Coyote Riot is group of friends hailing from the far Southwest side of Chicago playing a style of Americana music with hints of folk, bluegrass, rockabilly and more. What began as hanging out, banging on some guitars and occasionally playing at local pubs back in 2012 has matured into a more developed sound being put on display on bigger stages around the Midwest and has culminated into the band’s first album release of original music in December of 2016 titled “Burnt Along the Way.”
Combining the raucous sounds of guitars, tenor banjo, electric bass, pedal steel and fiddle and an array of signature voices, Coyote Riot has developed a knack for putting on a rowdy show bursting with energy. The band can often be found playing out around venues stretching the city, the local bars in and around their Mount Greenwood – Beverly neighborhood and playing outdoor summer festivals or parties for just about any occasion.
The band looks forward to further developing their sound, adding to their catalog of original music in preparation for their follow up album and continuing to put on energy packed shows which has won them over a loyal and growing following around the Midwest.
