“We play roots music. It’s a little bit folk, a little bit country and even some raggae,” says Cook.

The band is currently on a two-month tour promoting their third CD “Moonlit Rambles”.

Cook has also traveled solo before, touring across the country and living in his band. He says that he likes being able to bring his band.

“We’ve played in Golden before. We played at Packers, then it turned into The Lyric and then the Rockwater, and we played at the Roadhouse and up on the hill.” Cook says he enjoys playing small gigs such as Bacchus Books.

“ My music revolves around story telling and I like when people can sit and listen to the story.”

Jesse Dee and Jacquie B will also be performing songs from their upcoming release Our Ghosts Will Fill These Walls.

“I think our biggest accomplishment would be staying together this long!” says Cook of the three year old band, “a lot of bands can’t do it but we can manage and work together really well. We’re best friends and all musically kindered. We have a common heart.”
