Greg Waters & The Broad Street Boogie
_With influences ranging from The Black Crowes to Stevie Wonder to Paul Simon to The Allman Brothers, Greg Waters & The Broad Street Boogie has a diverse roots-retro vibe that is extremely contagious. "We're all in it together right? It's about everybody having a little fun and getting down to the roots," Waters says of the live performances. "I think we have a little something for everybody." This is quite apparent in The Boogie's ability to belt out a 3 minute pop song one night and transform that song into a 5-minute improvisational jam the next. The Broad Street Boogie brings a number of musical weapons to their live shows: jazz/funk drumming, southern rock guitar licking, diverse keyboards styling, an occasional horn section, thick vocal harmonies, experience, and a real love of the game. This sort of diversity and passion for music has really captured audiences over the past few yearsthroughout Wisconsin and the Midwest.
Over a 20 year span (which includes 14 years as frontman for the Midwest favorites, The Cool Waters Band), Waters has recorded over a dozen albums and toured nearly a quarter of the country. "I don't hit the open road quite as often any more, but I still love making the music," admits Waters. His latest album can be found at www.gregwatersmusic.com.
