Children of the KoRn ROCK Vamp’d!

Children of the Korn

Children of the KoRn are a Las Vegas based KoRn tribute band. And hot damn, they’re a good one. Made up of Vocalist Joel Floyd West (previously of DriVen), Craig Nielsen (Smashing Alice/Former Flotsam & Jetsam) on drums,  Dustin Turner (Smashing Alice) on guitar, Chuck Dunnum (Systemec) on bass, and Kevin Johnson, also on guitars. It’s like a mini super group of some of the fine local musicians we have here in Vegas.

These guys play very well in their other projects, respectively. But THIS show. This was one hell of a performance. It was their second performance ever, and it was in front of a mostly packed crowd at Count’s Vamp’d. It was their second performance as a solidified band, and during this set, I found myself remembering the popular KoRn songs that I have heard through the years. Joel Floyd West has perfected his Johnathan Davis impersonation, and the all around high energy on stage made for a killer performance.

If you’re a KoRn fan, these guys should definitely be on your watchlist… and that’s coming from someone who isn’t huge on KoRn. (Totally nothing against them, by the way. I respect them as musicians, I just never got into them too heavily.)

Keep a look out on their page for future performances!

Lead photographer, art director, sometimes editor, and writer for ZrockR Magazine- I am a mother, wife, photographer and a metalhead. Las Vegas Native. I first picked up a camera at 12 years old and I have been carrying one around ever since. I have an incredibly deep connection and love for my Las Vegas local music scene, this is where I first fell in love with music photography and knew that this is what I wanted to be doing with my time here on this planet. I say I'm a metalhead but I really love all kinds of music, I just connect the most with metal. Concerts are my happy place, and the happiest you'll ever see me is at a show with my camera in hand!
