K96.3 Presents Steve Miller Band
with special guest Matthew Curry
on Friday, April 11, 2014
at the South Okanagan Events Centre

Do you have your tickets yet? One of rock music’s all-time greats, the Steve Miller Band will be in Penticton next month. On Friday, April 11, 2014, the Steve Miller Band will bring their 2014 Canadian Tour to the South Okanagan Events Centre and serenade fans with their trademark blues-rock sound.

The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. In its early years, the Steve Miller Band was a cornerstone of the burgeoning underground FM rock radio stations that were springing up across the country. The Steve Miller Band’s 1973 single “The Joker” was an instant anthem, a breakthrough smash that shot all the way to No. 1. His 1978 album, “Greatest Hits 1974-78,” became one of the best-selling releases of all-time, selling millions every year through the end of the century. At the height of the classic rock movement, the Steve Miller Band was one of the defining figures.
Some people call him the Space Cowboy. Some call him the Gangster of Love. Whatever you call him, Steve Miller is making the best music of his life. In 2010, 17 years after the release of Wide River, the Steve Miller Band released Bingo! The energetically rendered album was nominated as “Blues Rock Album” of the year by the Blues Foundation. Let Your Hair Down was released in 2011. The album shines with some of the finest guitar playing ever recorded by the Steve Miller Band.
Today, the Steve Miller Band and classic rock go hand in hand. The Steve Miller Band is brand name rock that millions have come to trust.
Hit songs, from 17 studio albums and three live albums, include “Rock ‘n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” “Swingtown,” “The Joker” and “Abracadabra.”

Doors: 6:30 p.m. ~ Show: 7:30 p.m.

Publisher and CEO. First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, them enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
