Multiple Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steve Winwood has left his stamp all over the lexicon of popular music with his generation-spanning catalog of chart-toppers, including “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys,” and “Higher Love.” Steve was only a lad when he led The Spencer Davis Group across the pond to help the British Invasion dethrone King Elvis, after which he continued his musical conquest in seminal bands such as Blind Faith and Traffic before settling into an incredibly successful solo career. His affable and malleable tenor burns like a night-train smokestack but can turn to pure silk on a dime, leading him to a watershed of top-10 classics and a spot on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers. Behind the keys of his trusty Hammond organ, Steve acts as a human jukebox that contains 50 years' worth of hits and the ability to digest quarters, as fans sway to feel-good classics such as “Back in the High Life” and “Valerie.”
