Scotty & the Barrelmakers are a Santa Cruz-based Americana jam band led by Bay Area veteran musician Scott Cooper. The band showcases Cooper’s songwriting with jams that build in dynamics culminating in climactic jams. Cooper is familiar to many through his work with the China Cats, Gary Gates Band and others. Cooper’s first CD reached #5 on Relix magazine’s jam band radio charts and his follow-up is set to be released in the fall of 2015. Fans of Tedeschi Trucks, Little Feat, the Radiators, Grateful Dead, David Lindley and String Cheese Incident will appreciate the band’s songs, grooves and jams!
