"Watcher of the Skies"
to meticulously recreating the timeless music of GENESIS
In 1985, Robbie Cooper started performing covers of the music he
loved, the music of early Genesis. As a founding member
of the very popular Toronto based Genesis tribute band, Over the
Garden Wall, Robbie Cooper helped pave the way for other Genesis
cover bands to follow. After 10 very successful years with
Over the Garden Wall, Robbie relocated to Utica, New York and formed
the Genesis tribute band Seconds Out. Cooper remains
front-man of this band, that still tours for it's loyal following in
the New York state area and Cleveland, Ohio. In the classic
style of early Genesis live performances, Robbie uses
elaborate costumes, stage make-up and assorted props, creating a
multi-media event and delighting audiences with his strong and solid
vocals that hold an uncanny likeness to Peter Gabriel and
"The Genesis sound is nicely recreated ... like the ending
of Dance on a Volcano, they even outdo the original." - Tim
am amazed by the talent ... this is not just a note-for-note
tribute. The band really manages to re-create the feel of the
original songs. Singing, guitar work, the rhythm section ...
simply right on the money. It is not an exaggeration to
say that the members of Genesis probably couldn't do it any
better themselves." - Brian Kellahur
I can say is WOW! The band sounds so incredibly close to
Genesis, it's spooky."
(06 April 2003) "Seconds Out is a classic Genesis tribute
band. Vocal work, instrumental arrangements,
production ... are all excellent ... their representation of
Genesis' material is outstanding..."
