Returning to our stage will be Steve Smith! Steve Smith ... a man with a dark and mysterious past. A blues-y mystery upon which all who hear him will eternally contemplate. Behold his supernal skills and tremble as his mighty chords shake your very soul! plays old school blues; rooted in the Chicago tradition, Steve stays true to the Delta heritage, swinging jump blues, a dose of funk, and a little 50?s rock n? roll/rockabilly. Unlike almost every other blues performer, Steve writes his own material; a refreshing break from the ?same old-same old?. Staying true to the genre, Steve?s music is original, yet traditional. Check him out at http://stevesmithandthemeteors.com/index.htm.
