Andy Koch (pronounced “cook”) moved to Bellingham from Seattle in the fall of 1973 to attend Fairhaven College. It was meant to be a temporary move.
His motto now, he says, is “old enough to know better; too late to stop now.”

A heartfelt thanks to all for keeping track of our goings ons, and making it out to shows when you can.
We could not do it without your support.
Our latest CD OFF LEASH! Featuring Fat James, is available at shows and is a perfect gift for the Blues Lover on your list.
