Anyone who has heard the Dave Steffen Band play live understands that their music is more than just notes. With ten albums and literally thousands of live appearances under his belt, Dave Steffen has made his music a way of life. Since Dave received his first recording contract at the tender age of fifteen, he has devoted his life to playing, recording and living his music.
A Wisconsin native, Dave moved to San Francisco in 1986 and was fully involved with the incredible sounds of the music scene there. It was in SF that Dave opened for top-caliber acts like Santana, Huey Lewis and the News, Ronnie Montrose, and Journey, just to name a few. Through hosting his weekly blues jam at a Bay Area club, Dave regularly jammed with members of Santana, Huey Lewis, as well as members of other prominent bands. It was during his stay in San Francisco in spring 1993, when he was tapped for an opening slot for a tour with Robin Trower.
In 1995, Dave returned to his native Wisconsin, where he first earned his reputation as a top-flight axeman. The trio, simply called the Dave Steffen Band, packs a live punch which gets the crowd on its feet every time.
In recent years the Dave Steffen Bands'' recordings have been played on an HBO movie and over 30 times on "The Young and Restless" soap opera. This also included two guest appearances on "The Young and Restless" show. And is now being aired in Norway, Canada, France and Germany.
The Half A Million Miles CD is an excellent combination of blues and rock in some well written tunes. Hear a few local frogs and a famous toad on one song called "Walking In The Rain". It''s an awesome blend of bluesy guitar and nature. (No animals were harmed during the making of this CD!)
