About The Corey Hotline:
The award-winning Hotline Hosts bring you celebratory and spirited dive bar bangers. These modern sock-hop bops are the result of being raised in the Golden Age Era of rock n’ roll. Every Colombia House collection of malt shop glory is buried deep inside each Corey. Just a bit hotter, heavier, the phone lines ever readier.
The Corey Hotline’s sophomore record Dream Phone was released in January 2022. Their latest record is formed around the songwriting core of Mason Jenkins (he/him), who calls himself the transman-frontman. Joining Mason is Cat Alcorn (she/her) on drums, an absolute heart throb and an incredibly talented percussionist. Recently completing the trio is Cat’s sister, Siân Alcorn, who provides a soft strength in contrast to the other rowdier Coreys.
Tomboys 4ever, The Corey Hotline is your queerest, dearest, pretend-tough guy trio. Let them into your heart, they’ll leave it better than they found it.
About Jam Club:
Jam Club has been an integral part of National Music Centre’s programming for over a decade. Born out of the earlier Guitar Club program that was aimed specifically towards “at risk” youth, today Jam Club emphasizes creating space and opportunity for any and all teens in the community. This weekly free after-school drop-in program brings teens and volunteers together in support of music learning and the acquisition of important life skills such as teamwork, collaboration, intuition, and timing.

NMC Jam Club is presented by CJAY-92’s Jesse & JD with support from the Richardson Foundation and Sticks & Strings.
