Some very special shows are coming up for The Apple Stompers in the next couple months. The band’s fiddle player, Cory Grinder, is working on his debut solo album to be released later this year and the boys are going to be playing a couple cool shows where Cory takes the reigns(and the guitar.) Johnny Miller will be featured on electric guitar as he starts to cover new terrain in his impressive multi-instrumental endeavors and the truly talented Jason Willis will be playing both Upright and Electric Bass with the group.
British Invasion! — Feb. 19th <> 9 PM -11 PM <> Zephyr Pub (Downtown Kent, OH)
First off, they will be tapping into some music they’ve loved for a long time when they play Kent, Ohio’s “Beatles Fest!” The Apple Stompers will perform Beatles, Stones and more British Invasion music along with a few tunes those bands were inspired by.
Akron Honky Tonkin’ — Apr. 2nd <> 10:30 PM <> Annabell’s (Akron, OH)
