Warrior Soul is an American heavy hard rock band formed by lead singer and producer, Kory Clarke. Clarke started the band on a bet from a promoter at New York City's 'Pyramid" club on Ave A after a solo spoken/performance art show called "Kory Clarke/Warrior Soul". Clarke boasted He would have the best Rock Band in the city in 6 months, 9 months later he signed to Geffen Records for a million dollars. Geffen insisted he shed his hired band and get new players. Clarke insisted on keeping Pete McClanahan as his bass player and the head hunt was on. Searching both coasts for 18 months and several mass tryouts still no one understood his vision. After a long and painful battle with Geffen execs which forced the removal of legendary Detroit guitarist Gerald Collins, Clarke had to either find someone else or lose his new managers (Q-Prime Management) and be hung up in legal battles with Geffen for several more years destroying a very promising career because Gerlald Collins was a "Black" guitarist and didn't have the image that Geffen and MTV wanted at the time. Former musicians in Warrior Soul include: Bass Pete McClanahan, Guitar John Ricco, drummer Mark Evans. Earlier players on drums and bass include Robert Pauls, Sam Manelli, Mark Archebald (ex Overkill and Warlock), Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke), Scott Duboys (ex Nuclear Assault, Cycle Sluts from Hell) Christopher Moffett (ex Mighty Joe Young, Cycle Sluts From Hell).
Pub and Music Bar
With a good sized stage area housing a drum riser and projection screen, the walls and ceiling are adorned with music memoribillia (and we are adding to it all the time) which makes it a perfect setting for our live band shows.
With a capacity of approximately 300 we tend to remain intimate, but always create a real buzz! There is a certain charm and character about the room and the venue as a whole, which will never be lost. But there are future plans to develop the Music Bar further, adding even more to the experience of a great small live venue, for both bands and music fans. Here is where bands can really enjoy playing live at The Waterloo and clientele can get up close & personal, with a first class sound provided by our highly skilled in-house engineer.
With good and easy access to the bar area, which provides very affordable bar prices, the word about our live nights is already beginning to spread far and wide, which makes The Waterloo a very pleasurable & memorable venue to perform, as well as watch great live bands. Our feedback is always first class! There is no other venue in the area quite like it and we are continuously working hard all the time to make the experience of your visit even better.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
