Yippee Coyote WDVX Blue Plate Special, Knoxville TN
Louderdaddy as sailors
Amy Cabot has been surrounded by music her whole life. Daughter of a dixieland jazz pianist, there was always music resonating through the house. In the 80's, Amy was a founding member of "The Bandables" - the popular teen pop rock group who could be seen often at NYC hot spots like CBGB and The Bitter End. They were interviewed and performed on the TV show "Backstage Pass" with WLIR's Denis MacNamara, they toured Georgia, the Carolinas and around the East coast with their single "Cynicism b/w Love Lies Down" (Galt Records) gaining popularity, and hitting the number one spot on many local radio stations. After 'The Bandables' dispersed, Amy formed "Mystery Date" with bassist Scott Casher and drummer Dave Varenka. They put out one, self-titled EP which received great press in local news such as "The Music Paper" and "The Jersey Beat". In the 90's, Amy kept it local to her home town of NYC, starting up the group "The Fatty Acids" who could be seen most weekends at venues like CBGB, CBGB's Gallery, The Luna Lounge, The Bitter End, The Ludlow Street Cafe, C Note, and more. They released three albums, "The Fatty Acids", "The Feel Good Hit of the Summer", and "Close Up" on their own label, Fitzhound Productions. After relocating to CT, Amy and guitarist husband, Eliot Cabot, took a turn toward Americana/bluegrass with their band "Yippee Coyote". They took 'Yippee' on the road, touring down in Tenessee, and appeared on WDVX's Blue Plate Special. While in CT, Amy started playing with superfun local cover band, "Louderdaddy" - from that connection came the original project, "Imperial Drive", featuring Louderdaddy Dave Daignault's original songs, Frank Egan's wailing guitars, and produced in Justin Guip's (drummer for Levon Helm and Hot Tuna and three time grammy winner) Milan Hill Studio. Now, a new project for Amy, Dave, Frank, and Justin - all Amy's originals.
