This was a nice ending to a very busy day. I follow both these bands, I support both these bands, I like photographing both of these bands, and hope to continue to photograph them on their journey. Tonight, Nomad Planets put together a great opening set for the evening. It was the strongest I have been too. It was great to personally experience it.
The Steepwater Band is smooth. Bluesy smooth. They go well with anything, and you want to take them along for anything. Each member is superb. Each have their personality that shines. They have roots, soul, are instrumental in their art, and you walk away exhausted because their groove pulls you in.
What a night. Sorry a lot of you missed it. I will say, you have a GREAT opportunity to see The Steepwater Band at the Chicago House of Blues on June 7th. Get your tickets!! Lets show Chicago this band can get down. Lets show support, and be there for The Steepwater Band!!!
Oh, and while you still can, (I will have to remove the link end of this week) you can check out The Steepwater Band as the "Featured Artist Of The Week" at the WJOB Flying Around the Sun's web page . . . click here.
