Biography

The highway… you know, that striped concrete abomination between roadkill and chugged beer bottles, leading from the middle of nowhere to everywhere…

Well, The Cooters are on it.

They’re not from California, they’re not from New York City, not even from Nashville or Portland… but they’re from Mississippi, where you have to drive to make ends meet.

The Cooters run the gamut of RocknRoll styles; playing everything from Punk to Metal to straight up High Octane RocknRoll, and they’re making pit stops at all points in between.

They’ve got your standard rock trio format… Newt Cooter on bass & vocals, Raw Cooter on guitars & vocals, and Judas Cooter on drums, but there’s not a damn thing else standard about ‘em.

The Cooters make music like it’s meant to be heard: loud and proud with blood and sweat to burn.

The Cooters have been touring the country and rocking hard over the last twenty years, letting the musical fads come and go replica rolex watches, while stickin’ to their metal guns and holdin’ fast to their punk roots.

They’ve got legions of fans to show for it and they’re always up for makin’ new ones.
