ROCKABILLY EARLY ROCK&ROLL R&B EARLY NASHVILLE FOLK ROCK DOO WOP
I had been doing classic rock as a kid, then in 1987 I hit on the idea of doing an old school rock and roll Act, something low-tech and real that would grab people's attention.
Listen to Baby Let's Play House or Mystery Train.
Between 1988 and 2001 we did hundreds of gigs around Ontario as Steve Lee and the Ride. I was driving the project, hiring, repertoire, arranging , Road management, bookings, schmooze.
Arenas and dives and nice people along the way. There is an old glossy below of the original band. I surely made my share of mistakes. joined Roly and the Rockers, with Roly Greenway from Crowbar. The music tracks below are from that group.
I've been doing musicals and choirs for about the last 10 years, so have a pretty good understanding of Harmony, discipline, stagecraft, and I am learning to read vocals.
Had a wild ride back then, so now that the world is different, music is a commodity rather than something precious, and the best players are in tribute Acts, or accompanists for church choirs, or in a piano bar , and the rest are barely working, how do you get noticed?
In my dream world I would like to meet people with a similar mindset, passion and drive, a person with a visual mind, a person with video production and editing skills, a person with advanced social media skills. And really good players and people of good character .
Am I asking too much here ?
All the best, Steve
