Much of 2013 has yet to be painted, but there are already a couple of things to be covered now, three months in. First of all, Classic Current is still very much alive. The group has been moderate with it's commitments, due to busy college schedules throughout the school year, but it promises a much more active summer!
Additionally, with excitement, Chris has announced his return to the drum throne. He has been rehearsing for the past few months with a new group that will be known as "Open Fields." The group will make their debut on March 28th at The Rev Room in downtown Little Rock. It consists of Preston Whittenburg (guitar), Blake Lefler (keys), Megan Michelle (bass), and Chris (drums).
The biggest common denominator in this band is a great admiration for the work of The Beatles. As such, the group has been working diligently to blend all four voices in four-part harmony. To be sure, a bright future is the forecast for this new group, so don't miss your opportunity to be among the first in their fanbase!
In 2012, the Kordsmeier brothers decided to join forces with their very talented cousin, Andrea Eades, to form a group that electrifies a broad spectrum of musical hits, both classic and current. They thought, for simplicity's sake, "Why not call it what it is?" and landed decisively on the name "Classic Current" for their new configuration.
Andrea brings to the stage far more than just a beautiful personage. She has been blessed with a voice that is truly mesmerizing, and from a young age, she applied herself diligently to develop the power and control needed to set herself apart artistically. Even prior to her graduation from high school, Eades was winning competitions against individuals and groups who had spent decades of work in the industry. One such competition earned her a spot on the stage of the state fair in her junior year.
Classic Current is a great entertainment solution for wedding receptions, private parties, campus/Greek functions, and corporate events. Since the majority of their outings are currently private, you will not want to miss the rare opportunity to catch them at JJ's, Michelangelo's, or any of the other public venues where they appear.
Chris Kordsmeier has been a fixture for several years now in the central Arkansas music scene. Upon his drum throne primarily, he has accompanied many well-received acts, including Natural State, The Safe and Sounds, Don't Stop Please, Poor Boy Tango, and Kris Allen. Through his experiences with these groups, Chris opened for several touring acts (both national and international), including Cloud Cult, Colour Revolt, Ryan Bingham, and Hill Country Revue. In true Dave Grohl fashion, this multi-instrumentalist has decided now is the time to rise and step into the spotlight.
A natural front-man, Kordsmeier always manages to put forth an energetic & fun-filled performance. In this early stage of his transition back into the scene, he has stuck primarily to the venues that prefer cover songs. He draws from a bank of over six hours worth of material enabling him to put on a show completely catered to the needs of whichever demographic happens to be present on any given night.
Meanwhile, Kordsmeier speaks with great excitement of original material in the works, which he plans to begin recording this summer. Stay tuned for future developments.
Chris is most often accompanied by his brother, Jacob Kordsmeier, who now tends to the group's percussive needs. This young nomad, having showcased his skills throughout Jamaica, Spain, and England, supplies the perfect accompaniment to the eclectic mix of songs performed by the Kordsmeiers. They are, without a doubt, a "MUST SEE"!
