Last week I received an invite from Steve Katz on Facebook to join The Blues Project Facebook Page. This piqued my interest as I have a gap in my knowledge to be filled when it comes to their musical legacy. I am enjoying getting back in step with this seminal band from the late 60s. It’s cool to have a founding member create a Facebook Page and share out their personal scrapbook with us.
The last time I saw Steve Katz was several years ago at Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford, Ct. Sikorsky held a concert on the company front lawn and Blood, Sweat and Tears/The Young Rascals (Gene Cornish, Dino Danelli) performed for us. Steve Katz drove down in his van to play and sing, “Sometime in Winter” with BS & T and then drove right home. It turns out that Steve Katz and his wife, Alison Palmer have a ceramics shop, Alison Palmer Studio in South Kent, Connecticut.
Steve is now working on his memoirs and performing solo concerts. Here is the announcement of an upcoming concert Steve Katz will be doing with Blues Project co-founding member, Danny Kalb. The event is scheduled for Friday, December 14, in Framingham, Massachusetts. Thinking strongly about attending 🙂
I plan to make it a point for my wife and I to visit, Steve Katz, the Alison Palmer Studio and the Kent arts/music scene soon. I love discovering new avenues of art and music in my Connecticut backyard 😉
