Art Steele Blues Band
Guitarist and vocalist Art Steele brings excitement and lots of skill with his stellar ensemble, Mike Bliss (bassist) and Bill Arnold(drums). Over the years, Art has worked with many of jazz and gospel artists and has written for numerous magazines. Equally adept as a sound engineer, during the early 1980s Art began working with acapella group Sweet Honey in the Rock as their touring sound engineer. In more than 25 years, he has missed only three shows - one airplane flight cancellation and two injuries requiring surgery. In his own words, he is “the Cal Ripken, Jr. of sound engineering!” Not surprisingly, his personal motto is “Who dares, wins.” Art has dedicated most of his life to mating the technology he loves with the music he loves in the hearts, minds, and ears of the people he loves.
