Becky Kotter has been performing her original music around Anchorage, AK since 2017. She met Matt Chicklo while performing at Hard Rock Cafe, and soon he began to accompany her on occasion. Becky was invited to put together a band for a one time performance at the annual Arctic Valley Summer Jam, and Matt recommended Lance Howard, whom he had jammed with late summer nights on downtown’s 4th Ave.
Following the Arctic Valley show, Becky, Matt, and Lance continued to play together and became Becky Kotter & Co. The trio practiced together often on the rooftop of 49th State Brewing Company to the delight of patrons expecting Becky’s regular solo shows. BK&Co. played their first official gig at the former Eagle River Alehouse on September 1, 2018. Since then, they’ve become regulars around Anchorage and surrounding communities, played at Salmonfest in 2019, and are in the process of recording their first album under their new band name, Zen Trembles.
