MEET THE BAND! Wild Man Cooley plays a mix of Western Swing from the 1920’s-40’s, mixed with some jazz standards and very early rock tunes. Their upbeat song list is very danceable for all ages – in a style the band has dubbed Northwest Rural Swing. Wild Man Cooley features John Koschnick on Guitar, Peter Keating on banjo, drums, and vocals (simultaneously!), Fran Einterz on string bass, David Howell, vocals and harmonica, Peggy Moe, vocals and accordion, and Rick Castellano, vocals, ukulele, and cornet.
