Response on social media was swift.
Brian Cober was one of the first guys to ever get me on stage as well as introducing to me to Terry Wilkins, who would become my musical partner in crime. Brian was truly a one of kind musician who had a unique and immediately recognizable voice on the instrument. I owe a lot of who I am and what I do musically to Brian. Thank you for for the encouragement and inspiration through the years, I am grateful to have known you. Rest easy, see you on the other side.
Truly unique sound and approach to guitar playing and a heck of a nice man.Frank Cosentino
