Cougar Town – John Mellencamp Tribute


Cougar Town was created by long time friends Michael Perea and Tony C. after years of wanting to form a project together. It always seemed like the two were fronting different bands at the same time.  Finally, they found themselves with the time to form a project.  Now what to do?   Obviously with Michael’s penchant for hard rock and heavy metal and Tony’s preference for gothic and new wave the two had to meet in the middle.  Michael was visiting Tony’s house one evening, and while Tony was playing his acoustic guitar he stumbled upon a song he had covered in his youth, Pink Houses.   Michael joined in singing and Cougar Town was born.   The two discovered they were both fans of John Mellencamp.  Problem solved.

Now that the obstacle of genre and artist was behind them, it was time to think about other members.   Tony mentioned recently having played with a drummer and keyboard player that he wanted to perform with again.  Enter drummer, Jackson Matayo and keyboardist Jimmy Graft.  The three musicians were thrilled to have reunited. 

Next came the dreaded social media ads.   Tony (who practices social media abstinence) handed the reins over to Michael.  After a few ads and auditions, enter bass player Mark Newmeyer and guitarist Joe Easton.   Strangely, both Mark and Joe were friends with Michael in the past but had lost touch. 

The unit quickly gelled and embarked on bringing John Mellencamp’s exceptional writing and their own brand of good time energy to stages throughout the Southeast. 

Professionalism.  Positivity.  Performance.  Passion….  and Pink Houses. 

What a combination, see Cougar Town as soon as you get the chance. You won’t regret it!
