You can now buy my music at http://homeboysteve.bandcamp.com/ Why wait in the long lines at Walmart when you can purchase directly from me !
..MurphGuide.com was nice enough to feature a profile of me recently:
Our next spotlight artist is guitarist Steve Antonakos, a.k.a. Homeboy Steve. Our description of Steve will be brief, just like his answers to our questions were brief:
Steve is a talented guitarist that plays in several bands, makes cool flyers for his gigs, reads MurphGuide.com on occasion and answered our questions below:
How long have you been performing? 35 years.
Past lives (i.e., previous bands, your early years, etc.): Blue Chieftans, NY Loose, 5 Chinese Brothers, Greg Garing
Favorite venues to play: Banjo Jim's, Hill Country, The Ear Inn
Musical influences: First Jimi Hendrix and Duane Allman, then a lot of other stuff . . .
Tell us a story or anecdote about performing live. The gig never ends, it's just that some breaks are longer than others.
Any advice to someone just starting out? Don't stop.
