Steve Katz: Story and Song


Gateway City Arts presents Steve Katz, a consummate performer and producer who helped define the fast changing soundscapes of the 60’s and early 70’s, on Saturday, May 30, at 92 Race Street, Holyoke, MA.

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 offers 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.

Doors open at 7:00pm. Show starts at 8:00pm. Tickets are $10 in advance and can be purchased at www.gatewaycityarts.com or $13 at the door. Beer, wine and cocktails are available from the bar. Food is available throughout the evening from the grill. For more information please contact Gateway City Arts at hello@gatewaycityarts.com or 413-650-2670.
