Cootie Brown (band) - History


Originally formed by Brian Eckert (guitar) in 2003, along with Phil Gardner (drums) and Brian Stumpf (bass), the trio wrote a dozen songs and performed locally. The trio disbanded in early 2004 and remained inactive until Eckert moved to bass guitar and reformed the band with all new members. The only tie between the original trio and the new members, other than Eckert, was a song called "Dakota" that Stumpf & Eckert wrote together in 2003. In November 2005, Ryan Alford (guitar) joined Eckert and the two began writing new songs. Jacob Haqq-Misra (percussion) joined in January 2006, Jim DeVoss (drums) in April. The four played locally and kept writing original material throughout the summer of 2006. In August of that year, Matt Fern (guitar) and Michael Fortunato (woodwinds) joined the group. In October, Jordan Thomspon (keys) responded to an ad placed in a local music store, and the group then completed its current lineup.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man’s right to his body, or woman’s right to her soul.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    English history is all about men liking their fathers, and American history is all about men hating their fathers and trying to burn down everything they ever did.
    Malcolm Bradbury (b. 1932)
