“I recently had the chance to see The Coco Butter band in Kansas City at Knuckleheads Saloon. They were the opening act for Trampled Under Foot. TUF was having their album release party and the new album was debuting No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Charts. The Crowd was a buzz, ready to see their hometown hero’s. Not a invariable spot for a opening act, but after a song or two the Coco Butter Band had that crowd eating out of their hand, including me. Their fresh approach to funk, blues and soul was not only refreshing it was spellbinding. I have since had the opportunity to listen to their new EP, it not only captures their magnificent voices and musicianship it also captures their charisma. If you are looking for a great act for your club, party or festival do yourself and your crowd a favor and book these guys! They will be a mainstay on my radio show. I’m a fan! If I can answer any questions please feel free to contact me.”

Q: of course, being a bass player, i'm super curious why you don't have one.... you sound great, don't get me wrong, but i'd love to hear more low end funkyness! jen:)
A: Hi Jen! Thanks for the kind words and the question, it's a good one! Liam and I love playing with various musicians including bass players, guitarists, horns, etc, but at the core we love writing and performing as a duo. It's a challenging, risky and thrilling experience to perform this way. It's like nothing we've done before and we're fans of shaking things up and being unique! As far as the low end funkyness, Liam's left hand is holdin' it down and we got some new equipment that really helps bring out that low end sound even more.
