In addition to being a reality TV star, mechanic, and entrepreneur, Danny Koker is a musician.

He was Danial Nicholas Koker II in 1964, in Cleveland, Ohio. His background is quite unlikely, as he was raised in a religious Christian family and is even an ordained minister in their church.

Danny Koker is a self-taught mechanic and musician who started performing at the Carnegie Hall when he was only 11 years old. Apparently, he acquired his mechanical skills and musical talents from his father, who was a composer for several singing groups. His father also gifted Danny a car when he was eight while working at Ford Motors.

Danny began appearing on his father’s Saturday Fright at the Movies show on Channel 33 in 1990 as the Count Cool Rider. But he attained his real fame with his appearance on the Rick Harrison family’s Pawn Stars TV show in 2010.

He was visiting the History Channel’s show as a friend after selling a 1968 Mustang Fastback to Harrison. Danny was then featured in more series, including The EagleCounts 77, and Counts Kustom as a hobby. But it was that hobby that turned into a serious business, developing into one of the country’s leading auto customization shops. It specializes in paint jobs, upholstery, frame build-ups, and other related services.

Counting Cars began airing on August 13, 2012 and is now on its 10th season and has has run a total of 180 episodes so far.
