Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band (Minneapolis, MN) are a mainstay of the Twin Cities rock ’n roll music scene and are, at this point, dangerously close to achieving "veteran" status.
Formed in 2010 by Nato (Used Kids, Modern Machines) and drummer Mike Cranberry (The Manix), the band has released a number of EPs and two full-length albums: Promises To Delivery (2013) and Live At Grumpy's (2016). They perform a style of high-energy punk rock shot through with a roots-of-rock 'n roll drive. They've toured nationally a few times, but are constantly gigging around the Upper Midwest.
Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band adhere to a two part code:
1. Be excellent to each other
2. Play loud!
Their new album, Flyover, is out November 15, 2019 on Don Giovanni Records.Tracklist:
