How exciting to welcome back Steve Oliver!  The timing for this visit is everything - Steve is coming to the region that we now call home: on the Space Coast of Florida.  He's starring - along with good friend and fellow musician, Marion Meadows - at the King Center in Melbourne on September 9th.  

Anyone who has seen Steve in concert knows what a treat he is!  Staggering appeal.  Splendid artistry.  One-to-one communication with the audience unmatched by almost anyone I know.  That he plays with skill and ferocity is one thing.  That guitar and he are bonded for LIFE.  But when he sings, it's the proverbial icing on the cake.  He means every word.  Can anyone be more sincere than Steve Oliver?  SHOW me!

Multiple albums, a 25 year musical journey of showmanship and instrumental Jazz hits, Steve embarked on a new road trip in 2016.  With the direction of "Pictures and Frames."  And all VOCAL album that was not necessarily geared for Jazz outlets. You would have had to see him in person to realize that this is an extension of who he really IS.  He has always been both Pop and Soulfully inclined.  As it turns out, he's a true Hybrid of many genres.  This particular project was strongly influenced by those that he especially respects: John Mayer, Sting, and Steely Dan.  Some of us hear echoes of what was on the Radio in the 70's.  Paul Davis and England Dan/John Ford Coley.  Ladies and gentlemen, that is HIGH praise!

On the new set of songs, friends and first tier musicians - including Leland Sklar and Vinnie Colaiuta.  Their resumes are ridiculous with legends.  And they felt right at home with Steve.  Then, there are the SONGS!  Well, it's why you must tune into Friday's show on 9/1.  Yes, a special day.  Because STEVE is.  He joins us at 2 p.m. Eastern.
