Chicago based The Steepwater Band is Jeff Massey (guitar and vocals), Tod Bowers (bass guitar), Joe Winters (drums) and newest member Eric Saylors (2nd guitar and vocals).  The band played the Gas Lamp in Des Moines on Grand Ave. The venue had an old blues room feel and the sound was incredible for a bar atmosphere. The band played 2 sets of original music spanning their 13 year career with many from their 2011 release Clava. Their 18  minute cover of Boom Boom was a personal favorite.




If you have never seen The Steepwater Band check out their website for a venue near by or better yet bring them to a venue near you.

Thank you for checking out Gig Archives. I hope you found the content to your liking. Gig Archives is the final band orientated website I will operate. It is no longer the labor of love  it once was in 2009- 2015.  Within the site years of special moments are documented in  photos and interviews. Gig Archives will continue have new posts as I am the House Photographer: U.S. Cellular Center, The Paramount Theater, McGrath Amphitheater, and the Ice Arena in Cedar Rapids through Venue Works. When approved I will post photos from my house gigs. I also shoot gigs for Riverside Casino in Riverside, Iowa. I am a drummer and have devoted all my free time to lessons and operating Drummer Photographer. Drummer Photographer is a site dedicated to drummers. Peace
