Vulfpeck fans, attention! Cory Wong might just be your favorite new guitar player. The Minneapolis-based musician has worked alongside The Blind Boys of Alabama, Questlove, Bootsy Collins and is currently one of the founding members of fast-rising funk band Vulfpeck. Wong’s playing is inspired by local guitar legends Prince and Dean Magraw, as well as Jeff Beck and Pat Metheny. However, it is on his album that Wong hones his own voice as a musician. The record was composed and produced with a massive all-star cast of featured musicians, including Antwaun Stanley, Cody Fry, Steve Goold and others. Expect catchy melodies, deep funk grooves and a little splash of humor. MJAZZ18 is Cory’s debut concert in The Netherlands.
Cory Wong (guitar/vox/bandleader); Kevin Gastonguay (keyboards); Petar Janjic (drums);
