The record business is in serious disarray which means that many acts are on perma-tour status. In my opinion there are few things better than live music.
This past weekend, Fat Tone Guitars had the pleasure of hosting a hard touring Chicago band, The Steepwater Band, in our showroom. Playing close to 150 shows a year, The Steepwater Band is made up of Jeff Massey on guitar and vocals, Tod Bowers on bass and Joe Winters on drums. Taking their cue from both classic British bands like The Faces and Humble Pie and American bands like The Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Steepwater boys play heartfelt roots based heavy music. While their music has the feel of classic rock, it’s performed with total feeling in the here and now.
I’m a big fan of their tunes and their sound and they really rocked the house at Fat Tone Guitars.

You can buy their latest album, Grace and Melody, here.
As you can see from Jeff’s pedalboard, he’s a connoisseur of great tone. Great pedals on this board include Analog Man, BMF Effects, Electro-Harmonix, Klon, Dunlop and more.
