Cooper Tisdale: [Fusion Jazz / Progressive Rock]

Influenced by the guitar greats Jeff Beck and Alan Holdsworth, and with comparisons to Steve Morse, Joe Satriana and Eric Johnson, Cooper Tisdale is joined by some of Atlanta’s best to deliver stellar sets of rock/jazz fusion. Performing dozens of original compositions, their inspired live dates jam with classic instrumental Tisdale tunes including “Lake Acid” and “Toe Truck”, offer mellow heartfelt vocal rock ballads including “Fireman Bill” and “Bad Judge”, and serve up contemporary jazz grooves including “E.J.” and “Good Friend”. After booking Cooper Tisdale & Friends, we think you’ll join his many fans as loyal listeners – this guy can really play!
