Hexbelt w/ Corty Byron
A night of soulful rock and roll from some local Central PA greats
July 10, 2014 · 9:00pm
It’s a night of soulful rock ‘n’ roll with York-based Hexbelt and Lancaster-based singer/songwriter Corty Byron.
Hexbelt has the ability to cut across political, social, and economic boundaries to reach the masses. A peer in a crowd at a Hexbelt show would reveal a cross section of society, with baby boomers, neo-hippies, punks, blue collars, yuppies and the like; all jamming together as one. Hexbelt truly is a unique band in an age of increasingly generic modern music.
Penman /singer /guitarist Dann Ottemiller, guitarist Mike Couch, drummer Tony Aguirre, bassist Neal Kreider, and sound engineer Kenny Dunlap.
At 28 years old, guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Corty Byron has been active as a musician for over a decade. He released two solo projects (2011‘s Histrionic EP & 2010‘s Endless North), opened for/performed with artists like Gregg Allman, The Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason, Bruce Hornsby, The Gin Blossoms, Blackberry Smoke, Hot Tuna, Jimmy Vivino…. and has become a fixture of his hometown Central Pennsylvania music scene, as well as being a seasoned road hound, gigging his way from Manhattan to Memphis, Austin to Vegas and all points in between. In late 2011 Corty relocated to Venice, CA, and spent the following year performing up and down the coast and across the state, including venues such as The Viper Room, House Of Blues and Saint Rocke. His style has shifted from swampy vintage rock and soulful acoustic based Americana to song driven psychedelic indie pop/rock. Work has already begun on an upcoming full length album, that will feature all new original material written in the past year while on the road and living in California.
