FOR RELEASE ON: MON SEPT 4TH
HEARTLAND ROCKER COMES TO SAVE YOUR SOUL, THIS FRIDAY AT THE GRAND STAFFORD
MONDAY SEPT 4TH - Keeton Coffman and his band of rock and roll revivalists headline the historic Grand Stafford Theater this Friday, September 8th. With a mission of high-volume hope and a setlist of soul stirring sing-alongs—the College Station native uses rhythm and melody to remind us all what we’re reaching for.
Heartland Rock and Roll best describes the wide-ranging style of Killer Eyes, Coffman’s first full-length album. Pub song "What We’re Reaching For" keeps your heels stomping, tracks “Ellie" and "Killer Eyes" evoke memories of dancehall favorites, and “The Mountain” is dripping with gospel influences. Keeton's newest project fuses the small town Texas sound he was raised in with the knuckle and grit of his rock and roll soul.
A seasoned performer, Coffman clearly feels at home on stage. The invisible scars of a blue collar songwriter sets him apart and serves him well as he lives and breathes his music. “As a songwriter, the greatest blessing is that people find themselves in your songs. That's what this record is about. It's really for them," says Coffman.
In between performances, Coffman splits time with his second love - teaching. Creator and owner of the innovative and ground breaking music school in Houston, The Rehearsal Room (www.rehearsalroommusic.com), Keeton has found a very satisfying balance of living what he teaches, and teaching what he lives for - songwriting and performing. The Rehearsal Room has over 100 students and 8 bands that perform half a dozen time a year in the Houston area.
On stage, you can’t miss Coffman’s lifelong influences Bruce Springsteen and The Wallflowers—enhanced with his love for the sonics of Motown and Phil Spector’s Wall Of Sound. His performances are often compared to current personal favorites like Dwight Yoakam, Foy Vance, and Ryan Adams.
“Our showshave become like family gatherings for the band - especially the ones out on the road … loud, lots of laughs, and an infectious energy.” Keeton and the band have been filling rooms all year long in Houston, and now set their sites to bring a little bit of Rock and Roll Heaven to Aggieland.
Keeton Coffman takes the stage at 10pm at The Grand Stafford Theater. Opening acts include The Docs and The Lonely Wheel. Tickets are $8 pre saleand on sale now at www.keetoncoffman.com
