Over the years, the members of the Coins of Catalina are no stranger to sharing the stage with legendary greats.
Located in the desert southwest, their blend of American Music tells the stories from the other side of the fence.
Currently, the Coins are working on an album project featuring a dozen songs with both acoustic and electric alternative folk/rock appeal. Singer/Songwriter Vic Neil spins his musical stories with subjects like; working for the devil, writers block and the perils of the road.
Vic launched his musical career at an early age with the band Tall Tales and their release of the controversial song, “Animal Man." Hitting the airways helped blaze the path for performances at night clubs and festivals throughout the US and Canada.
These roads eventually led to joining forces with both Jack Fandray (bass) and Jon Mason (drums) who spent their years polishing their musical chops throughout the states by touring with various one-hit wonders.
The Coins first CD titled “A Salute to the American Songwriter.” features songs written by Steve Earle, Dave Alvin, John Hiatt, Joe Ely. Delbert McClinton and a list of others.
Last year the Coins of Catalina released "A Box of Bones" with songs like “Cool as Can Be” telling it best… “Now that I’m grown, I prefer a splash of something strong, delivered by wings, with the sweet taste of key-lime pie.”
