The Ben Cote Band
The Ben Cote Band, from Boston, MA and formed at Berklee College of Music, is just the guitar-driven breath of fresh air that the world needs right now in the 21st Century! Influenced by artists such as Van Halen, Guns N' Roses, The Runaways, and Aerosmith, this power trio is transfusing a new lifeblood into rock music and is creating spirited original music. Fueled by explosive guitar work and euphoric choruses, and fronted by guitarist and vocalist Ben Cote, the band brings energy and power to all their performances. Their mission is to fill the gap in the current music industry that is absent of time-honored American Rock N’ Roll!
The Ben Cote Band has released several internationally-recognized recordings, including several singles throughout the 2019 months, and is scheduled to release a brand new EP in October 29, titled It's Pronounced "Cody". Another notable mention is their 2018 LP, Get Your Licks In!
The band's music video, Nine Seven Six, won the Best Music Video of 2019 award by WooTube, which was following their 2018 Get Your Licks In win as Best Music Video of 2018! Ben has been featured in City To Country Magazine (Mar/Apr 2018), ION Indie Magazine (July 2017) and Metronome Magazine (June 2017).
Ben is endorsed by Sea Glass Guitars, and he co-designed and released a signature model guitar, the BC1, in 2018, and is currently working on a second model scheduled to be released in 2020. He is also endorsed by DiMarzio Inc., and uses their pickups exclusively, as well as Xotic Effects Pedals.
The band tours all over the Eastern USA, and frequents venues in their hometown such as the House of Blues Boston!
