A little about the artist...

Cooper Young, who takes his name from his favorite Memphis, Tennessee, Mid-Town neighborhood is a guitarist/singer/songwriter, occasional piano player, recording artist and mimic extraordinaire, who would like nothing more than to share his musical passion with you. Cooper is currently booking shows in the Southern Mid Michigan area, Northern Indiana and Ohio.

"Cooper’s rich baritone to bass vocals meandered between Leon Redbone and Jack Johnson. Meanwhile his guitar spoke with bluesy undercurrents of American highways. Cooper’s originals had a voice that imbued ragtime and gypsy jazz with a healthy coating of delta blues. He reached way out with an extraordinary and fun cover of “Brand New Key” by Melanie. Cooper Young put on a fine show featuring some nifty guitar playing."   (Life In Michigan magazine... CHUCK MARSHALL | MAY 16, 2019...Used by permission)

With Covid hopefully getting near it's end, and life starting to get back to some sort of normal, Cooper continues playing at the never-ending, and always evolving night-spot, club, bar, occasional coffee-house and restaurant venues where he has long been a popular and evolving mainstay.

Booking now for 2019/2020 Fall/Winter/Spring

Looking Forward.....

Yep, I'm Looking Forward as always, to playing your venue....

I'll give you three sets' of music, ranging from Delta Blues, obscure Pop Tunes and Original music, for a fair and competive rate. While I like to stay with the 3 hour set rule, on occasion I've been known to book a 4 hour evening, or if you should need something shorter, I will be happy to tailor my musical abilities to suit your specific needs. Professional sound system, professional attitude. Let's talk prices! I need to play music, you need entertainment! Let's do this!
