LaRhonda and the Steele Family Band
We are elated to celebrate Independence Day with the uber-talented vocalist/songwriter LaRhonda Steele and her Steele Family Band.
LaRhonda (Cascade Blues Association Muddy Award recipient for Best Female vocalist in 2016 and 2017) is joined by husband Mark Steele, pianist, composer, and arranger; and daughters Lauren and Sarah Steele, both singer-songwriters and native Oregonians who have grown up in Portland’s rich, supportive musical community.
Their show-stopping set will include Lauren’s original music along with other originals by LaRhonda and Mark, as featured on their many recordings. (Artistic Differences, My Souls Song, Rock Me Baby, and Yes Please).
Touring and recording artists Tyrone Hendrix joins the group on drums, and Andre Zapata on bass, and Doug Rowell on guitar. Rounding out the band is international and local favorite Renato Caranto (Merle Haggard, Esperanza Spalding) on saxophone
