Hoochi Coochi Talks About Blues, Family, Inspiration, Dancing, Influences and more
Dover-DE based band Hoochi Coochi is a four-piece group with Danielle (Brown Sug) Johnson on vocals, Fatz Hawkins on guitar, Chelsea Grant on drums, and Mark Reed on bass. Originally Danielle and Fatz got together at a few open mics just to have fun with some blues based songs as a change of pace from what they were each doing individually -- but they had so much fun and the crowd enjoyed it so much, they decided to make a real thing out of it. Thus, Hoochi Coochi was born out of $3 bottles of wine and songwriting sessions.The band is currently working on new music, planning to go into the studio this summer, and officially release their latest single, BBW, in July. You can listen to a preview of their original recording of BBW with Weathervane Music here.Listen to the interview with Danielle of Hoochi Coochi where she talks about some of her influences, how the band gets along, how the scenes in Dover and Wilmington compare to Philly, some of their favorite Philly & Delaware bands to watch live and hang out with, their fave venues to play and much more.
