Cory Grinder and the Playboy Scouts are on the move…




“On my honor I will do my duty to Two Step Dancers and Honky Tonkers everywhere.” Cory Grinder learned his way around country music playing fiddle on street corners, at flea markets, and of course honky tonks. Grinder started his own band in 2016 when multiple hillbilly groups he played fiddle with fizzled out. Along with some other displaced musicians from these bands, The Cory Grinder Band was formed. Tebbs Karney, provides the silky, smooth sounds of the pedal steel which drives the group along with strong harmony vocals. The low end is expertly handled by Joe Wolfe on bass and Bee Roberts is the band’s tight drummer. The band also often features the phenomenal Anthony Papaleo on electric guitar. Leading the group on rhythm guitar, Cory Grinder writes original country tunes influenced by favorites like Merle Haggard, Roger Miller, and Willie Nelson. 2018 saw the release of their first album, “Cahoots and Other Favorites,” recorded with Grammy and Emmy nominated producer, David Mayfield. Since then, the band has taken to the road and toured through Nashville, Pittsburgh, New Orleans, Chicago, Texas, North Carolina, Detroit, and more. They are affectionately known for their blue bus and encouraging others to join their troop. The band has an exciting live show that is also quite adaptable to the setting. They fit very well playing dancehalls for two steppers, but aren’t afraid to turn it up at a rowdy bar gig. Simply put, the band aims to please. Performance highlights include featuring Kenny Vaughan from Marty Stuart’s Fabulous Superlatives on guitar for a Nashville show; plus Dale Watson invited them to perform as his backing band for a set at legendary Texas venues The Broken Spoke and Continental Club. At the end of 2019, Tebbs and Grinder, of The Playboy Scouts released their instrumental Christmas album, “Silver & Gold, Fiddle & Steel.” A collection of classic Christmas songs with a country spin performed on fiddle and pedal steel. Always seeking fun new challenges, the band has also started doing tribute shows to the band Ween, performing “Twelve Golden Country Greats” and also doing heavier, rock material from Ween’s catalog that fans have really loved! In 2020 despite multiple national tours being cancelled for the band, a five song EP was put out in May as a teaser for the release of their next full length, original album, “Honky Tonkin Beauty Supreme.” That album is set to come out June 11, 2021 and they are touring to support its release. Lots of exciting things are coming for these honky tonkers so join The Playboy Scouts and GET YOUR BADGES!
