John Corabi Played an Accoustic Set at the Open Chord All Things Music Venue Recently to a bunch of Eager Fans.
John Corabi Former Singer for Motley Crue/ The Dead Daises and Scream. Is one of the Most Talented singers in The Hard Rock World. John Has a very distinctive voice and his song writing is incredible. In early 2006 John Wrote songs in Nashville for some of country music Biggest artists. Presently John is Doing an accoustic tour and I believe he is working on a new album to be released by Rat Pak Records.
Opening the show was NightFly a local Female fronted post grunge/ Alt Rock band doing a full set of original songs and ending with a cover of one of their favorite bands The Foo Fighters. They Did a Fantastic Job priming the audience for the evening. members include Ella Marston Guitar/Lead Vocals, Dillon Bunn Guitar, Gabe Carrasco Bass and Richard Hodges Drums/ Backup vocals. Great Set! This Girl can sing! and Rock the guitar! I Recommend them!
Up Next was Three piece local Hard Rock/ Metal band from Knoxville called Seven Year Sideshow. They kept the party going with their Hard Rocking set. They had a pretty good following too .
lots of fans wearing their T-shirts.
Then came time for John Corabi. All the drums and instruments were removed and it was set up for John and his accoustic set. He Took the stage and sat on a stool and Told Stories along with some songs. This Guy can tell a story! He is Fantastic! Telling stories about his days with The Biggest stars. Having the fans laughing and singing along to songs like Kiss -Hard Luck Woman, Hooligans Holiday. Among others. Even engaging in conversation with a kid in the audience who asked him who are you ? which was hilarious with the back and forth between the two. It was a very Fun Night! after the show fans got to meet John and got him to sign their Cds and Merchandise he had or they had brought with them. Everyone had a great time and He wants to come back and the fans want him to come back too. I heard that alot that night.
