After winning the National Harmony Sweepstakes, they were voted one of the hottest vocal quartets in the country. This amazing group then began touring heavily on the college circuit and was soon recognized as the most requested college act in the nation.
Their success has led THE COATS to appear on several local and national television programs including NBC’s hit comedy, Frasier. Kelsey Grammer said in a later interview that his favorite thing about Seattle is “THE COATS!”
THE COATS recently signed a national distribution deal for their two latest CD’s, “The Coats Collection” and “On Christmas Time”, and are ready to burst into the national radio scene. In fact, their CD “On Christmas Time” was nominated for an INDIE award for best seasonal album of the year by AFIM (Association of Independent Music) in 2001. This award given to an unsigned artist is similar to a Grammy for a signed artist. THE COATS recently performed at The White House in Washington DC for the Susan G. Komen race for the cure against breast cancer. The performance in the East Room had the whole White House singing along to THE COATS electrifying harmonies!
THE COATS have performed all over the world because of their supreme entertainment value as a corporate act and have received thousands of standing ovations from audiences all across the country. Whether opening for other national artists, headlining their own stage, performing at fairs and festivals, or entertaining at a corporate party, people of every age get hooked on THE COATS high-energy stage show and phenomenal vocal harmonic range. One fan commented, “I just can’t believe what they can do with their voices.”
Others they have performed for have said:
“The Coats harmonic energy is a first class act that will often be requested and long be remembered.” -Gary E. Brown (Monterey, CA Police Chief, Monterey, CA)
“Let us know if you need a back up band” -The Beach Boys (West. Washington Fair, Puyallup, WA)
“Those guys are amazing.” -Jay Leno (Silver Legacy, Reno, NV)
“The White House has never heard such great harmonies!” George W. Bush, President of the United States of America (The White House, Washington D.C.) June 2001
