From the Band
Mike Coultas and Kathy Brink have been friends for over 20 years, but both were too busy in their respective bands to ever have the chance to work together. However, they recently teamed up to provide an alternative to a full band setting. Both seasoned performers, the duo provide a wide variety of songs, including covers of Keith Urban, Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Fleetwood Mac, R.E.M., Lady Antebellum, Pure Prairie League, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Sheryl Crow and many more. Coultas has been playing guitar since the age of 11. His high school years were spent in local bands and, after a stint in the military, he joined “Two for the Show Trio”. For the next four years, he and his two bandmates traveled the U.S. in a 1966 Pontiac Bonneville hearse playing clubs, lounges, conventions and hotels. Somewhere along the way, they got a spot on The Gong Show – and won! He spent the last 26 years in a local band called “Quick Change”. He is currently playing with a group called “Boulevard”. Mike is also a prolific songwriter; one of his songs, “Solitary Lovers”, charted on the Billboard Country Charts for several weeks. Brink has been playing in various country, classic rock and blues bands since the age of 16, most recently The Undeniable and Little Sister. She has performed as a solo act, acoustic duo, in various local bands, as a Patsy Cline impersonator and with a few jazz bands, singing standards. Also a songwriter, she recently released a self-penned CD, “Stronger Than I Know”, with two tracks winning songwriting contests. You might even hear a few of those during a live performance. Brink and Coultas perform at several local wineries, as well as some smaller local venues. Both welcome the relaxed and intimate settings, and they enjoy adding harmonies to each others’ songs. Their schedules can be found on their respective websites, www.myspace.com/kathybrink and www.boulevardband.net.
