Korie has always supported her husband in the background with his numerous business endeavors and even with the shop Count’s Kustoms. Danny had always been interested in creating his own venue which could play rock music but since he was always busy with work, he hesitated to continue the project. She eventually convinced him to create a bar and grill venue called Count’s Vamp’d, which features a professional stage where bands can play, as well as two separate dining areas, one for those who want a live music experience, and the second for those who just want to hang out while having a meal.
The two co-own the establishment, and Korie serves as an entertainment director, handling the bands playing at the venue as well as the overall scheduling. The first big band that appeared in the venue was the rock band Slaughter, and soon more notable names started showing up. The popularity of the bar and grill has skyrocketed with reports of over 300 concerts happening every year. Korie mentioned in an interview that she enjoys the work very much and doesn’t plan on stopping work on attracting talent.
