Andy Coats Update

The latests from Andy Coats

Hey folks, hope everyone is well!

I just got back from Memphis, where I played two very strong sets in the semi-finals and saw old friends from Iowa and Southern California. Thanks to everyone who came to hear me play at the Beale Street Tap Room – it was a lovely surprise to see so many folks from the Central Iowa Blues Society, and I’m thrilled that they are still going so strong in Des Moines.

I wasn’t able to advance, but still had a cool experience. The performer who advanced from my group, Lionel Young, was the eventual winner of the entire competition (solo/duo), so I was definitely in good company!

It’s great to be back in NC, and we’re going to crank things up this week with the band:

This is a new venue for us, but word has it that it’s quite classy and has a good sound system.

So, come on out and let’s have some fun!
