Listen to what others are saying about Coffee and Cliff!
After coming out of retirement in 2015, Coffee Butler and Cliff Sawyer have sold out five shows at the Key west Theater.
The Key West Citizen’s Rob O’Neal commented this group was a Key West version of the Buena Vista Social Club, referring to the 1997 Cuban phenomena.
This soulful album was released on Coffee Butler’s 90th Birthday!
Their old school soulful music is performed with grace and passion. Cliff Sawyer’s vocals have been compared to Johnny Mathis and Coffee Butler has been nicknamed the Key West Louis Armstrong. This album is the result of a perfect storm of talented musicians, gifted vocalists, and award-winning producer, all giving every ounce of talent.
These two life-long friends performed together frequently throughout their years. They played a steady gig for almost 20 years at Little Palm Island. Cliff would often sit in with Coffee Butler at his famous Hukilau gig. This is their first recording together. Coffee retired from performing in 2005, fittingly at a Cliff Sawyer concert at the Tennessee Williams Theater.
Credits for this album include Mrs. Sara Sands Butler and Mrs. Naomi Saunders Sawyer for giving us these two phenomenal Key West talents and fittingly the title song “A Mother’s Love”.
