Before the livestream starts I explain to the audience that I’ll be performing songs written early in my career and performed as a character that felt more comfortable and confident singing them than I did. I called this music The New Old School.
Poster from The Maggie Cocco Band at the Majestic Cafe, Detroit, 2015
As compositions, they draw heavily on classic rock and blues. The character was based on badass women of rock and blues history; women who were unabashedly powerful, sensual, deep, and talented. It was really fun to revisit this character and her music. Enjoy The Maggie Cocco Band - Acoustic featuring Matthew Shepherd on guitar - for Diablos Caravan at ONEONESIX.
Visit The Maggie Cocco Band on FB for livestreams featuring the Tommy Pickett and Doc Sanchez.
