Come rock out with The Coffis Brothers, a rootsy rock n' roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains, influenced by folk, blues, R&B and straight-ahead rock. The Coffis Brothers include Jamie and Kellen Coffis, who were raised on music in the Santa Cruz Mountains in northern CA. Their music spans rock, blues, acoustic folk, and country, with inspiration going all the way back to the beginning — to pioneers like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers — also to artists like the Eagles and Tom Petty for influence. Jangling guitar leads and front-porch folk songs share equal space with heartland rock anthems and campfire-worthy Americana ballads, all dreamt into existence by a group of road warriors who wear their West Coast stripes proudly. This is honest, heartfelt roots-rock with an emphasis on the roots. Find out more information about The Coffis Brothers.!
