Tickets are limited, so get yours quickly before you miss this amazing opportunity to mingle with music history!
Among the music cognoscenti, Steve Poltz is regarded as one of the most talented and prolific songwriters of our time. His songs have ruled the charts, and regularly appear in movie soundtracks, television shows, and commercials. His touring schedule is ferocious, ping ponging between continents with enough frequency to earn him manic followings in scores of different accents and languages.
Steve Poltz's live shows have captivated audiences far and wide with a mix of singing, storytelling, and guitar shredding. He can take an audience from laughter to tears and back again in the space of the same song. Steve Poltz transcends the word talented. He is unforgettable in all the right ways.
Any musician who has traveled as extensively as Poltz will have their share of colorful road stories, but Poltz adventures read like a bucket list. Starting out auspiciously, Poltz recalls meeting Elvis Presley at a small airport and beaming proudly as The King hugged his sister for an inordinately long time. Growing up in Palm Springs, California, he trick-or-treated at Liberaces house and was Bob Hopes favorite altar boy.
His rich and colorful legacy is the stuff of legend, but it is his distinctive style of songwriting that has caused the world to offer up its stages, clubs, and alleys. Poltz sound is entirely unique- from his inhuman fingerstyle techniques to the inimitable melodies that roll from his guitar like cool waterfalls, you know a Poltz song as soon as you hear it.
To see Steve Poltz to perform live is one of the most entertaining shows a human could ever see. Frenzied, aggressive, hilarious, and heartbreakingly sincere, his live performances have become bona fide events, with sub-cultures popping up all over the globe to entice him to come and tour.
His body of work is an impressive collection of ballads, rockers and uniquely melodic acoustic numbers that reflect his incomparable style of alternate tunings and savage finger picking techniques. Guitar geeks fall prostrate at his feet trying vainly to learn how to play his stunningly gorgeous and deceptively complex songs. To see him play guitar is a visual feast so frenetic that close proximity to his playing may expose one to risk of seizure!
