Willie Ziavino and COT Band

The boys are back!

Willie Ziavino & the C.O.T. Band is a latin band based in the Atlanta area. We play a mix of salsa, merengue, funk, bachata, caribbean rhythms, jazz, rumba, trova cubana and brazilian beats with our own twist. In 2010 Willie Ziavino formed the C.O.T. Band along with Juan Bonini (Panamá) resulting in the fusion of trova, jazz, caribbean / brazilian rhythms and musical influences from each band member. This world music style blends perfectly with the melting pot that is Atlanta.

FLAP

FLAP’s esoteric experiments, which variously involve speed metal licks, mathy bluegrass riffs, skronky folk-jazz interludes, and psychedelic country ballads plied on acoustic and electric instruments including banjo and theremin.  FLAP’s lyrics further defy convention while tickling the funny bone by focusing on oddball subjects and novel characters, such as the unemployed pet owner who pines for the days when he could afford ‘Doggie Daycare’ and aged malcontents ruminating on the glory days of hardcore punk deprivations in ‘Bad Samaritan’.”   – Doug DeLoach, Creative Loafing Atlanta
