Steve Rodgers and Elaine Palmer perform at the Waiting Room restaurant at Eaglescliffe on Sunday.

May 18th 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Waiting Room - Station Road, Eaglescliffe

Singer songwriter, has been busy this year recording his much requested second LP. His songs reflect his passion for life's depth, mystery and wonder, recorded with his new band of like-minded musicians. Critics compare his music to a mix of Jack Johnson, Paolo Nutini and Cat Stevens. You could add one more name to that list, you might well have heard of Steve’s dad, Paul Rodgers. Of Middlesbrough.

Elaine Palmer is completing a 3 date mini tour this weekend with Steve. The gigs at the Fisherman’s Hartlepool Headland and Chapters Deli Stokesley are both just about sold out so you’re only chance could be to go to this Waiting Room Sunday evening.

Elaine is promoting her new album Fire and Flames. For my money this is Elaine’s most accomplished album yet. A real step up in her recording career, Fire and Flames sees Elaine’s songwriting mature and flourish with lively arrangements fronting her backing band. This is a rare chance to see Elaine before she sets off on a national tour fronting a band over the summer.

Steve Rodgers grew up surrounded by great music and at a young age he used to listen to LP's from his father's eclectic record collection, mostly blues records, The Beatles and his favourite, Led Zeppelin.

At 14 he began to write his own songs on guitar and piano. He started a band with his friends at 17, 'Lost Sons of Davros'. From the 'Lost Sons' came 'Boa' with a few new members including Steve's sister Jasmine - they created two great albums - their first single 'Duvet' was the title track to the Japanese multi award-winning animation series Manga 'Lain - Serial Xperiments'.They toured the States, the UK and after much partying, Steve decided to follow his own path. Along the way he saw how amazing and deep life really was and wanted to reflect that in his songs.

In the past few years, he has ‘special guested’ at Wembley for Bad Company, Aerosmith's Joe Perry, and the Robert Randolph Band. His touring has included supporting Bad Company in the UK and Japan and has headlined dates in the UK and Canada. During 2013 Steve supported The Deborah Bonham Band and Midge Ure on their respective tours in the UK and Europe.

In 2014 Steve will be touring with Sons of Cream and the Chris Spedding Band as well as releasing his new album.
