Cory Luetjen, or "Looch" as he's better known by friends & fans, is a well versed singer-songwriter and guitarist. Picking up the guitar when he was 15 years old, he got a late start at it. However, by cutting his teeth at local Piedmont North Carolina area blues jams, he quickly gained a vast knowledge of the blues. While in his early & mid 20's, he toured nationally with some country acts, gaining valuable experience in that genre as well. Rounding out his talents on guitar are his ripping slide guitar licks. His exposure to beach music was something that happened while he was a radio DJ at a local station. He is the singer, front man, & songwriter of the Traveling Blues Band.
