Cory Graves-Montalbano

Assistant Department Manager & Undergraduate Programs Coordinator

Cory is a near-lifelong musician - he began drumming at age 8, and playing professionally a few years after. Cory attended UCSC from 2011-2015, where he added piano, guitar, and composition to his wheelhouse of musical interests, eventually graduating with highest honors and a Bachelor of Music in drum set performance.

These days, Cory mostly finds himself playing rootsy rock music with the Coffis Brothers and jump blues swing with the Alpha Rhythms Kings, but is adept in many styles and loves to experiment with different sounds and genres.

Find Cory on the road at a live show, at a baseball game, or at a wine bar, vehemently arguing his case that Deep Space 9 is the best Star Trek franchise.
