Got a nice blurb in this week’s issue of the Santa Cruz Weekly. Thanks to Matt Weir for the kind words. Check it out;
Coffis Brothers and The Mountain Men
Don Quixote’s; $10; 8pm
After their KPIG debut, The Coffis Brothers (Jamie and Kellen Coffis) and their backing band, The Mountain Men (Kyle Poppen, Mason Hutchinson and Henry Chadwick) have been a hot ticket in the Santa Cruz area with good reason. Born and raised in the misty hills of Ben Lomond, the Coffis Brothers mix a blend of folk, country and rock with the intensity of personal lyrics into a gritty and often tender harmony of sound. This Friday will mark the release of their first full-length album, The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men, at a show that delivers one part Avett Brothers and one part early Neil Young for a full night of dancing and fun.
Our record release show is next week on June 17th and good golly are we getting excited about it. We’re playing on our home turf in front of our lovely home crowd at Don Quixote’s in Felton, and we’re playing all night. We’re really proud of this record and we are looking forward to this show as a celebration of finishing it and being able to share it. Basically, it’s going to be a god damned good time.
Check out our poster designed by our friend Scott Krueger and we will see you at Don Q’s on the 17th!
Stay tuned this week as we will be receiving some coverage from different media outlets that we will be sharing with you as we promote our tails off in anticipation of releasing our first record.
And now the countdown can officially begin. We really hope to see you all on Friday June 17th.
In the meantime catch us at the 2011 R. Blitzer Gallery opening this Friday (June 3rd) and the Redwood Mountain Faire this Saturday (June 4th). We will be playing on Saturday at 1:30 on the Creekside Stage, see you there!
Less than 24 hours away from our first show at renowned Santa Cruz venue Moe’s Alley. Doors open at 8, My Stupid Brother opens the show. Later this week we’re headed to Club Fox in Redwood City to play a show with our friend Mike Annuzzi.
Here’s a first look at the cover art and track listing for “The Coffis Brothers & The Mountain Men.” Stay tuned as we will be releasing a single later this week. Head over to our facebook page to vote on which song it should be!
