Last chance to catch Coyote Love live in NYC this summer!
We are playing a bunch out of town this summer but we are only doing one NYC show while we work on new arrangements and finish these blues recordings. Saturday night at 78 Below. And we want you to see it!
We are out to impress you with our musical prowess, and we are out to impress the management with the huge throng of people crowding in to see us! So come on down!!! Best venue to see us in New York.
Leslie’s got the place is done up real nice, the sound is off the hook, there’s food and great drinks all night and we play for no cover at all.
Sat July 13th
78th and Columbus
Current Round of PR Pics, Chosen By You Guys
Thanks so much to you who weighed in your opinions about our PR Pics shot by the lovely Jane Stein. Based on the responses we got, we are going to use this as the #1 pic for now –

And this one as the follow up pic –

Like everything else regarding our blues album, we didn’t strike gold on the first try and we don’t think we found the vibe for the “it” photo. Jane, Rachel and I all agree we should try again to get the “one”. But these pics are fantastic for now, and have set the tone for the styling of the shot that we are going for.
Music Every Day Grows Wings in Roxbury
Due to the great time and the successes the kids had when we donated The Music Every Day Educational Project, to the Central school in Roxbury, NY this May…we’ve been invited back to work with 40 more students in the fall! Coyote Love Entertainment, LLC has partnered with The Greater Roxbury Learning Initiative Corporation (GRLIC), and The Roxbury Central School have applied for a partnership grant so that Music Every Day will ride again!
Students Perform their version of “Music Every Day”
This would be the project in its dream scenario, we’d be integrated with the Language Arts, Choral, and Band classes during the school day for the better part of a week and the kids would perform the following week with Coyote Love as support (and warm up band). Everyone gets paid and we go away happy and with some lovely video footage to share with the kids, the staff involved, and the world, when we are through.
This partnership and the program we donated in May are inspired by the humanity, energy, and generosity of spirit of the late Terry Doyle, a radio DJ from the Catskills who did a lot to promote us Coyotes on the radio. And now the project will bring music to even more kids’ lives up there. He would have loved that.
Cross your fingers for us because the grant application went in two weeks ago.
Upstate Blues Intensive with Moonie Pusey and Mike D
Thanks to the generosity of costume designer Karen Flood and her gourmet chef husband, Henning Nordanger, we are going upstate next week to do some intense blues writing and development to add more songs to the comically late blues series that we have been promising you. We’ll also be forced to try some of the food at the restaurant that they recently opened together, “Henning’s Local”. OH FUDGE!
Moonie is a mean blues picker, and Delta inspired blues boogie machine Mike D is the guy I learned the blues with when I was 14. This collaboration has been a long time coming. For Mike and I, working with the guy we used to go see live with one of our favorite bands, (Steel Pulse) is a dream come true. The fact that we get to do it up in Karen’s cathedral-ceilinged, hardwood-floored costume shop while drinking beer, taking nature walks, eating gourmet food and wading in streams is beyond sublime.
But the point of it all is that you need new music to listen to. You want to be inspired. And you know that good blues heals the soul. We want to give that to you. No matter how long it takes. This trip brings us all that much closer.
Another Stage For Rachel
Rachel is going through another stage…or rather across one, with the play she is doing at the Brick Theater, in ultra-hip Williamsburg, with our pals from Dysfunctional Theater Company (members of the cast also appear in our soon to be released video for “Blame It”).
Go see Rachel and the Dysfunctional team yuck it up in this comic look at sci-fi culture.
Dysfunctional Theater Company’s “Final Defenders”
The Brick Theater Inc. and Dysfunctional Theatre Company present
by Patrick Storck
as part of the Game Play Festival
Thursday July 11 – 8pm
Thursday July 18 – 7pm
Saturday July 20 – 4pm
Friday July 26 – 9pm
at The Brick, 579 Metropolitan Avenue (between Union & Lorimer; L to Lorimer, G to Metropolitan)
If you are up on New York culture, The Brick represents the “Indie Theater” movement that grew out small (or large) off-off-off Broadway Theaters like Todo Con NADA and the Theatorium on the Lower East Side (Which by the early 2000’s were priced out of the neighborhood that they helped make cool). Rachel and I met through Inverse Theater Co, which was right at the front lines of the Indie Theater movement in the late 90’s and early part of the millennium. So go see her and be a part of Coyote and New York history. BTW, the bar up the street from the Brick Theater serves free wood oven pizza with your beer. What?
