The Organ Crushers: Self Titled 2011


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Organ Crushers are an Organ / Drum duo from Chicago Illinois. The band is made up of Daryl Coutts on hammond C3, wullitzer, clavinet, moog, and Wandering Genie; Joe Arteaga on drums and percussion. Their music is very heavily groove orientated but with a very aggressive energy creating sounds that can easily match that of a larger band. The music can be described as sounding like a mixture of Medeski Martin & Wood, Deep Purple, The Funky Meters, and Booker T and the MG,s to name a few.
The Organ Crushers originated in 2010 and released their debut album in December 2011. Before The Organ crushers, Daryl was the keyboardist for Chicago Blues Guitarist Ronnie Baker Brooks, the son of legendary Chicago blues guitarist Lonnie Brooks.

Throughout his time with Ronnie Brooks Daryl has recorded on over 50 albums with artists such as Ronnie Brooks, Lonnie Brooks, Eddie Clearwater, Diamond Jim Green, Dyther Smith, and Bango Tango to name a few.
