Steve Katz: An Evening of Story and Song

May 30, 2015 - 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm at

Gateway City Arts is proud to present Steve Katz, a consummate performer and producer who helped define the fast changing soundscapes of the 60’s and early 70’s. After appearances as a teenager at New York City’s Carnegie Hall with the Even Dozen Jug Band Steve and the legendary Al Kooper started The Blues Project. The Blues Project broke new ground in music and wowed crowds everywhere they went, sharing the stage with mega groups such as The Who, Cream, and Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. Steve went on to even greater heights winning a Grammy Award as a founding member of mega-group Blood, Sweat and Tears and as producer of Lou Reed’s most successful album.Steve will offer us an unforgettable memoir in music, both new and old, sprinkled throughout with inside stories of the 60’s and 70’s that only he can tell. In fact, Steve will be signing copies of his new book “Blood, Sweat, and My Rock and Roll Years” in which he recounts lots of fascinating stories in an insightful, sometimes wistful and funny style.

Join us for this exciting event!

Having released their second CD, “Six Elements,” the band is gearing up for the next phase of development.
