The SteelDrivers

Time: 8:00 pm
Date: Saturday March 30, 2019
Location: Orpheum Theatre
Address: 200 N. Broadway, Wichita, KS, 67202
Price: $20 - $45
Category: Concert / Live Music
The Tennessean once described the SteelDrivers' sound as “Gutsy, gritty bluegrass songs.” The Philadelphia Inquirer put it even more succinctly. “You can call it power-bluegrass or country soul, but whatever you call it, Nashville’s Steeldrivers have bushels of it.” In fact, The SteelDrivers’ success lies in their consistent growth and ability to reinvent their regimen.

It’s also nurtured the various influences that each member brings to the band. With the emphasis on song structure as to parceling out their parameters, elements of Americana, country, blues, rock and soul all enter the equation. Yet their consistent standing at the IBMA awards –which began when they were voted Best Emerging Artist — testifies to the fact that they’ve been able to maintain a fierce following even while growing their audiences at every interval.

The band plays approximately 75 shows a year, including major festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Merlefest, Wintergrass, Bristol Rhythm and Roots and Telluride Bluegrass Festival. It’s their populist approach that finds their devotees — self-proclaimed “SteelHeads”– traveling hundreds of miles to see them in repeat performances.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
