Real rock ‘n roll is alive and well. The Steepwater Band
from Chicago are about to unleash their rockin’ sounds with an album release party at The Hook. Upcoming St. Paul band Joe And The Mechanics
kick the night off.
Re-Turn Of The Wheel is a companion piece to the band’s previous record Turn Of The Wheel which came out at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, they were never able to properly support it with live shows. The new release features eight newly recorded tracks plus an acoustic version of the title track.
If the old saying about talent equaling success were true, then The Steepwater Band would already be a household name, rubbing shoulders with other like-minded travelers in our collective Rock ‘n Roll Fantasy.
This band leans into it, smiling, with everything in them, not for brass rings and marquees, but because they must! For them, the music lifestyle is a calling and not some stupid costume one puts on to shake loose gold, fame, and groupies. In a land of caricatures, it’s striking to come face-to-face with the real thing. And, The Steepwater Band is the real thing!
