Steve Katz, founding member of Blood, Sweat & Tears, will perform in his one-man show on Saturday, September 21, 2013, 8:00pm, in Pequot Library’s Auditorium/Concert Hall.
In 1969, a Blood, Sweat & Tears album sold six million copies worldwide, a major feat for that time, and fostered three number one singles. The group won three Grammies, was voted best band by the Playboy Jazz and Pop Poll two years in a row, and won three major Downbeat awards. Katz wrote many songs during his tenure with Blood, Sweat &Tears, including his well-loved “Sometimes in Winter.”
In his one-man show Katz performs songs from his career with Blood, Sweat & Tears, The Blues Project and beyond. He includes an exploration of his folk roots through acoustic renditions of his classic songs. Moreover, Katz will include first hand narratives from his storied career in the music industry as a founding member of an iconic rock group. The evening performance will be a living memoir of one of the most fascinating periods in the history of American music. Tickets/reservations are $30.00. Available online at www.pequotlibrary.org
