Where does a band's story start? With this band, it all started when Steve placed an ad on the Berkshire live Website some 3 or so years ago..... But maybe the real start is from when the music impacted and inspired them. In Steve's case, that was in his early teens, with the blues inspired pop/rock groups of the sixties, but most potently with the arrival of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Peter Green and a host of others - including from the US, the brilliant Mike Bloomfield. These great musicians - and others - showed the way back to the early 20th Century, into the melting pot of the Mississippi Delta, New Orleans and later Chicago to the roots of the blues and eventually what became Blues-Rock music. Steve went on to play in a number of bands who didn't quite set the world on fire - although it did get close at times. The Blues has been Steve's inspiration throughout his career, and his fretwork these days is a testimony to a lifetime's love of the genre and it's offspring Blues-Rock, as exemplified on the band's debut album Lookin' Back, Movin' On, on which Steve has written the lion's share of the tracks. Check out 'Little Miss Blue' for its' authentic Free feel, sleazy vocal and outstanding guitar solo, that exemplifies the band's approach. He has been a session guitarist, is a band leader and songwriter, and has an authentic feel for the blues; plus a jazz-rock edge that sets him apart.

With the recent departure of Scott Hunter, the drum stool has been impressively filled by Bob Pearce, veteran of numerous well known blues, rock and country bands, most notably stints with Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople and Bad Company; plus Hogans Heroes, featuring Albert Lee and Jerry Hogan. This grounding along with gigging with his brother Dave put him in good stead to understand the requirements and needs of working alongside top musicians both in the studio and on the road. His experiences includes top studios and festivals in Wembley, Nashville, St Louis and Europe including the Albert Hall and Abbey Road as well as many local local pubs and clubs; from National tv and European tv to national and local Radio . Bob has had the pleasure of coping with these demands and as such, has truly experienced the highs and lows of the music business. Having recently joined The Steve Summers Band, it opens another new and exciting chapter in a long and exciting career.
