Endless Summer Ends

The Koozies have spent the "Summer Of Sweat" meeting all kinds of great people from all corners of this beautiful country. The shows have been a lot of fun. Making connections outside of the northwest has been great, but the best thing by far has been all of the amazing people we have met. We are lucky that our labor of love brings us in constant contact with so many new and interesting faces. Were done touring for now and look forward to spending the winter working on a new set of songs that will eventually become our fourth album. We do still have a few shows booked between now and the New Year so if ya can, come out and shake yer shit with us. Cheers to all of the bad ass folks we met this summer. we cant wait to re-unite. Keep It Cool.

In a nutshell

Ben Wheeler Texas, Lee's Summit Missouri, Indianapolis Ind, Chicago Ill, Des Monies Iowa and DENVER CO . We WILL be back!!!!!!

Broken Windshields and Cabo Wabo

Landed safe in Lees Summit Mo. where we met 5 of the craziest band of fools. They call themselves The Universe contest. Love at first sight. Went through a bunch of tequilla and 21 pitchers of beer. They played amazing. Went with 'em to St Louis on tuesday. More tequilla. Cases of beer bought from a store that sold "skittles" out of the back. Got nuts. Someone jumped through our windshield. No windshield. Hangovers suck!

lovin' the road

the last couple shows have filled our pockets and rejuvinated our spirits. We have made a whole family of new friends. Tonight we have a world class pedal steel sitting in with us. Dobro player last night. playin out under the hot texas moon. The whole damn town came out last night. Thank You Texas!

Austin is ROCK AND Roll

f*#@k Lubbock Texas. What a dump. but Denton Texas was beautiful. Tonight we rock Austin. This place feels like home. We plan to leave our stain in the hot sun of Austin. Road worn and weary.

Hittin the highway

The long hot summer of sweat continues. Hittin' the road. Thanks to the fans at the Wow Hall for the great send off. We will miss you Eugene.
