The Cuckoo Bees
The Cuckoo Bees are an exciting new trio from Duluth, MN that is really creating a buzz. Crafty, articulate, and catchy songwriting along with unique instrumentation (xylophone, percussion, guitar, upright bass) and an energetic live performance, makes them a must-see. Founded by Cory Coffman (guitar, vocals, percussion) and Mikayla Haynes (xylophone, percussion, vocals), and joined by Matthew Mobley (upright bass), The Cuckoo Bees combined have a lengthy and diverse performance background. Their music reflects this diversity and draws inspiration from Pop, Jazz, Folk, Indie-rock, Classical and much more. Their debut album 'Weeping Willow' is appealing to both the casual listener and the experienced musician. It is a peculiar blend of catchy, melodic tunes and creative instrumental music that showcases the marimba, xylophone, strings, and other instruments in the percussion family. It is truly captivating musically and lyrically, and maintains a lightheartedness throughout that is easy to enjoy.
