Obviously, Steve Katz is an expressive and lovely singer and an agile and exciting guitar player. He was, after all, a founding member of the seminal band The Blues Project and the famous band Blood, Sweat & Tears. 

So no, he didn’t need to establish his credentials as a rock star and talented musician during his sold-out talk and performance on Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Fife ‘n Drum Restaurant in Kent.

He was a founding member of two of the great early blues-inspired rock bands, Blood Sweat and Tears and The Blues Project. And in a career that’s spanned five decades, he’s worked with some of the all-time greats in the business, either as a musician or a producer.
