Count's 77 is a hard Workin For The Man - Counts 77 - Counts 77 band from Las VegasNevada. Unlike what many fans believe, Count's 77 was formed before Danny Koker's role in Counting Cars was established.
The Count's father also named Danny Kokerwho was the baritone vocalist and keyboardist for the Cathedral Quarteta well-known southern gospel group, influenced his son from a young age to appreciate music. These weekly sessions were, and still are, headed by Count's 77 guitarist Jony Zito. Koker, as owner of the club, would occasionally come on stage and sing. One night, Koker, Zito, Curtis, Barnes, and Disibio - all current members except Tommy Paris - shared the stage and felt instant chemistry.
Koker remembers, "it just felt real. It felt great. Counting Cars debuted in August and has completed its seventh season. The reality TV show chronicles the daily happenings at Count's Kustoms, a Las Vegas automobile restoration and customization company owned and operated by Koker. While the Count's new television prominence did not lead to the band's forming, it gives Count's 77 a wide-reaching platform and allows the band to reach millions of viewers across the world when they are featured on the show.
Cast members of the TV show, most notably Kustoms airbrush artist Horny Mike, have made appearances at Count's 77 performances, with Koker's show and band symbiotically co-promoting one another.
