Album Notes
Pat Coast is a Northwest native and has been a serious student of blues guitar for over 35 years. Although proficient in many genres, including rock and roots rock, R&B, funk, country and acoustic guitar, Pat's first love remains blues, which he began learning at age 14 with some old T-Bone Walker and B.B. King records.
His musical journey has taken him many places, from 3 and a half straight years of touring 6 western states and Canada, to living in and gigging around Los Angeles and San Diego, to doing session work. In 1990, following a brief hiatus from the music business to start a family, Pat returned to his home town of Coeur d' Alene, in Northern Idaho, to provide a more relaxed atmosphere for his family and to pursue songwriting. After breaking his leg in an accident, Pat put together a small blues band to bring in some income, and two years later, found himself in an eight piece horn band called Cafe Blue, doing festivals and concerts as well as clubs. They put out a CD, "A Good Night For The Blues", featuring four of Pat's originals, which gained positive reviews from two national magazines and got airplay on college and public radio stations from Seattle to Kentucky. In 1999, Pat decided to strike out under his own name, releasing 3 more CDs, "Play Somethin' We Can Dance To", "Pat Coast Band LIVE", and Pat's favorite, "Don't Touch My Guitar."

Besides gigging, Pat also enjoys carpentry work, oil painting, writing, and motorcycle riding, logging in over 8,000 miles last year.

Pat currently resides in Post Falls, ID, with his wife Roxey, 3 children, and a surly, toothless cat named Sylvester.

Jeff Marlin

Great songwriting and singing, and some really smoking guitar work
The overall sound of the album is wonderful. The mix is clear, dynamic, and mud free. All of the songs are well written and arranged, and the musicianship is top notch. We get to hear a variety of blues based songs from classic blues to swing blues to funky blues, etc. Pat's got a good voice that is pleasing to listen to and his guitar playing is excellent. The guitar work on the album alone makes the CD worth purchasing, that added to the interesting lyrics and tasteful melodies of the 12 original songs on this album ensures that it gets a lot of play time in our household.

Blues Revue Magazine

Coast's guitar sound is quicksilver fast and a little jazzy, ala Robben Ford or Chris Cain, though he burns with a little more rock edge than those guys..."
-Blues Revue Magazine

Blues Access Magazine

"Great horn arrangements and tasty vocals and guitar from Pat Coast. They jump and jive, touching all the bases from swing to funk and back to blues..."
-Blues Access, Rooster's Picks

i think that pat coast was probably a scary badass in his youth. haha i don't know about that, but my point is this; underneath the seasoned production / songwriting and technical prowess (download the samples posted, it's obvious that the guy's hell of a guitarist), the album still inherits, after half a century, what made rock'n roll the coolest thing in the universe for the first time - the FUNK. i'm of course talking about the groove here, but if you have a dictionary handy, look it up on the definition no. 2 also; "strong musty smell of sweat and tobacco". you see, the best rockn' roll, no matter "tight" it sounds, is always dirty and smelly. so here it is - crank the sh!t up and enjoy!

CD Baby

"Pat Coast is a guitar god that has nothing to prove, and yet he has everything you blistered your fingers for when you were seventeen. The songwriting, arrangements, and vocals are all there. It's like bringing you out to the summerfest and, oh, here comes the guy we missed work for. "Don't Touch My Guitar" is something you should be listening to." - CD Baby


Great CD. Can't keep your feet still!
Great CD. Good one to get your feet moving. If you like the blues you will love this CD.

laurence cooper

Good blues slide and a good voice-like Don't You Play No Rhumba and I Gotta Drive:)

Michael Lynes

Great CD!!
This is a great CD. If you like Delbert McClinton, you'll like this CD. Pat Coast knows what he's doing with a guitar.
