard is an Americana-Rock band from Western Massachusetts.  Members of TheChickenYard have been entertaining audiences of all ages since the 80’s. TheChickenYard hatched in 2011 to perform a catalog of music spanning from roots-rock originals written by frontman Paul Sticca, and a flock of covers of classic and modern roots-rock, country and blues. 

TheChickenYard brings its own alternative, yet familiar, energy and sound to the stage and is currently promoting its second full-length album “Long Time Running” (2014) while recording their next album to be released in 2016. TheChickenYard is heavily influence by many of the artists that the band covers live, such as Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones. 

TheChickenYard is working on its next full-length album (title to be announced), which is scheduled for release this summer.  For those who have asked and are waiting patiently, here's a little taste of two new tracks the band's 2017 album release "Sevens"!!  "Wrong Dirt Road" - TheChickenYard "Sevens" - TheChickenYard  "Baby Anyways" - TheChickenYard.
