Chuck Steed / Press

“Chuck Steed , River Rock Zydeco-flavored rock must be enjoying some kind of renaissance in the East Bay, because this is the third such album that's come over the transom this week, not counting Jimbo Trout's vaguely zydeco-flavored collection of kids' songs. Steed's album is also one of the stronger offerings, not only because he leads a capable group of musicians (his quartet includes bass, drum, and Hammond B3), but also because he's a persuasive singer, if not an extraordinary one.
