    Steve Pryor

    8:30 p.m. - $10.00 In 1978 Muddy Waters told Steve, "Don't ever put that guitar down!" Since that time he has shared the stage with John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Greg Allman, Dr. John, and Johnny Winter, to name a few. His tours with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and countless performances in concerts, night clubs, and blues festivals have left enduring impressions on all who attended. Steve's guitar style and singing encompass a history of Blues Americana without compromising his love for extreme, rocking Stratocaster guitar tones. The Steve Pryor band provides plenty of material for the blues purist, however, unlike many strict bluesmen, they see nothing wrong with tapping the roots of rock 'n 'roll to get their message across. Songs like John Hiatt's "Paper Thin," and Keith Richard's "Before They Make Me Run," seem to draw a very fine line between blues and rock (and even country) thereby demonstrating the similarity between the styles while reaffirming Pryor's own versatility.
