The Cooties Are...
Lead Guitar - Keys - Vocals
Equally comfortable playing keyboards, Wild Man really shines as lead guitar and harmony vocalist for the Cooties. His inventive and adaptive riffs make smooth work of every cut.
Decades of stage experience, an uncanny ear for tone, and a deep natural talent lend a cool authority to Bryan's axe playing. It's a real treat watching and listening to the Wild Man at work!
Drums - Vocals
Bass Guitar - Vocals
Tacker brings 4 decades of musical experience to the bass lines of the Cooties.
He always wanted to be a guitarist starting out but picked up bass skills to fill the shortage of bass players in his local area. Luckily for us, he took on that role and never looked back.
Widely known as one of the top bass players in the region, Tacker's musical background and true love has always been and will be ROCK, so he endeavors to incorporate that style in every song in some fashion.
He thrives on live playing and loves the visuals of live shows from staging to lights, smoke, fire, outfits, hair etc. growing up in the 60's & 70's definitely groomed him in the style that audiences appreciate.
Lead Vocals - Keys - Harps - Guitar
Cutting his musical teeth fronting and sitting in with acts in Seattle, Los Angeles, and his beloved home grounds of Southwest Louisiana, Coots really lives for the show.
This fool is so comfortable on stage, he usually grabs a nap in the cable-runs before the show.
Coots pulls frontman and keyboard duty with the Cooties, as well as bonus work on acoustic guitar, blues harmonica, and of course, cowbell.
Needs More Cowbell!!!
In Loving Memory of
Randy "Carlos Montana" Stewart
He lived it like he wanted, and rode off into the sunset with no regrets.
Rock on brother. We miss you every day.
