“For those Steve Miller Band fans who don’t know Marty Stuart And His Fabulous Superlatives –‐–‐ Marty Stuart, Kenny Vaughan, Harry Stinson & Chris Scruggs –‐–‐ together they are one of the best singing and playing bands EVER and not to be missed.

Steve Miller has been an enlivening presence on the American music scene for more than half a century. To begin with, he was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ’60s. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music –‐ and, indeed, society –‐ could be in the years to come. Then, in the ’70s, Miller crafted a brand of pure pop that was smart, polished, exciting and irresistible –‐ and that dominated radio in a way that few artists have ever managed. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner” and “Jungle Love,” among them. To this day, those songs are instantly recognizable when they stream on the radio –‐ and impossible not to sing along with. Their hooks are the very definition of indelible.
