Steve Katz: An Evening of Story and Song

May 30, 2015 - 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm at

Gateway City Arts is proud to present Steve Katz, a consummate performer and producer who helped define the fast changing soundscapes of the 60’s and early 70’s.  After appearances as a teenager at New York City’s Carnegie Hall with the Even Dozen Jug Band Steve and the legendary Al Kooper started The Blues Project.  The Blues Project broke new ground in music and wowed crowds everywhere they went, sharing the stage with mega groups such as The Who, Cream, and Smokey Robinson & The Miracles.  Steve went on to even greater heights winning a Grammy Award as a founding member of mega-group Blood, Sweat and Tears and as producer of Lou Reed’s most successful album.

Steve will offer us an unforgettable memoir in music, both new and old, sprinkled throughout with inside stories of the 60’s and 70’s that only he can tell.  In fact, Steve will be signing copies of his new book “Blood, Sweat, and My Rock and Roll Years” in which he recounts lots of  fascinating stories in an insightful, sometimes wistful and funny style.

Join us for this exciting event!

Eugene Uman’s Convergence Project

June 6, 2015 - 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm at

The Convergence Project’s music, composed by leader Eugene Uman, is innovative and exploratory on one side and accessible, and fun to listen to on the other.

It is unified by the integrity of the compositions, the shared vision of the group and a balance of jazz harmony, rock, and funk with Colombian rhythms such as pasillo, cumbia, curulao, puya and porro.

Having released their second CD, “Six Elements,” the band is gearing up for the next phase of development.

Michael Zsoldos (sax), Jeff Galindo (trombone), Sebastian Cruz (guitar), Uman (piano), Stomu Takeishi (bass) and Satoshi Takeishi (drums). Eugene Friesen appears when possible as guest artist.
