Fifty years as a top-flite drummer will bestow upon you all the wisdom and chops required to make yourself a name in the Canadian landscape of musical legends. In the case of Steve Negus, playing relentlessly in the Toronto club scene in the 70’s with bands like Shelter, proved just the education needed to answer the call to sit behind the kit for the group Pockets, soon to change their name to SAGA. Pioneering a brand of R&B infused prog rock, SAGA was a Canadian phenomenon into the 80’s and retains a huge following with their seminal release Worlds Apart recently going platinum in the U.S. (1,000,000 copies).
A multiple gold record and Juno recipient, Steve Negus is also a Hamilton based producer and engineer who makes great recordings at Blue Room Studio where he works his craft to perfection – like he always has.
This show in smokin as we play three cuts from Steve’s solo album Dare to Dream, one from Jerry Johnson’s Barber’s Chair and a surprise slice of vinyl from Selina Martin.
