Steamer / Bio

CONTACT email: steamerblues@sky.com or through Steamer's Facebook page, or phone 07753 223466.
Steamer is an acoustic band based on the South Coast of England, playing mainly as a trio, but also as a duo, or four piece.
Steamer's comprises Guitar/Vocals, Bass, with Percussion (and sometimes Harmonica)
Steamer plays a lively mix of songs, some of which were first heard around 80 years ago when the blues was emerging from the Delta. Others will have been played a little more recently, but the common theme is uptempo and upbeat with little of the misery, doom and gloom so often mistakenly associated with the genre. Steamer brings those songs to life and shows that Blues has a twinkle in the eye........All played at a volume level that doesn't offend the ears.

With songs from Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Sonny Boy Williamson, Big Bill Broonzy, Howling Wolf, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Lazy Lester, Dr Feelgood, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Dylan, and many more.

Formed in January 2011 from the core of a bigger blues band, Steamer continues to explore new venues and is a popular choice for both pub gigs and festivals. offering quality live music with professionalism and reliability. Steamer has played at Swanage Blues Festival, and The Great Dorset Steam Fair in 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014.. Other Steamer venues include The Talking Heads, Southampton, The Forest Park Hotel, Brockenhurst, Mudeford Arts Festival, The Wise Man, Dorchester, The Royal Oak, Nr Dorchester, The Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne, Rock Restaurants in Westbourne & Wimborne (now The Minster Arms), Folk & Roots Night at The Starre, Christchurch.

With a compact PA giving a small stage footprint and easily controllable volume levels, Steamer is an ideal choice for the smaller venues. Steamer publicises events through Facebook, online gig guides, emailing list, blues magazine listings, and of course, posters at the venues
