Corey Denison Band - The Corey Dennison Band has become a favorite at Chicago music venues, including twice-weekly appearances at Kingston Mines. Led by Corey Dennison's soulful voice and muscular guitar, the band released its self-titled studio debut for the legendary Denmark Records in 2016 after honing 13 original songs night after night on the bandstand. Critics and radio polls responded favorable with glowing reviews and constant worldwide airplay. Nominations followed suit. Their followup album "Night After Night" further solidified the band's status on the leading edge of Chicago blues, seamlessly weaving soul and funk into another critically-acclaimed release. The strength of the band’s repertoire is matched only by the charisma of the stage show; it’s not uncommon to see Corey belting out the blues, unamplified, in the heart of the audience while the band steps in time to the groove. It’s no novelty for these musicians and entertainers, however, it’s exactly where they want to be.
