Hi my name is Kevin Coelho and I’m an artist with Tony Monaco’s Chicken Coup Label. I’ll soon be releasing my second CD with Chicken Coup / Summit, and I’m excited to be working with Tony and Darby Christiansen, both of whom have been a great help to me in my just starting career in music.

I’ll be attending Stanford University in the fall. Tony has been a great influence on me as a musician and a person. What I gained from Tony was not only a true master’s sense of how to approach the B3, but valuable insight into the world of the music business and how I should approach my musical career in general. Tony is one of the warmest souls I’ve ever met, and not once did he hesitate to provide me with opportunities that would otherwise have been far beyond my reach. I can honestly say I would not be where I am today without him. Tony’s warm outreach and friendly manner would be a great match for any student, and I’m glad that I was able to learn so much from him in my time with him. While many musicians are protective of their work, Tony is always open to sharing and as a young organ player, I was able to pick up on so much just by watching him play. As my teacher, Tony pushed me to higher levels every time we met – including forcing me onto the bandstand over and over again, giving me experience playing with a real band on a real gig. That band turned out to be my first call trio band, Reggie Jackson and Derek DiCenzo, and I’ve never met a better couple of musicians that I could imagine myself touring with, or recording with, or really doing anything organ-related with. Ultimately my experience with Tony was life-changing, and I would highly recommend him to any aspiring organ players out there. There’s a handful of true masters of the Hammond B3 on this planet, and Tony is absolutely one of them, and at the top of my list. He gave me a lot to work with and I’m always grateful.
