The Core is a local band out of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. We have been on hiatus for a bit; however, we are back and excited to get out and play some blues. We have an awesome set of musicians; Mark Eitel lead vocals, is a native of Cincinnati who is well known for his soulful blues tones. Mike Brumback, on lead guitar, is a big fan of the blues and a great lead guitar player out of Cincinnati. Pat Eder, keys and harp, also out of Cincinnati, a talented keyboard and harmonica player, makes those blues songs come to life. Mark Duncan adds the bottom line with his blues groove on electric bass. Mark is out of Northern Kentucky and brings a strong knowledge of the blues the way the blues should be played. Jerry Toms, another Northern Kentucky resident, drives that beat on drums, completing the rhythm section. Last but not least; Carolyn Toms, with backup and some lead vocals, adds a touch of class and beauty to our merry band of players.
The Core plays a variety of music; however, our true calling is the old school blues. We pride ourselves in playing the old, true blues artists and also work on some original tunes to further set us apart from other blues band. We also cover some popular classic rock just to spice things up a bit.
