“A few summers back, Spencertown Academy hosted Steve Katz to talk about his memoir, Blood, Sweat, and My Rock ‘n’ Roll Years: Is Steve Katz a Rock Star?,” says Gerald Seligman, Music Committee Chair. “I had the pleasure of interviewing him during our annual Festival of Books. Both the audience and I were riveted by his stories and often in hysterics about how Steve seemed to be everywhere in the 60s and 70s—and survived to tell the tale. This one-man show is the perfect vehicle for his dual talents of music and storytelling.”

Guitarist and singer Katz was a founding member of the Blues Project, the Even Dozen Jug Band, and Blood Sweat & Tears. In A Night of Story and Song, he tells poignant and often hilarious stories of his life in music and plays many of the songs he made famous. Along with the groups he created, he dined with Brian Epstein, partied with Groucho Marx, jammed with Mose Allison, worked with the Beatles’ George Martin, shared a bag of potato chips with Jimi Hendrix, and was told to get a haircut by Mickey Spillane. He was a producer of hit albums (for Lou Reed), a record company executive (Mercury, Green Linnet), and songwriter (Sometime in Winter, Steve’s Song). He will have copies of his memoir and CDs to sign and sell.

Covid Policy: Masks recommended but not required. The Spencertown Academy will follow NYS guidelines as they appear at the time of the concert.

This event is sold out.
