Merilyn Steele / Bio

Get your joint jumpin’ with the positive vibe of the Merilyn Steele Band!

Pumping out a live show of high energy classic rock and roll, country rock and blues consisting of hit covers and quirky uptempo originals this band will get you moving. Paying tribute to artists such as Creedence, Wilson & Pickett, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Lee Kernaghan, Alan Jackson, Eric Clapton, Bryan Ferry, The Mavericks etc you can be assured of a variety of great danceable tunes.

The bands beginning’s were auspicious with two local musicicans so impressed with Merilyn’s CD (Extraordinary Daze) at her launch they approached her to form a band. Honoured by their offer she agreed and so the boys rang some mates to form the rest of the band which started in 2009 and has continued in various forms ever since.

Based in Sydney this 5 piece band already had folk round town talking after their very first gig and made a fun videoclip which received airplay on pay TV’s CMC channel. www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3-7QRryy8k
