Danny Koker Bio
Danny Koker (Danny “The Count” Koker) born Daniel Nicholas Koker II, is the owner of Count’s Kustoms and a talented vocalist. He was born on January 5, 1964 in Cleveland, Ohio. He grew up in Cleveland and Detroit with family blood lines that gifted him with his stellar vocal stylings and with the innate love of all things automotive.
He is the son of the late Daniel Nicholas Koker I (“Danny Koker”). His father worked as a musician, singer, composer, conductor and arranger in many quartets and bands such as: Foggy River Boys, Weatherford Quartet, The Cathedral Quartet, Oak Ridge Boys, CL Franklin, Mahalia Jackson, The Rex Humbard Family Singers and The Koker Family Singers.
Having grown up with a father (Daniel Koker Sr.) that excelled as a musician, singer and composer, it is no wonder that the talented vocalist followed in the same footsteps. With such an inspirational role model at the helm of his education into the music industry Koker was a natural born entertainer performing before audiences on-stage at Carnegie Hall from the tender age of 11.
Danny fell in love with automobiles during his early years in Michigan and Ohio, where his father worked as an executive for the Ford Motor Company. He credits his dad for igniting his burning, lifelong passion when he gave him his first motorcycle at only eight years old. Danny taught himself to take it apart and put it back together again, a hobby he relentlessly pursued when he wasn’t touring the world with his uncle’s Southern gospel group, the Rex Humbard Singers.
Danny first became known on the Sin City scene hosting a cable TV show, Saturday Fright at the Movies. Using a patchy Eastern European accent copied from his immigrant grandparents, he introduced classic horror movies as a vampire Elvis, decked out in cape, aviators and sipping from a goblet of blood. It’s been years since Danny portrayed the Count Cool Rider character he created for the show, but the nickname stuck and now lends itself to the dealership he acquired after turning his hobby into a full time business.
As the owner of Count’s Kustoms, Danny Koker is the creative force behind each project leaving his Las Vegas-based hotrod and chopper shop. He customises choppers, hot rods and muscle cars for highway obsessed aficionados. With the help of his talented team, Danny ‘pimps out’ the vintage rides and sells them on in a hurry.
He owns a local tattoo parlour and The Count’s Vamp’d Rock Bar and Grill, which was first opened with Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe as a testament to their mutual love of dirty rock ‘n’ roll. Having since become the sole proprietor, Danny himself frequently performs there with his band Count 77, growling through covers from the likes of Black Sabbath and The Doors.
