Korupt- Still rocking it out!
30 years of Rock
The band Korupt originally formed back in 1982 in the dawn of the "big hair bands" era. Over the years the faces of the band has changed, currently leaving 3 of its original members left. Recently Lou Tonson, a former guitarist for the band passed away at age 45.
The band has preformed at such venues as Hammerjacks, Crossroads Tavern, M3 Rock Festival, and will be preforming at the Island Bay Day Festival on Oct 15.
The band is not to be mistaken as a normal cover band though. You can hear classics from Iron Maiden and Metallica at the concerts, but also you will hear originals that will floor you!
The intensity of a Korupt show is almost Palpable in intensity. The whole venue feels as if it is rocking along with the band as the building almost shakes.
Recently on September 15-16 at Crossroads Tavern in Glen Burnie they played 2 amazing shows! The 16th was the Taverns 60th anniversary. Songs such as "Seek and Destroy" and "RagTop" made the crowds go wild. They were very interactive with the crowd as well, making for just that much better of an experience. They also are not afraid to sit down with the fans outside and relax after a show like just another patron of the place.
They are one amazing band and are worth catching if you get a chance to be near one of their gigs. They upcoming schedule includes:
