The Coates Brothers Band / Press

“This band took the stage and held the crowd till the nights end. I saw The Coates Brothers Band play 3 years ago. Man! What a difference! They found a new drummer who accents everything they do -- from slow to fast. If I closed my eyes I would think he was Neil Pert from Rush playing. Man-- This Band Rocks. Mike Santilla Gulf Coast Magazine.”

“The Mississippi Coast Coliseum is where it all happens, rain or shine! When not sampling, come try your hand at fun games such as corn-hole and ping pong, or attend a session at the Brew University Education Area where you will enjoy beer seminars such as Cooking with Beer, Food Pairings, Brewing 101 and other beer education sessions. Rock along with the Coates Brothers Band, a five-piece high-energy original Southern Rock band. You’ll revel at the vocal perfection and harmony of these two brothers who pride themselves in being total indies in the music business!”

“With so many bands climbing the ladder to be in the top ten-- The Coates Brothers Band has an incredible and exhilarating sound. New indie music combines many great sounds that only two brothers, Mike and larry Coates can reproduce. I predict great things for this band.”

“The Coates Brothers Band released their first album "Mississippi Hippi" July 27th 2013 through CD Baby Distributors. The band compiled 10 songs relating to Indie, Southern Rock and Blues. We wish the Brothers the best on their endever to create great Rock music!”

“Mike Coates Has been a blessing to our cause as he has hosted so many Benefits for our Charity Foundation . He has always been willing to lend a hand. His band The Coates Brothers has volunteered many times to help raise money.”
