Corey Dennison Band

4:30pm on the Bandshell Stage

Formed in 2013, The Corey Dennison Band has become a favorite at Chicago blues venues, including twice weekly shows at Kingston Mines. Led by Corey’s soulful voice and muscular guitar, the band has released 2 cd’s, 2013’s “Live in Chicago”, and their self titled debut, “Corey Dennison Band”, in 2016 on Delmark Records.

Corey was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, spending time in Tennessee and Georgia. He received his first guitar at age 6, and as a young boy, Corey heard the powerful and soulful sounds of the blues on late night radio, and was hooked on the music.

Corey found his musical calling while hanging out with his harp playing uncle, who would sneak him into the clubs where he saw some of the greatest blues cats of all time, Albert King, Albert Collins, and Junior Wells.
