Scott Cooper & the Barrelmakers is a side project of China Cats guitarist Scott Cooper, whose penchant for playing Grateful Dead music is matched by his talent for songwriting. The New Times said, “The singer-songwriter delivers thoughtful, literate tunes that stick with you,” while New Orleans’ Offbeat magazine called them “a well-oiled roots/jam band” and added “he can write material worthy of the bands he loves.” The band plays a mix of originals and covers from the Dead, Dylan, Beatles, etc. Cooper’s first CD reached #5 on the national jam band radio charts and his subsequent three other CD are KPIG standards including the hit song “Ghosts of La Honda.” Lead guitarist Fred Rodriguez and bassist Andy Birchett are also familiar to SLO music lovers from their old band Three-Legged Dawg. Rounding out the band are former Dark Star Orchestra drummer Mark Corsolini and pianist Lachlan “Citizen” Kane.
