Steve Jarrell began his long entertainment career in the summer of 1962 singing and playing sax at the American Legion Post 55 in historic Fredericksburg, Virginia. Originally from Winston Salem, N.C., Steve would visit Myrtle Beach, S.C. in the summers. As a child, he was introduced to the sounds of “Carolina Beach Music” that played on the juke boxes at the beach. Steve saw his first “live” band play in the gym at Beulah Elementary School in Surry County, N.C. at age 10 and from that day forward, he knew that entertainment would be his life’s calling. The first band was called The Rebels. They played every Fri. & sat. night at the American Legion for $2.00 each. In six months time, they had a pay raise to $5.00 each. By the fall of ’63, he was playing school dances and frat parties at the University of Virginia with Don Ballard & The Exciters. The summer of ’63 would also be his first Va. Beach performance at Seaside Amusement Park....

A bluesy blast of baritone bombast.  Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty. Rock ’n’ roll, from Nashville. Formed from Mississippi mud, tinged with British mod. Bruised by the blues.  Baptized by Buck and Chuck. Psychiatric psycho-rootsy. Sizzling, glistening, uneasy listening. As it has been for three decades, it is now and ever shall be. Webb Wilder.   Hardly a purist, Webb has described the music...

After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing three albums since 2011. A recent review from Roots Music Reports claims Thompson’s song portray “muscular blues-and soul-rock strong on soulful vocals and cut-above-the-norm originals.” With his smooth, gripping vocal stylings and his perfect musical taste on anything with a string, Thompson is what’s referred to as a “musician’s musician.” Considered a “must see” act of the Northeast Region.
