He performs both fully acoustic and with a looping pedal, weaving guitar, percussion, and sweet vocals together to create a captivating one-man band performance. His repertoire includes classics (The Beatles, Michael Jackson, etc.), Top 40 hits from the 80s through today, and his original music. Beyond his musical abilities, Corey is known for his professionalism and friendly demeanor.
Corey is amazing. We asked Corey to play several roles at our wedding. We wanted someone who could both be a live singing guitarist as well as a DJ and MC. There are not enough stars in this review to describe the job Corey did. Corey is awesome. For the several months leading up to the wedding he was extremely professional and would keep in contact to answer any questions we had. From day 1 he truly cared about every little detail and wanted to ensure our day was perfect. We were incredibly impressed with his professionalism, enthusiasm, and general caring he showed leading up to the event. And once at the wedding he was an absolute star. He showed up extremely prepared and was extremely diligent and wanted to make the night perfect. And he did! While generally only a singer- he wore several hats at our wedding and excelled at all. The guests loved him. Not only is he an awesome singer who grabs everyone's attention, he did an awesome job doubling as an MC and DJ of our wedding. He even did a surprise live song with my husband who he helped coordinate with by playing the guitar while my husband song. I would recommend Corey to everyone and anyone, you will not find anyone better.
Response from Corey Lewin:
Wow! Thanks for the incredibly kind words, Keara! It was my pleasure to play at your wedding and I'm thrilled that I could help make the evening so special.
We hired Corey for a store event / party, and he was great. Punctual, friendly, great attitude and - most importantly - very talented! He sang and played guitar for a four hour evening, and we overheard many wonderful comments. I would definitely hire him again, and recommend to all!
Corey played at my wife's 30'th bday party for a group of 40 people and was spectacular. Extremely personable and amazing voice with great music selections. Will definitely hire Corey for future events.
Corey was so quick to respond when I first contacted him. He provided entertainment for a casual outdoor party at our home and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. It was such a nice touch to have live music. When we have another party, I will certainly give Corey a call.
Response from Corey Lewin:
Thanks so much for the kind words, Andrea! It was a pleasure playing at your party. You and your family were all so kind. Hope we can work together again in the future! :)
When we contacted Corey about performing at our event, he responded immediately and was extremely helpful and friendly. He went above and beyond in accommodating our requests and answering our questions. He is clearly very conscientious and would make any event entertaining and fun. (Unfortunately, we were unable to book Corey in the end because of a change in our schedule but we would definitely consider him for future events!)
Response from Corey Lewin:
Thanks so much for the wonderful words, Kelsey! Sorry it didn't work out this time, but I certainly hope we can make something happen in the future!
Did a great job and played the perfect music for our event! Super friendly! Look forward to having him at our next event

Additional Booking Notes
I can provide a full P.A. sound system. I require only an electrical outlet and enough space to set up my equipment (roughly 7ft x 7ft for full P.A. and looper shows or less for acoustic only). I would also request a small table and either a stool or armless chair.
