On his path towards the spotlight, Kory has taken the appropriate strides to get him there. Although he says the hardest obstacle of a band is finding great reliable band members, it is an obstacle that had to be tackled. He played with his first band a year ago (2012) and the rest – as they say – is history.
Along with his strong band, so far he has accomplished successfully playing at local venues such as Sloughhouse, BG’s, Pine Cove Tavern, Theresa’s Restaurant, Helwig Winery, and the Amador County Fair, to name a few. He’s even gone as far as to play with John Lee Hooker Jr. at the Blues and Bones Festival in Angles Camp, California this past summer.
Regardless of his steady rise to success, Kory keeps it humble. He leaves his fans with this tidbit of advice, “Just practice a lot and let God lead the way.” Hitting two birds with one store, he gets practice in while making extra money on the side. He and his band can be found playing the blues on the streets of Old Sacramento, Angles Camp, West Point, San Francisco Boardwalk, Murphy’s or miscellaneous festivals in the surrounding area. Success and fame don’t always come easy, and not without trying. Kory is making sure to put forth his due diligence to get there.
