What happens when five diehard musicians meld into one band committed to getting you off your seat, onto your feet and out on the dancefloor? The Wilson Cooper Band that’s what!
The Wilson Cooper Band hail from the North Coast of NSW in the hills around Byron between Coopers Creek and Wilsons Creek hence the name. The music is the catalyst that bring this energetic five piece together. Wicked guitars move in and around your favourite rock covers. Throw in some serious drum and bass movement add a pinch of smooth 3 part harmonies, slide in some organic bits and you have a recipe for rhythm that makes you hungry for more. The music displays influences as diverse as Rolling Stones to Black Keys, T-Rex to the Easybeats, Cold Chisel to the Romantics….the band always delivers a high energy, in your face performance that punters love.
During 2015 the band have played many local gigs from the coastal pubs and clubs to the favourite Sunday session gigs in country venues. The band have rejigged their set list over the last few months to deliver 3 sets of all time faves.
Formed in 2013 when the players connected after frontman Gaz Lovell returned from 3 months in Canada – most of the members were part of the first Wilson Cooper Band that played around the far North Coast in the early 1990s. The guys have a rich musical past that include The Tenants, Richard Clapton, Nancy Vandal and Mal and The Longboarders to name a few.
