Why settle for the same hum-drum party or bar experience when you can have Steve Ewing come over and kick it live! Yes, that’s right, Steve Ewing, the very same Steve Ewing who fronted St. Louis’ pride and joy, The Urge. Steve has spent the past 20 years rocking out on stages of all sizes, and places all over, with an eclectic blend of covers, Urge favorites, and a wealth of original material as well.
Whether you’re in need of a quiet acoustic affair, or a full on rock assault, we’ve got you covered. Steve Ewing shows come in one of two enticing flavors, whether it’s an acoustic outing with axe-man extraordinaire Adam Hansbrough or a full band assault. Either way you’re in for a stellar mix of classic covers, Urge favorites and outstanding selections from any one of the six independently releases, including the latest, Zodiac.
Dazed n Confused
Founded by Army Veterans Rusty Ezzell and Dustin Row. Dazed n Confused packs a heavy, high energy punch of rock n roll that you won’t soon forget. Guitarist Mike Mattingly and Matt Diekemper perfectly blend heavy 70’s crunch with bright melodic solos. Andy Goodwin on bass supplies the rhythmic low end to compliment the thundering drums from Dustin Row and the iconic rock voice of Rusty Ezzell.
Their loaded set list includes Molly Hatchet, Foghat, Allman Brothers, Rush, Robin Trower, 38 Special, Doobie Brothers, Sammy Hagar, April Wine, Van Halen, Thin Lizzy, Montrose, Heart, James Gang, ZZ Top, Golden Earring, Steve Miller Band, AC/DC, Queen, Alice Cooper and more.
That 80's Band
Rubik’s Cubes, Pac-Man, skinny ties and leg warmers—That 80s Band brings back the sound of the 80s Pop/Rock/New-Wave era. Comprised of Valerie Girl (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Mick Fly (Bass/Vocals), Jon Dohnson (Keyboards/Vocals), Izzy Furreel (Lead Guitar/Vocals), and Rod Springfield (Drums), That 80s Band is a fun, high-energy recreation of the 80s music scene.
This is not a modern version of everyone’s favorite 80s tunes. This is as close to going back in time as humanly possible without a Flux Capacitor and plutonium. The experienced line-up has the capabilities (and gnarly wardrobe) to cover the most popular (Madonna, Rick Springfield) to the nostalgic one-hit wonders (Aha, Tommy Tutone). So, dig out your parachute pants, fingerless gloves, jackets with lots of zippers, practice your moonwalk, and check out this band…They’re like, totally tubular!
Whiskey Morning is a five piece country band with some of the best musicians in the Midwest. Suzy Bacino (guitar, vocals, original songwriter), Bob Breidenbach on pedal steel/lap steel and vocals, Michael Eisenbeis (vocals and guitar), Kevin Gagnepain on bass, and Adam White on drums, take country to a whole new level.
The HOTTEST country band in the Midwest, Wildfire brings a non-stop party with fresh high-energy arrangements of your favorite country songs. Wildfire is a country crossover band, performing Pop Country hits, along with Classic Country, Southern Rock and Top 40 from Carrie Underwood to Dolly Parton and Luke Bryan to Johnny Cash. Offering both male & female lead singers, this band will be sure to have everyone singing along with all of the country hits. No other band compares to this group of talented musicians giving you the show of a lifetime.
