Holy cow, 2014 was an eventful year! Curtis and Mush left, Robin Barrett stayed on guitar and vocals, Kit Kuhlmann stayed on bass, and we added Gordon Farr as our new drummer. With Robin fronting the band & Kit and Gordon laying down that rock solid Coyote groove, we've changed the name of the band to "Robin Barrett & Coyote Kings" and we're leaner, meaner, and just too downright sexy. Wait 'til you hear the new Kings' CD, "Howl," due out this Spring and catch our shows this coming Summer season!
Even in a transitional year, we played some great events, started work on the new album, and were honored to receive the Empire Awards for "Best Blues Band" and "Best Blues Guitarist" (Robin)! Stripping it down to a trio must have been the right thing to do.
Now looking forward, it's time to get ready to host our yearly party, The 4th annual Coyote Kings Invitational WALLA WALLA GUITAR FESTIVAL, this coming March 13 and 14. With 15 of our best friend bands coming to three venues in Downtown Walla Walla for the weekend, the town is gonna see a... yes... LARGE time! We'll post more on this soon.
We also have the new CD coming and many shows to tell you about... so stayed tuned & have a LARGE year!!!
