Cory McDaniel is a creative singer, song writer, guitarist and veteran entertainer.
Still performing with long time friend and bassist Dale Bohren, The Tremors continue to explore new musical realms, incorporating unusual instrumentation into their solid foundation of blues-like, jazz-like hard to categorize repertoire. A great example is the 2010 live recordings with five French horns or the performances with the NCHS Guitar Ensemble featuring over thirty acoustic guitarists.
His solo career was launched by a request from German promoter Wolfgang Pieker to play as a single performer at the 2005 Mettmann Blues Week in Germany. A music festival the Tremors regularly attend.
The Gone Johnson Revue was created when a trip to the Northwest turned into the reuniting of old band mates from his Seattle days. They have since completed several Northwest tours and even made an appearance in Wyoming to support the 12-24 Club’s 2009 Recovery Rally. While in Casper Wyoming they recorded their first CD.
An invite from guitarist Jody Taylor to assemble a working Wyoming band produced The Crew. Bass player and instigator Amy Gieske prompted The Crew to be back-up band for world class entertainers Sax Gordon Beadle and Jeff Finlin with other guest artists in the works.
Performing, creating and travel are the goals with the motto:
“If you ain’t having fun you ain’t having nuthin’ at all!”
