The Cool Waters Band is Good Time Rock and Roots at its finest – high-energy, dynamic, intense, inviting, feel-good music. Based out of the hard-working Fox Cities of Wisconsin (Appleton, Oshkosh, Green Bay), CWB has changed the way live original music is listened to and appreciated throughout the region. With an extremely dedicated fan base throughout the Midwest, Cool Waters is making powerful statements on their own terms, in their own unique way.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, Freekbass was an only child who initially wanted to be a magician. He later developed his own obsession for cartoon superheroes and comic books, relating to the underlying themes.
Living in Cincinnati exposed Freekbass to genres of music he may have missed otherwise. While most kids were listening to Nirvana and Green Day, he connected with the bottom-heavy sounds coming out of the boom boxes like Zapp and Midnight Star. While working in a music shop to pay off his first electric bass he had in lay-away, he began to study the classics of Larry Graham, Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament and Bootsy with a bass in one hand, and an MPC2000 in the other.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Alex Rossi is a vocalist, guitarist and songwriter who has been performing professionally for over 15 years. With strong roots in blue...s, soul and funk, Rossi has created his own unique and recognizable sound from his diverse musical background. His performances most often include a 3 – 5 piece band and a crowd that never leaves the dance floor.
