Fresh off their highly successful European tour The Steepwater Band made a rare appearance in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Event organizers for The Cedar Basin Jazz Festival stated they were thrilled to land the band.
I have covered the band in various cities, most notable Chicago. My last gig was their Record Release show @ The Ward for “Shake You Faith.”
Each time I hear the band they seem to push it up a notch. Joe and Tod have been together since high school which in today’s touring world is remarkable. Eric and Jeff are two of the best slide players working in tandem.
As a friend in the audience told me, “The boys are on “FIRE!” Thank God there were no fire extinguishers near the stage.
