If you like real rock 'n' roll, you're in for a heck of a night. From Chicago, The Steepwater Band excels at Chicago-style rock-blues, originals and classics by blues icons like Muddy Water and Howlin' Wolf, all performed with the conviction of true believers in the blues and rock 'n' roll. Folks enamored of Mick Taylor-era Stones, early Hendrix, and The Black Keys will certainly understand. Formed in Chicago in 1998, the band's signature sound is at once a nod to earlier rock n' blues combined with raw and gusty musical approach you can hear in their live show. Check them out with special guest, The Glue Factory, at the Mauch Chunk Opera House.
