Bluff Park resident Corey Nolen harbors two passions in life: photography and songwriting. The self-described family man has spent years performing, writing and recording music, hoping to tell the stories that live inside of all of us.
Now, a year after the release of his first album “Drive Down South,” Nolen returns to Moonlight on the Mountain for a live show on Friday, April 10. Tickets are $12. He will play with a full band as well as an artist from Nashville named Austin Manuel. Nolen describes his latest album as “a pretty great mixture of classic country sounds with some modern spins.”
Located at 585 Shades Crest Road in Bluff Park, Moonlight on the Mountain was designed to be a comfortable listening venue, presenting a variety of original acoustic performers in an casual concert format. Neither a bar nor a restaurant, Moonlight invites music fans to come hear artists of folk, Americana, roots, country and bluegrass and more in a casual setting.
Inspired by the appeal of house concerts and “unplugged” shows favored by musicians and small audiences nationwide, the venue showcases singers, songwriters and instrumentalists in a mini-theater environment where guests can bring their own snacks and beverages.
When not presenting music, The Moonlight hosts private events, with room for 85 to 100 people to gather. In addition to the stage, there are spacious restrooms, a kitchenette, 2600 square feet of carpeted floor space, and a mountain crest view overlooking the Oxmoor Valley below.
