River Jam Artist Preview: Coby Wier

Being the son of a legend is never easy, but Coby Wier has managed to carve out his own niche by using lessons learned from his father while also happening to be one of the best guitar players in the state. A six-string whiz, Wier has only recently stepped up to the mic to lead a band…and the results are fantastic. Last year, Coby’s set at Floathouse was his first acoustic show ever and it was special This year, he’s back with his band to play at Cheatham Street with Kevin Galloway and it is sure to be something to not be missed. On the same stage his father once played, as did legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Wier will be sure to lay it all on the line for those in attendance.
