BREAKING THE MOLD….
Are you ready to break free from the usual rockabilly music and delve into some Ohio bread billie music that reaches deep
from the soul? Then get ready for the Kookie Cutterz from Akron who deliver a tasty dish of billy music with a style that
grows its own groove will have you dancin and rocking to their sound all night long. Playing everything from the Stray
Cats to Tom Petty and their own originals as well, the Kookie Kutterz are playing some of the hottest music around and are a band you don’t want to miss.
The Kookie Kutterz include Lance “Pete” Crackers on drums, Phillie-O Nelson on guitar and Lorna “Sugar” Doone on stand up bass. “Three ‘billies
from the farmland of Ohio playing rockabilly with three part harmonies.”
“Long time friends, who briefly played together, marinated the idea of taking the piss out of cookie cutter rockabilly
bands during many late night, drunken jams. As happens, our joke became a reality!” We’re inspired by our friends and our dogs. We just want to make fun music for fun people.”
As for their latest news, the Kutterz have just finished some new recordings, “We recently finished recording our Sophomore album, titled “Hot Mess Express”, and have begun debuting those songsduring live shows. Expect the album to release in early 2020 with live shows to follow. Everything we need to create our sound existed as of 1964. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
The Kookie kutterz had the opportunity to play the Heavy Rebel Weekender which was a big moment for the band.
“Playing the Main Stage at Heavy Rebel Weekender 2019 in Winston-Salem, NC was a big “get” and a great time.
Our set was led in by an impromptu half-hour burlesque performance that forced us to re-think our setlist and
our stage outfits!”
Be sure to expect plenty from the Kookie Kutterz in 2020 as well as the band plans more originals and traveling to bars and clubs across Ohio and the region bringing their brand of music to the people across the land. If you haven’t had a chance to here this band be sure to find a show and here them live. You need to hear them live or catch them online. This is a band you want to hear and experience as they play with some great influences that include the Reverend Horton Heat, Southern Culture on the Skids, Elvis, Tenacious D
and Tom Petty. The result is a party and a night of Ohio Billy music like no other!
