NYC Blues-Rock Band Hoochie Coochie Men new EP Big Blue Tree



(New York, NY) NYC-based, blues-rock band Hoochie Coochie Men release their 2015 EP, Big Blue Tree. It was produced by Grammy nominated engineer Brendan Muldowney (Elvis Costello, Tedeschi Trucks Band) and features the band's blend of folk/blues and unique resonating vocals. The EP ​was premiered on ​Groundsounds, who called the release a "fresh spin on a classic blues-rock style."



Founded in 2011 at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania, Hoochie Coochie Men started out as a blues and jazz cover band, but by 2012 the duo of Zach Gold and Alex Musso attracted three more members: organist and vocalist Joey Tumulty, bassist Grant Kempski and drummer Brian Duke, who helped Hoochie Coochie Men craft their own original music. Since then, the band has been gaining steam and finishing a 40-show summer tour of the northeast, including a stop at Jazz Up July in Stamford, CT, where they opened for the legendary B.B. King.



The Hoochie Coochie Men have earned praise across the board from outlets like Vents Magazine, Paper Blog and This is Book’s Music. Eight-time Grammy award winning composer, Paul Winter called their sound a “fresh and inspiring take on American roots music" and HearHear Music applauded the band’s mashup of Etta James and John Lennon “I’d Rather Go Blind/Don’t Let Me Down” saying, “This is what keeps me writing about music, listening to music, dreaming about music.” Hoochie Coochie Men recently hosted their EP release party at The Bitter End in New York City and will be playing locally and at festivals across the U.S. Keep an eye out for Hoochie Coochie Men near you and check out their new EP, Big Blue Tree!
