Hey Everybody, Whew! It's a hot time in the land of Coyote Kings! Been a while since we wrote, but that just means we have a LARGE amount of news for you... First off, we want to thank Paul Carter for laying down the groove on bass with us. It was short but sweet. Best of luck with your new ventures. THANKS PAUL! And now... *Queue trumpets* Coyote Kings are proud to announce our new bassist Don Sumpter. Donny is best known as the bass player and band leader for The Polecats, 3 time Muddy Award nominees and Pacific Northwest favorites. Donny ROCKS THE BASS and we're absolutely stoked to have him! The Kings are now bigger, badder, and bolder than ever. Welcome to the pack, Donny! Now on to news highlights... The summer started in May with an amazing day at The Untapped Blues & Brews Festival in Tri-Cities, WA. Great music, great micro brews, and GREAT PEOPLE... SO MUCH FUN! Dave Nichols knows how to throw a party and we had an absolute ball! Thanks Dave! Last weekend was The Ritzville Rhythm & Blues Festival in Ritzville, WA. We played in The Pastime there and it was... how shall I put it... HOT & SWEATY and another great party with friends old and new. Steve McFadden is the man behind this great festival and he did an AMAZING job! GO STEVE! And what will we be up to the second half of the summer? Well... here's our schedule through Sept...
