Founded in 2012 at Lafayette College, Easton Pa's Hoochie Coochie Men are well seasoned for such a short stint together, they started playing blues which eventually evolved into a sound incorporating a blend of blues, folk and rock.The band has recently gained steam after finishing a 40-show summer tour of the northeast, including a stop at Jazz Up July in Stamford, CT where they directly opened for the legendary B.B. King. The 8-time Grammy winning composer, Paul Winter has said their sound is a “fresh and inspiring take on American roots music". They have also shared the stage with national acts such as Badfish, Pete Francis of Dispatch, Matt Costa and Toy Soldiers.
The Hoochie Coochie Men have recently been featured on various outlets like Vents Magazine, Paper Blog, and This is Book’s Music. HearHear Music applauded the band’s last cover-mashup of Etta James and John Lennon “I’d Rather Go Blind Don’t Let Me Down” saying that the song “manages to build upon both without sacrificing what made both songs classics in their own right. This is what keeps me writing about music, listening to music, dreaming about music.”
