What sets the Coyote Kings apart from other Blues and Bluesrock bands out there?
First and foremost incredible hook-oriented songs that still retain the heart and soul of Blues and Roots. The kind you’re still humming when you get home from the show.
Not one, but two jaw-dropping guitarists, burning up the stage like a Northwest wildfire.
Built around a world-class drummer, the backbone of these Bluesrock animals, movin’ and groovin’ everyone near enough to feel it.
And… A thundering, rock-solid bass, that makes each Coyote Kings song register a 9.4 on the Richter scale.
You think the CD is hot, wait till you see them live!
