It’s entertaining, informative and it ‘works’. Look out for this show. You will not regret it.[/us_testimonial][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

Steve Thompson has written songs that have been recorded by Celine Dion, Sheena Easton, Elkie Brooks (riding high once again on BBC Radio 2)’, The Hollies, The Searchers, The Tygers of Pan Tang, Baby Ford, Colin Blunstone, Elaine Page and Chris Farlowe.‘Steve Thompson Songwriter’ features Steve’s own band playing new versions of the songs that he’s written for many of these and other artists. In the show, he also tells the stories behind these songs as well as anecdotes from his time in the music industry, working closely with an equally impressive list of Producers such as Gus Dudgeon ( Elton John, Chris Rea); Rodger Bain (Black Sabbath); Christopher Neil (Mike & The Mechanics, Marillion, Gerry Rafferty) and Peter Collins (Rush, Gary Moore, Bon Jovi)……

As Steve reflects; “when I was doing all this stuff back in the seventies, eighties and nineties  I had no idea I was creating history. Now with my new show with the band I’m having a terrific time telling the stories and sharing that history. There seems to be a genuine thirst to engage with this”

In a long and varied career, Steve also wrote and produced some key recordings during the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) including Raven, Venom (both huge influences on rock giants, Metallica) and The Tygers of Pan Tang, who at one time featured another collaborator of Steve’s – guitarist John Sykes, who went on to join David Coverdale in Whitesnake.

The show features the stories behind the compositions and insights that promise to be as humorous as they are interesting!

This is a fascinating and unique project, reflecting the creativity and variety of the North East music scene, with some of the region’s best singers and musicians building a new platform for Steve’s best songs. The line-up is Steve Thompson on guitar, Terry Slesser (who fronted guitarist the late Paul Kossoff’s post Free band, Crawler) and Jen Normandale Vocals, John Dawson on bass, Steve Dolder (Prefab Sprout) on drums and Dave Chapman on Keyboards. This is a highly accomplished team of musicians:
