Meet The Band
Cougar Unleashed is building, as a brand, and this brand offers a variety of music styles and genres. The Party Band style is our primary style, focusing on uptempo dance tunes; however, we can provide an acoustic style and feel just as easily. The nightly blend of genres is a huge reason why we all enjoy working together; but more importantly, why our fans love us. And we've found that doing the same music at every gig can reduce self-challenge, and we strive for continual growth.
As a group of musicians, we are friends that have found each other at the right place and the right time. Cougar Unleashed has been very lucky to have worked with two core members - Tom and ESG - over the last 3 years. Even producing the originals published on our Music page and available for purchase on linked websites below. In addition, we connected with 2 fantastic male vocalists - Danny on Keyboard and Harmonica and Dave on drums, which has expanded the genres we can perform. And if we do not know it, we can learn it. So please check us out and share us with your friends. And sign up for mailing list to keep up to date with our shows and happenings. Namaste.
