The roots of the Coyote Bill Boogie Band are in the Chicago area, but this group has been a staple in the Kansas City music scene since 2007. Since the summer of that year, Coyote Bill has been serving up his own brand of high energy, slide-guitar driven Gutbucket Blues and House Rockin' Boogie all over the KC Metro anywhere and everywhere he can. From upscale clubs and restaurants to rough-and-tumble biker bars and rural roadhouses. On any given night one may find the Coyote Bill Boogie Band performing in the swanky surroundings of Zona Rosa or an inner city warehouse for homeless people. The band performs a blend of originals and covers, but manages to retain a distinct signature sound in everything they play. Coyote Bill occasionally performs as a solo act, but his solo performances are equally as raucous and energetic. In recent years Coyote Bill and his crew have expanded their base to other cities in the region from Topeka KS, to St. Joseph MO, all the way to Springfield MO, and they are looking forward to expanding even further in the future. Coyote Bill has been a supporter of C.O.P.P. Inc, an organization that helps Kansas City's homeless community. He has played their Winter Survival Event several times since 2008 and the band has organized an annual clothing drive and fundraiser for the organization that they have been doing since 2010. The Coyote Bill Boogie Band have been nominated for the Pitch Music Award for Best Blues Band in 2010 and 2012, and have twice performed at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas. In addition to performing, Coyote Bill is also a reporter writing about the Kansas City Blues scene for Big City Blues Magazine as well as the KC Blues News.
