The Cooley Gang


Songwriting cousins Ryan Cooley Gaujot and Jason Jaros swap mandolins, guitars, tunes, lyrical harmonies, ballads, improvisations, and rhythms to create a musical experience to get your feet moving with songs that tell of true-life encounters, local history, and tall tales.  With Chris Bern (bass) Greg "Shorty" Short (percussion), and Pat Sutton(drums) the WV based Appalachian rooted Americana band draws on a wide range of musical influences from blues, jazz, and reggae, to country, bluegrass, old time, and rock & roll.
