Stephen Cooper and The Nobody Famous

November 23 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

STEPHEN COOPER AND THE NOBODY FAMOUS

Like a match to gasoline, Stephen Cooper and The Nobody Famous ignite a white hot fire of soul and R&B infused rock and roll, built on a framework of the classic Motown-Stax-Chess groove, but through a 21st Century filter and with all the subtlety of a stampeding rhino.  After 25-plus years touring across the US and Europe with an array of bands, singer/tenor saxophonist Stephen Cooper assumes the bandleader mantle and puts his name on the marquee for the first time.  Like a musical mad scientist, Cooper has combined the essences of some of the greatest music ever made and created something truly special.  “The idea is to have a living, breathing, musical conduit from the past to the present,” he explains, “and I think we’ve done that.”  Make no mistake, this is no nostalgic rehash, this is a band packed with innovation and intensity from top to bottom.  Scorching barnburners nestled alongside tender ballads, ruthless horns, swirling keyboards and fuzzed-out guitars, and vocals that owe an equal debt to Al Green and Chris Cornell.  They may call themselves Nobody Famous, but it’s only a matter of time before Stephen Cooper makes Nobody a household name.
