Coffy, an experienced and true spirited performer leads the band in its amazing live events. The Matt Coffy Band puts on a high wired, amped up rocking show.

Coffy has supported acts including George Thorogood, 38 Special, Blackfoot, Foghat, Artimus Pyle, The Guess Who, Bob Weir’s Rat Dog, Max Creek, James Cotton, Black Velvet and a host of other notables during his musical career.

Not only do they team up to write great songs, they command the stage when they perform live.

 

From The Press:

“The Matt Coffy Band embodies everything that an American bar band is supposed to be.  Drunk on its own alcohol-fueled, blues-soaked rock, the Band delivers authentic blue-collar grit with no studio slickness or limp ballads to water down the dirt.”

"The Matt Coffy Band has energy to burn, and this record is relentless in its quick pacing.  ... the Band just keep moving, and we're partying along with them. The ’80s are often remembered here.... memories of many MTV-addicted forty-somethings is the blues rock that managed to creep onto the charts from largely forgotten bar bands like the Georgia Satellites and the Fabulous Thunderbirds.  The Matt Coffy Band, with its rootsy, good-time party rock, could be viewed as spiritual kin ....."
