EBE Spotlight: Pop Philly Bandleader Corey Bonser

By | Blog, About EBE, Spotlights

Corey Bonser is the Band Leader for EBE’s Pop Philly and has been part of the EBE Events & Entertainment family for almost 10 years.

Corey is an electric bassist, saxophonist, and vocalist residing in Philadelphia, PA. Originals or covers, Corey flawlessly moves from genre to genre, continuing to play tastefully with style and groove.

Over the course of his 19 years in the music industry, he has worked with a variety of original artists and specializes in the genres of Funk, Soul, and Groove.

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Corey and interview him for this piece in an effort to get to know him better and find out what it is that makes him tick.


A Little Q&A with Corey Bonser – EBE Pop Philly

Here are just a few of the details he shared with us.


Q: Who is your hero?

Batman, obviously!


Q: What motivates you to work hard?

I love staying busy! I find it extremely satisfying to “make things perfect.”


Q: What’s your favorite movie?

The Blues Brothers


Q: What is your zodiac sign?



Q: What is your go-to for karaoke?

“Kiss” by Prince


Q: If you could join any past or present music group, which would you want to join?



Q: If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why?

For me, I think the late 1960’s would have been pretty exciting!


Q: What was the best event you ever worked?

I can’t pick one! I love working at the Cescaphe venues but, as a band, we also really enjoy performing at the ACI holiday Party every year at the Hotel Monaco!  It’s always a great time to see everyone and ACI always takes everyone out for a cheesesteak after-party!


Q: What is your favorite thing about your career?

I love having the opportunity to continue making music with great musicians every week! It never gets stale, plus I LOVE seeing the band surpass my couples expectations! Nothing quite feels like knowing everything we could do for an event was perfect.


Attend an EBE Band or DJ Showcase

Now that you’ve gotten to know more about him, come out and meet Corey and several of the other EBE Events & Entertainment band members, DJs, and MCs at an upcoming FREE showcase!  You’ll be able to experience everything that EBE Events & Entertainment has to offer and enjoy a few hours of food, dancing, and fun!

To help get your musical creative juices flowing, here is our guide for selecting music for your wedding.  Use it to prepare for your meeting with your EBE Events & Entertainment band leader or DJ.  Sharing your likes and dislikes, we’ll be able to put together the perfect musical accompaniment for your special day.
