The Kootz? Welcome! It’s the “Rock ‘n Roll with Fiber” world of this group of North-NJ guys; ‘musical friends’ with a collective-passion for classic rock, pop, soul & blues and just ‘plain-old great music’!
In early ’01, North Caldwell, NJ’s Glenn Taylor and a group of his Essex & Union County friends/musicians, decided that they, along with several other area players had enough ‘chemistry’ to assemble a well-seasoned & eclectic pop-rock and blues ‘collective’. They’d been performing in different-incarnations occasionally since ’93, with consistently positive reactions… so… they decided to ‘Kootzify’!
The group is unique, as the ‘band-format’ goes; Rather than maintaining one-‘set’-lineup of members, The Kootz have grown into a ‘collective’ of a-baker’s-dozen ‘regular’ plus 7 ‘guest-Kootz, who play-together in a wonderful and varied ‘assortment’ of ‘Kootz-Kombinations’!
Now, audiences are ‘wowed’ at the variety of styles & material in ‘The Kootz’ repertoire. Whether its… Rock-clubs to resorts, private parties and town-concerts; Biker bars to bistros, coffee houses and libraries; The Kootz always serve-up an array of the music that’s at everyone’s ‘very core’… The songs of the baby-boomer era from the 60’s and on-through 90’s! It’s the music that always makes you FEEL GOOD!
The Kootz released their debut CD, “Tales From The Endless Bus-Tour of New Jersey”, in late ’05, with 16 original & classic-cover cuts! Their latest endeavor, “Kootleg”, is a ‘totally live’ CD of everyone’s favorite cover tunes… and was released this-past summer!!!
In the meantime, you can see The Kootz on their ‘Endless Bus Tour of New Jersey’ all year ’round! The band has averaged 250+ live shows-annually, including approximately 50 municipal concert and festival appearances. The band also recently enjoyed being featured not once, but TWICE on News-12 New Jersey’s ‘Spotlight-NJ’ program, hosted by Della Crews!
