CORKY LAING plays MOUNTAIN
CORKY LAING (CAN) is a drummer, songwriter, singer and a raconteur. He is best
known as the drummer of the legendary bands Mountain (1969-) and West, Bruce &
Laing (1973-75). Mountain toured and recorded on and off until 2010.
In the late 70s Corky released his solo album “Making it on the Streets” that is often cited
as an overlooked pioneer of AOR. In the early eighties Corky recorded with an indie
band called the Mix and at the end of 1990s he got together with Noel Redding (Jimi
Hendrix’s Experience) and Eric Schenkman (Spin Doctors) to form the band Cork.
In the 90s Corky worked for several years as the vice president, A&R, of Polygram
Records, Canada. During that time he produced bands like Men Without Hats and
Bootsauce. He also had his own radio show, Under the Rock, in Canada, has published an
anecdotal road-stories book, Stick it! and has his one-man show, The Best Seat in the
House, a humorous autobiographical production that combines storytelling and music.
During the past couple of years Corky has been busy with Playing God: The Rock Opera –
a critically acclaimed collaboration with two Finnish philosophers. In 2014 he was
awarded the Bonzo Bash Legend Award (following Bill Ward, Carmine Appice and Peter
Criss). Corky performs frequently and from 2015 onwards he has been touring across
Europe and the US with CORKY LAING plays MOUNTAIN.

Hailing from Los Angeles, Dream Club are a group of friends who celebrate the spirit of
their hometown and it's rich musical history by playing California Rock thick with 3-part
harmonies, sun drenched melodies, psychedelic jams and haunting lyrics. Evoking the
spirits of the canyons, beaches, hills, valleys and alleys; hook-filled tunes stretch out
into 70’s workouts, and whether you’re listening on a set of headphones or standing in
the crowd, it’s sure to have you humming along and dancing like no one is watching.
Formed in 2013 when two friends got together to catch up and ended up writing 3
songs, friends were enlisted, late-night jams followed, and before they knew it, a band
was born. After a few residencies in Ojai, CA, they played shows in Venice Beach, Echo
Park, Indio, CA, then retreated home to record their debut, self-titled album.
Comprised of local music luminaries from acts such as The Green And Yellow TV, She
Wants Revenge, American Hi-Fi, Tape, and The Parallelograms, Dream Club will have
you feeling California, no matter where you’re at.
