Steve, no stranger to live performance, has spent over twenty years wowing fans with his emotionally charged vocals, and an uncanny ability to read an audience and deliver exactly what brings them to their feet.

With every song, you’ll feel the pulsating energy that defined the heart and soul of CCR’s classic tunes. Get ready to dance, stomp, and sing along as you become one with the infectious rhythms that shaped rock history.
