Local Band, Cory Drive, Performing Saturday at Town Green Park in Old Bowie

Cory Drive performs at the 9:30 Club in D.C., February, 2013
Cory Drive, an energetic group of young musicians with Bowie roots, will be performing a free outdoor concert on Saturday, July 13th from 2-4pm in Town Green Park in Old Bowie.  The band's playlist includes some original songs like the hard rocking Out of Nowhere and Give Me a Memory, as well as cover songs by groups such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Foo Fighters.

Cory Drive performs regularly in the D.C./Baltimore region, including past performances at the 9:30 Club in D.C., the Baltimore Soundstage, the Greenbelt Labor Day Festival, Bowiefest, Fenton Street Market in Silver Spring and locally at the Old Bowie Town Grille.  The band was a finalist in the 2013 Baltimore Battle of the Bands.

The group is looking forward to playing in front of a hometown crowd this Saturday.  "We'll always be grateful for the support we've received from the Bowie community," said Bobby Cento, one of the band's founding members.  "It's especially meaningful to offer a free concert within shouting distance of the Old Bowie Town Grille, a big-time supporter of Cory Drive and the local music scene."

The band's name - and primary practice location
Cory Drive was formed in 2007 by a group of talented young musicians from St. Pius X Regional School.  The band features Bowie natives Bobby and Ben Cento on drums and bass guitar, Lucas Delgado on vocals; Matt Arceo on guitar and Anthony Policelli on rhythm guitar and background vocals.  They'll be joined this weekend by guitarist Gabe Castro and vocalist/guitarist Matt Ratcliffe, high school classmates of the other band members.

Cory Drive will also be performing Sunday, July 21 at the Union Jack in Annapolis.
