BLUES ROCK + AMERICANA FUNK NIGHT
13/7/2024

El Coyote are a combination of dusty, soul-touching blues rock and
melancholic Americana folk. Storming out of the gates with a rich,
vintage sound, seasoned with astounding guitars and organs pulled
together by a tight, groove inducing rhythm section and fronted by a
singer who sounds like he was pulled straight out of the house band in
Hell’s dive bar.
This dynamic ensemble have carved out a niche for themselves with
their raw, impassioned performances and a sound that pays homage to
the legends while pushing the boundaries of the genre. Comprised of
seasoned musicians with a shared love for authentic, gritty music, El
Coyote delivers a sonic experience that's as powerful as it is
unforgettable.
