Cory M. Coons bringing Retrospective to local venue
Friday, February 12th, 2010
MORRISBURG Ten years of recording, seemed like a good time to celebrate the work of Cory M. Coons and The Tycoons Band.
Well known locally, Coons is a writer, performer and recording artist, originally from South Mountain.
The CD celebrating the recording efforts of Coons and The Tycoons Band, entitled Retrospective is available at various retail locations throughout the region.
Coons will play a special lunchtime acoustic show at one of those retail locations, The Basket Case in Morrisburg, on Sat., Feb., 13 from about noon until 1 p.m.
Retrospective, has 20 tracks, including one new release, Every Time I Think About You.
Retrospective also includes crowd pleasing tracks like Crumbs and other popular tracks along with different, previously unreleased studio outtakes.
In 10 years, five CDs have been released under the Cory M. Coons and The Tycoons Band titles.
Coons sees Retrospective as a great opportunity for people to pick up his and the group’s best work in one package.
Each song has a different story to share, said Coons. I like to tell stories that touch people.
Since the work ranges from the intimate nature of acoustics to the showmanship of being part of a band, Coons has worked to showcase both aspects in this Retrospective package.
This CD is not an end, just a culmination of work, said Coons.
Looking to the future, He hopes that his work with Gary LaBarr, of Niagara Atlantic Entertainment Group, on his new track will help expand distribution and he said that he may even shoot a video for one of the tracks.
Coons says their style of music is a mix of rock and pop. I would say southern rock, with a little folk rock.
In addition to the Feb., 13 lunch hour show, Coons has a number of small events planned. He will be part of the Feb., 20 show at the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage and has a show planned in March at Boomers Sports Bar in Prescott.
