About Me

 

Hi! I’m Andy Coco, a musician, producer, sound engineer, voice talent, and DJ, working daily in music and audio production and performance – and totally loving it!

I also have the great pleasure of singing and playing bass guitar in a bunch of great bands. I co-founded a New Orleans songs & styles review band called Gumbohead in the late 90’s, then built new soul jazz performance combos called Hip Grease and the Dogtown Allstars in the early 2000s.

The Rhythm Section Road Show was a performing combo built in 2010 as an offshoot of my weekly radio show on KDHX, “The Rhythm Section,” on which I spin soul jazz and R&B each Friday from 2-4pm CST on 88.1fm and kdhx.org. (that started in January 2002)

I continue to perform regularly with my bands, Andy Coco’s NOLA Funk and Rhythm & Blues Revue, The Service, Hip Grease, and Dogtown Records Presents… at clubs in the St. Louis area. You can also catch me performing as bassist and vocalist with Sean Canan’s VooDoo Players and the 11 member Rolling Stones tribute Street Fighting Band.

I am proud to do my part to help elevate the status of contemporary popular music from the Mississippi River region as a true and unique art form, growing and richening everyday, and hope to remind the world about St. Louis’s rich history in contribution to the development of modern music, and an incredibly vibrant live music scene to this day.

In late 2014 I founded Dogtown Records, a production company specializing in musician services, live performance a/v recording, mixing, editing, & publishing.  Music produced by and published on the DR imprint is available for listening, download, and purchase at:
