With a deep love for classic country music, The Cory Grinder Band writes original honky tonk tunes for those who love that old hillbilly sound. Cory, from Akron, Ohio leads the group playing rhythm guitar, fiddle, and singing with pedal steel/electric guitar player Stephen “Tebbs” Karney. Gluing the group together is veteran bass player, Jason Willis. Between them the members of the band have quite a bit of experience playing for local venues (House of Blues, Beachland Ballroom) and national programs (NPR’s “On Point,“ SXSW.) Their entertaining live performances are full of fun, upbeat songs and the silly antics of the band. Always trying to have a good time, it’s not unusual to see the group switching around instruments and bringing guests into the fold. The Cory Grinder Band are anticipating the release of their first album in early 2018.
