In the second leg of his farewell tour, Corey is calling on old friends Brian Fitzgerald and the local band Special Delivery Band to bring their r&b, funk and old school hip hop badassnesses.
Brian Fitzy is from the Phliadelphia area and is a professional musician who specializes in loop station - he plays just about every instrument around and loops them with a computer device that helps me build the music. He and Corey met while he was gigging at World Cafe Live at The Queen a few years back and Corey was behind the bar. They hit it off when Corey started falling out to Brian playing and a couple of years later Brian opened for Corey's first sold out Rick James Tribute show. Since, they have been trying to work with each other in one capacity or another but could never seem meet schedules. Corey made it a point to get Brian involved considering the circumstances and VOILA, some serious fun will surely be had.
Special Delivery featuring Jim Miller, Lew Indellini, Dave Tigue, Michael Feuda is a local band that specializes in Funk, Rock, Motown and soul covers. By happenstance, Jim and Lew are both personal friends of Corey's and he and Jim go way back to the old Zanzibar Blue days where the two met. They have invited Corey on stage to cover James Brown, Rick James and Prince on a couple of occasions in the past with tremendous audience reception and are looking to send him off in grand style in a night that will surely be remembered for a long, long time.
