Cowjazz (v1.0) began on or about 1985 when Mark, Geoff and Herman met as part of a rotating cast of characters in the band Roulette. Shortly after, Michael appeared and then there were four. After experiments with The Master Gary on drums and a variety of bearded bassists, Cowjazz found bassman Knetsch and drum meister Brown. That means the current form of the band has been putting its art in cans since the early 90s supplemented by the vitamins of special guests such as ms Georgia Lister on vocals and Mr Chollie Burrus on keys. Other folks have been known to join us on stage if the drinks are a little too strong.
