Jerry Corrado was born and raised in West Philadelphia, PA. He has performed as a guitarist and vocalist since the age of 7 years old. As the bandleader of Yesterday’s News, he is very proud to be joined by some of the areas most talented musicians.
Jerry picked up his first guitar at the age of 7. He took lessons for a short while, but it became evident by his family that Jerry only needed to hear a song once on the radio and he could figure out how to play it by ear. His first band was “Cold Heart” and he believes he was thirteen or so when he put this together. They played locally around West Philadelphia and once competed in a large New York band competition happy to place 2nd against bands much older than all the members of the band. In the mid-1970s Jerry formed “Surrender”. This band became a big hit at the Jersey Shore and for several summers from the mid-1970s to mid-1980s, they played seven nights a week down the shore. Jerry says “We played opposite stage and actually opened for big names such as The Tramps, The Drifters, The Shirelles and Beatle Mania. From 1981 to late-1990 formed a band called “Magic” and played clubs, weddings and parties.” Then in 1990 Jerry joined Midnight Hour as lead guitarist and vocalist. After 20 years with Midnight Hour, in 2011 Jerry decided to leave Midnight Hour and put together a smaller band that could perform the greatest hits of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and some current tunes.
Jerry’s favorite band would be the Beatles. His favorite guitarists are Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimmy Hendrix.
