Keith E. Cooper

I am an accomplished electric bass guitar player and saxophonist who doubles on flute and clarinet. I have been a professional musician since 1972. I can sight read well and I sing lead and harmony. I have been in numerous bands including the US Army s 2nd Armored Division Band. I played baritone sax in the dance band. I played bass guitar and sang in the duty combo known as “The Statesmen”. In the chorus I was the section leader for the basses. I played both flute and piccolo in the concert band and the marching band.

Civilian bands I have been in include the show band “The Boys Next Door.” I played bass, saxes, flute, some guitar and some keyboards as well as singing lead and harmony. Around 1990 I was in “The Bop Cats”, Tulsa s premier 50s and 60s band. Again I played a variety of instruments and sang. “The Bop Cats” backed up “The Marvelettes”, Little Anthony, “The Dixie Cups”, Freddie Cannon, “The Drifters”, “The Diamonds”, and numerous other stars from the 50s and 60s. We also opened for “Asleep at the Wheel” and “Blood, Sweat, and Tears”.
