The Steve Summers Band
Vintage RocknRoll – Blues
The Blues has been Steve’s inspiration throughout his career. He toured the world as a musician and shared the stage with many household names…
Where does a band’s story start?
Maybe the real start is from when the music impacted and inspired them. In Steve’s case, that was in his early teens, with the blues inspired pop/rock groups of the sixties, but most potently with the arrival of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Peter Green and a host of others including from the US, the brilliant Mike Bloomfield. These great musicians and others showed the way back to the early 20th Century, into the melting pot of the Mississippi Delta, New Orleans and later Chicago to the roots of the blues and eventually what became Blues-Rock music.
Steve has played in a number of bands, but the Blues has been Steve’s inspiration throughout his career. Steve has toured the world as a musician, and shared the stage with many household names. He has been a band leader a session musician, a music producer and song writer of note.
His fretwork these days is a testimony to a lifetime’s love of the Blues-Rock genre, as exemplified on the band’s debut album Lookin’ Back, Movin’ On, and now on RAINMAKIN’ the bands second studio album which has won the award for Blues Studio album of the year 2016 on Radio Severn FM’s Blues Hour. The lion’s share of tracks on both albums are written by Steve.
The drum stool is impressively filled by Bob Pearce, veteran of numerous well known blues, rock and country bands, most notably stints with Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople and Bad Company; plus Hogans Heroes, featuring Albert Lee and Jerry Hogan. His experiences include playing festivals in Wembley, Nashville, St Louis and across Europe including the Albert Hall and Abbey Road.
On bass is long term collaborator and founder member Trevor Brooks, whose rock credentials give the band the solid back-bone needed, particularly for some of the more muscular material.
