The “It’s No Joke” concert features the outstanding Brosky-Meyer Band on Saturday, April 1st.
Steve Brosky has been called many things: eclectic, quintessential blue-collar, a troubadour, the everyman. His music is and always has been, a reflection of life around all of us. Brosky’s new CD carries on that tradition. The disk is a mix of all things Steve… blues, rock, traditional, gospel… all done in the poetic style we have come to expect from …‘The Broz.’
Along with the remarkable guitarist and vocalist, Jimmy Meyer, the duo brings lifetimes of musical innovation to the Mauch Chunk Opera House. Steve and Jimmy have opened for B.B. King, Bo Diddley, Leon Russell, Monty Montgomery, Robin Trower, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks, Robby Krieger, Al Stewart, The Beach Boys, Johnny Winter, and Warren Zevon, to name just a few.
He grew up in the shadows of the industrial smoke stacks in the working-class city of Allentown, PA, and after his youth Steve picked up his guitar and embarked on his rock ‘n’ roll dreams, giving birth to his unusual and heartfelt musical style. Street characters, hipster jive and swagger, love songs, cool Cadillacs, reminiscences, and social commentary are portrayed with his trademark combination of R&B and garage band music. In this show, Brosky & Meyer and their band alternate between acoustic and electric music, showing their remarkable strength and easy familiarity with them.
