Cedar Falls, Iowa ( June 25, 2016)

Fresh off their highly successful European tour  The Steepwater Band  made a rare appearance in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Event organizers for The Cedar Basin Jazz Festival stated they were thrilled to land the band.

I have covered the band in various cities, most notable Chicago.  My last gig was their Record Release show @ The Ward for “Shake You Faith.”

Each time I hear the band they seem to push it  up a notch.   Joe and Tod have been together since high school which in today’s touring world is remarkable.  Eric and Jeff are two of the best slide players working in tandem.

As a friend in the audience told me, “The boys are on “FIRE!” Thank God there were no fire extinguishers near the stage.

He saw Cream on October 14, 1968, at Vets Auditorium in Des Moines, One year later Burrows attended The Denver Pop Festival in Mile High Stadium. He witnessed The Jimi Hendrix Experience's final gig on June 29, 1969. His list of artists included many who have shaped music for decades. Around 1993 Burrows become friends/colleagues with people in the music industry. He had developed an impressive networking resume which he used it to his advantage and began a concert photography website. He worked for free through multiple live music websites designed to promote live music and the often struggling artists and venues. His shoot for no pay was an obstacle with other photographers. Burrows’ sole purpose for LGS was for the art, not monetary means. He lived in the music environment and soon developed name recognition. After the loss of his brother, a professional drummer, in 2014, he became serious about becoming a drummer. Burrows began drum lessons. The LGS website, contributors and his studies did not match. In 2016 he was about to pull the plug on LGS and embrace drumming. After a chance consultation with one of the most highly regarded session drummers and programmers today he got his answer. Start a website featuring only drummers. With help, he launched https://www.drummersphotgrapher.com. Burrows added his passion for drumming with his expertise of live music photography by launching Drummer Photographer LGS.
