Koobi Fora / Bio

Koobi Fora creates Psychedelic Funk-Rock with a hint of country blues twang to create an immersive and provocative sound while bring an original point of view to every piece of music we play. Founded in early 2013 in San Francisco, Koobi Fora is the jazzy organ stylings of Taylor Garland, the shredding guitar lickery of Jackson Haddad, the thunderous pop and slappings of John Dering, and the tight groove pockets and cymbal flourishes of Dan McGivern.

In just a year, Koobi Fora has shared the stage with noted musicians such as Willie Waldman of SNOOP DOG, Norwood Fisher of FISHBONE, Ike Stubblefield of Stevie Wonder/Jerry Garcia Band/Eric Clapton, and many more at venues like The Boom Boom Room in San Francisco and the House of Blues in Hollywood. ‘In the Beginning’, Koobi Fora’s debut EP is available for free stream and download at www.KoobiForaBand.com and they are currently working on releasing their first album due in late 2014.
