With two big shows, The Steepwater Band plans to celebrate Halloween this year by presenting their own version of The Rolling Stones classic live album “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!” The shows will take place on back to back evenings, October 30 at House of Blues in Chicago, IL & October 31 at The Castle Theater in Bloomington, IL. Both headlining appearances, the shows will feature TSB performing the Stones album in its entirety, followed by a short set of original fan favorites, in support of their latest release “Diamond Days ~ The Best of The Steepwater Band 2006 – 2014.”
The idea came about when the band was asked by their new manager Nick Leroy of NTL Productions to take part in his annual Halloween show in Bloomington, IL. When word of the gig spread amongst the scene of promoters, it became clear that demand would call for an additional performance the same weekend in Steepwater’s hometown of Chicago. TSB drummer Joe Winters explains, “It’s our way of putting a costume on without actually dressing up. Musically, we get to become one of our favorite bands for an hour that night!” Added bassist Tod Bowers, “This is a great record for us to take a stab at because it’s the kind of live recording that captures the energy and spirit of a typical TSB show - gutsy, raw, and imperfect. It’s gonna be really FUN!”
These special shows will come off the heels of another busy summer for the band which found them criss-crossing America again, as well as recently completing a brand new studio record, expected for release early next year. On all levels, The Steepwater Band continues to “Get Their Ya-Ya’s Out” through traveling and performing anywhere & everywhere they can…
