Who is Kory Gibbs?

Eighteen-year-old rock guitarist Kory Gibbs was born and raised in Amador County. Kory played the guitar for fun, teaching himself through videos available on YouTube until the age of 10 when he started street performing. He would travel to Sacramento, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, along with many other places, to earn enough money to upgrade his equipment. He built his first band and did his first show, at age 12, at the Pine Grove Schoolhouse in 2012. Kory has opened shows for Dizzy Reed from Guns N’ Roses, Kansas, Johnny Winter, Pat Travers, the Tubes, LA Guns and more, adding to over 100 shows that Kory has done, from little to big. “I most enjoyed opening up for Dizzy Reed from Guns N’ Roses at the Whisky a GoGo because of the history of the venue and I’ve always loved Guns N’ Roses, so opening for a member of their band was a huge accomplishment for me, and I feel we did a great show that night.” Kory headlined two of his own sold out shows at the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort, which led to him recording his first 5 song EP with Grammy Award winning producer Bob Kulick, who was the brother of the guitar player in the band Kiss. To date, Kory has 30 original songs and he continues to grow in his profession. His goal and dream has always been to be a lead guitarist in an 80’s style Rock N’ Roll band.
