Cory Wong might just be your new favorite guitar player.

The Minneapolis-based musician has put in his time as a versatile composer, arranger, producer, and collaborator. Most well known as the guitar player with the fast-rising funk band Vulfpeck; he’s also been seen playing alongside the likes of Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Bootsy Collins.


His expert playing and diverse influences have kept him in demand around the world and around the clock, but he has finally jumped into the spotlight with his own band. Cory’s remarkable synthesis of the MPLS SOUND with his own brand of funky multimedia and unique visual aesthetic has reached its apex with this forthcoming tour, which finds his Stratocaster chops spotlighted amongst the expert production, both video and audio. Produced in Minneapolis, the album tracks were recorded simultaneously with the footage that goes on to form the remarkable centerpiece of the Cory Wong visual experience.

His live show is an experience of masterful musicianship and hilarious stage antics that will simultaneously make you feel motivated and immersed in a multimedia world of comedy.

The Warsaw Poland Brothers find themselves in a good position with the fourth resurgence of Ska music. This time with refined dedication toward the music complemented by a new generation of fans.

The Warsaw Poland Bros. performed their original song “Rude Girl” on the Sony Gameshow Network’s “Extreme Gong Show.” This comical 1998 performance with it’s powerfully tight delivery is preserved on Youtube.

After their appearance on the Gong Show a movie was made about the groups trombonist Monkey Bone. Sadly they did not use the band’s title track “Monkey Bone.” The movie staring Brendon Fraser and Woopie Goldberg went on to poor reviews and sells.

Around the year 2000 the WPB were voted one of Jam Base's top 10 touring bands. The band had a yearly roster of over 300 shows for 20 years. Add sixteen years to that and the brothers can boast just shy of 7,000 shows.

The Brothers or the WPB have played just about everywhere with several notable artist in most of North America and Hawaii. They have released several nationally distributed cd’s. Their most notable and quintessential Ska disc is the powerful “Battle Ska Galactica.” It went on to sell over 100,000 copies with the help of Caroline Records in the late 90’s.

In the years between 2005 and 2010 the Warsaw Poland Brothers were paired by Jagermeister on national tours as direct support for Pennywise, Pepper and Slightly Stupid.

With the current popularity of Ska, the Brothers have found themselves on top again. The groups longevity and the strength of their songs have elevated their status as founders of “Third Wave.” This welcomed new status has put them back in front of sizable audience in festivals and as support for nationals.

When Warsaw comes to town, you'll be dancing, drinking, and partying with a zeal you never knew you had.

Na zdrowie! Cheers!
