STEEL CITY ROVERS
August 27, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
The Steel City Rovers have carved out a healthy place within a genre that is both strict and forgiving.

Musical forgiveness was easy to grant when they played an extremely funky version of a tune. The freedom of being able to blend styles, musical idioms, and beats with alternate instrumentation is remarkable. No need to try to be “pure” when the world’s smorgasbord of music is enticing and tempting you in so many ways.
The test of authenticity came near the end of the set. The Steel City Rovers performed an a capella song with multiple verses and vocal harmonies that reminded me of an Irish pub song.
