"Holland and Coots take you on a musical journey that radiates joyful ebullience one moment and wistful lyricism the next."
- Bryan Wright, owner Rivermont Records
"[They] should come with seat belts and a warning about excessive amounts of white-knuckle, adrenaline-charged, exuberant effervescence!"
- Tony Caramia, Director of Pedagogy Studies, Eastman School of Music, regarding Holland, Coots, and Spitznagel's recording "Three's Company"
"[This] is ... piano music at its best, presented in great variety, performed by superb musicians..."
- Max Morath, regarding Holland, Coots, and Wright's recording "Live from Buenos Aires”
Exciting, exhilarating, and exhausting!" is probably the best (and most alliterative) way to describe the jazz duo of Holland & Coots. Brian Holland and Danny Coots began performing together in 2010 after spending decades individually on the jazz and ragtime circuits honing their skills on piano and drums, respectively. Since joining forces, they've been on a mission to introduce audiences all over the world to their style of music and fun. With a delightful mix of jazz, blues, stride, boogie, pop, and ragtime, Holland & Coots have created something for every musical taste.
We can’t think of a better way to bring holiday cheer to Baltimore!
