Cool Sounds performs high-quality music that connects with people from all generations and backgrounds.
Perry and his group regularly perform for high-profile events such as The Food and Wine Show, the St. Paul Chamber of Commerce Honors Gala, the City Page's Cocktailian and for corporations including Fortune 500 companies (Target, Dairy Queen, CH Robinson). He has also played at music festivals in Germany, Chicago, and Minneapolis, at four-star hotels, and many local event centers and country clubs. He has accompanied top local artists as well as national acts such as the Drifters and Marvelettes.
