Andy Coats Update

Hey folks,

I hope everyone is doing well ….. I wanted to give you all a heads up on some upcoming shows and also announce a change in personnel.

It gives me great pleasure to introduce Matt Jenkins, who is the new drummer for the Bank Walkers. Matt’s been playing the drums since he was 10 years old, and has played in numerous bands during his career. He and I met each other after my set at John Dee’s birthday bash in April, and have already played several gigs together. Matt lives with his family in Durham, NC, having moved from Ohio several years ago. Welcome Matt!

Dan Stahl has moved on to pursue other projects and interests, but we’re all still on good terms and wish him the best.

Charlie Foote and Alex Little remain full-fledged Bank Walkers, playing guitar and bass, respectively.

Now, for the show info:

Friday, June 5, 7 - 10 pm

As always, thanks for your support!
