10pm Kevin McWha Steele & The Nightly Howl!
“Kevin Steele is a brilliantly versatile modern singer/songwriter who can rock furiously as well as deliver languid french chansons in a smooth as silk crooner’s voice. There is always something arresting going on in his extremely well-crafted and catchy songs. He deserves to be alot better known.” – Gary Lucas (Jeff Buckley, Gods and Monsters, Captain Beefheart, etc.) May 2012
Acuvi says, “It’s utterly brilliant, diverse and highly innovative.”
Veglam Magazine compared Kevin’s songwriting to that of Ziggy Stardust and Serge Gainsbourg.
Taxi Music labeled his performance “Eclectic and unique. This songwriter is loaded with artistic creativity and experienced musicianship. The vocals are executed with a fierce commitment to character and tonality.”
Steele brings his own unique blend of French-Anglo pop, folk, rock and jazz to the stage. “Squealing, eye-rolling and/or profanities welcome!”– PR Newswire, January 2012
