Steve Katz studied guitar with Dave Van Ronk and the Reverend Gary Davis. There were many other young musicians around Greenwich Village during this time who were as obsessed with American roots music as Steve. Many would look for a common ground in which to play music together and they found it in “jug band” music. Steve and Stefan Grossman, along with John Sebastian, Maria Muldaur, and David Grisman formed the Even Dozen Jug Band. They recorded an album in 1964. In 1965, Steve joined Danny Kalb in the Blues Project. They recorded three albums and performed at the Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock while together in their first incarnation. Steve then became a founding member of Blood, Sweat and Tears, which won three Grammys and sold millions of records worldwide. After BS&T, Steve went on to produce two Lou Reed albums, both of which went into Billboard’s Top Ten. Steve then went on to become a Vice-President of Mercury Records where he signed NRBQ, passed on U2 rather signing and producing several albums for the seminal Irish band, Horslips. Steve recently published his memoir “Blood, Sweat and My Rock ‘n’ Roll Years” and is now touring an evening of music and conversation.
