Note: We are NOT associated with several others from New York to Florida making or holding various claims to fame of once being from the original band Steam of nearly fifty years ago. See below for more information.
Also, anyone using our trademarked name of "Steam" is in violation of Federal Law.
To be sure, "Steam" was labeled as a so-called "One Hit Wonder" sometime after the release of the 1969 hit song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye," but originally "Steam" was not a real band: The record was actually recorded by eclectic studio musicians, and a "nom de plume" was made up for the record release. After the record became a surprise hit, a band of touring musicians was soon assembled to capitalize on the song by the legendary Paul Leka, one of the writers and a prominent industry record producer who also wrote hit songs for other bands and produced huge acts like REO Speedwagon.
Various versions of the touring band have come and gone over the long span of time, until it finally disappeared. Greg reformed the band with some of its former touring members in 1997, acquiring a federal trademark for the name. Although some of the musicians from the old days may again reassemble under our trademarked name (as we once did in 1997) to pay tribute to Paul, these days Greg mostly performs as a solo artist (with the band) and the band is once again a young band. You will find that most of the musicians in today's band were not even born when the original (actual) band was sent out nearly five decades ago, and the music we play may span from way back then up till today. We want to ensure that we are not pigeonholed to any one genre of music, and that our fans understand we are not associated with several others out there making or holding various claims to fame.
The music on here is of the older genre, but we are working on newer material and new originals. If anyone has a song they would like to submit to us for recording please feel free to do so.
