Presented by Sweetwater Music Hall at Sweetwater Music Hall

Cordovas are an Americana/Rock band from Nashville, TN.

A band with one foot in the present and another in the past, the Cordovas embrace the sound of classic Americana and country-rock, with the Band, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band as key influences and plenty of close harmonies and dueling guitar work.

The group are led by bassist, vocalist, and songwriter Joe Firstman, who had recorded as a solo artist and led the house band on Last Call with Carson Daly before forming the Cordovas in 2011.

In 2011, Firstman relocated to Nashville and reconnected with Jaron Lowenstein, a friend who was a member of the country duo Evan & Jaron. Eager to play music that reflected their tastes in vintage Americana and country-rock in the tradition of the Band, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band, Firstman and Lowenstein formed the first edition of the Cordovas, with Lowenstein on vocals, Firstman on bass and vocals, Toby Weaver and Johnny Gray on guitars, Jon Loyd on keyboards, and Caleb Gilbreath on drums. The Cordovas soon hit the road and, before 2011 was out, they recorded their self-titled debut album.

Lowenstein soon dropped out of the band, but the Cordovas continued on, with Firstman and Weaver anchoring the lineup through a number of personnel changes.
