We welcome back Steve Grills and The Roadmasters to B-Side.
“Blues guitarist Steve Grills is about as low key as they come; a tres cool operator that wields a red-hot guitar. Parked stage left, he puts his band, The Roadmasters, through the paces as he gives the audience a tour of the blues – a sampler platter, if you will, or perhaps passages off yellowy pages ripped from an encyclopedia of the blues. Mixed in with Grills’ referential and reverential treatment lies the man’s own sound, one that weaves in and out with the ghosts he admires and conjures.” – Jeff Spevak / Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
Since 1994 Steve and Lisa Lowden have been playing music together as a couple and as creative energies that found each other. Combining their love of acoustic oldies to recent greats, they bring great harmonies and beautiful melodies.
“Someone told me recently that if you live in Rochester, and you’ve never heard of Mitty & The Followers, then you just haven’t been paying attention. Believe me, I am all ears. Eric “Mitty” Moore – a.k.a the Ambassador of Soul – leads this powerful, energetic R & B outfit with solid, sophisticated bass lines and a staggering vocal range.” – David Yockel, Jr. / CITY Newspaper
Amanda will be hosting and performing and has brought together 3 talented women to grace the B-Side stage for the second edition of this series.

Chrissie has had words and music in her soul from the day she was born. Following in her pianist mother’s footsteps – she studied classical music throughout high school and college as a bassoon player. Throughout these years she dealt with a lot of the pain, emotions and things that vexed her soul through writing and ended up with a Bachelor’s degree in English focusing on Creative Writing. After starting to sing one day and picking up the guitar a decade and a half later she was finally able to merge both loves – music and writing. Her music is acoustic pop/rock with a message. She writes from the heart about things those things that move her soul and it’s the combination of catchy, rhythmic melodies her music stands apart. She is an energetic, captivating performer – a true story teller at heart; in short an act not to be missed.
The music of Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, and many other classic acoustic blues performers comes together in Steve’s clean finger-picking and gutsy resonator work.
Steve has performed all across Western New York, as a solo performer, as the front man for W.B. Blues, The Tabletop Three and as part of shows that he is known for putting together with other great acoustic performers from the region.

Leah & the Upheaval performs an eclectic mix of jazz standards, 70s pop hits, contemporary R&B tunes, and original songs drawing upon all of these elements.
Freshly minted in August 2016, the group is a configuration of veteran Rochester musicians, featuring the bluesy vocals of Leah Fiorucci. Leah began singing the blues with her father, Danny Fiorucci, when she was just a toddler. She has since refined her craft over the years and assembled a show that is at times moving, at times playful, and always irresistibly danceable!
