Guitar Legend Erik Steckel

Guitar Legend Erik Steckel
American blues/rock powerhouse and guitar sensation is heading to The Imperial Hotel Eumundi for what is sure to be a helluva gig on Saturday 14 October.

In an era where pedalboards, laptops and samples have become commonplace, Eric Steckel goes against the grain and takes us back to the days when great guitars were played loudly through great amps.

Hailed by many as the top rising star of Blues/Rock, Eric delivers a powerhouse performance that has left audiences in 22 countries (and counting) mesmerized. He brings an energy and passion to the stage that never disappoints and is a must-see for fans of vintage guitar rock.

Eric's latest studio album "Black Gold" takes listeners on a musical roller-coaster that embodies the human spirit and captures the emotions of daily life. It's his most diverse album to date with soft, dynamic blues ballads to heavy, low-tuned rock anthems featuring Eric's signature guitar style front and center. No pedals, samples or drum machines and no apologies for turning it up to 11. This is rock the way they used to make it.

Few young guitarists can improve on Eric Steckel's impressive resume. Eric's debut CD"A Few Degrees Warmer" was recorded live in 2002 when he was just 11 years old. It wasn't long until Eric appeared at the 2003 Sarasota Blues Festival where his powerful set became the talk of the day. Before the night was over Eric, was introduced by British Blues/Rock legend John Mayall as the youngest guitarist ever on stage with the Bluesbreakers, with whom he later toured and recorded with.

Eric spent the following years filled with marquee festival dates and sold out concert tours in Holland, Germany, Belgium and Italy. Throughout his teens and young adulthood, Eric released several critically acclaimed live and studio albums. 2006's "Havana" was a hit among blues guitar lovers; 2008's "Feels Like Home" featured the talented Duane Trucks on drums and recalled the 70's southern rock era and 2012 saw the recording of powerful modern Blues record "Dismantle The Sun".

Last year, Eric embarked on a quest to record a fully transatlantic studio album with some of the finest producers, engineers and musicians he knew. This led to "Black Gold" being recorded in both Nashville and Amsterdam. It is Eric's most successful album to date and a fan favourite.

Road-tested and seasoned from 19 years on stage and in the studio, yet young enough to deliver the passion and feeling of the blues to a wider audience, Eric is a skilled player with a powerful voice and a winning personality.
