Steel Wool to play Nehalem Oct. 8 (video)


Steel Wool is acoustic rock reborn, according to fans.

And they’re bringing their unique sound to the North Coast Performing Arts Theatre, at 9th Street and B Street in Nehalem, Oct. 8. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 at the door, or $9 in advance by visiting www.steelwoolband.com.

Inspired by CSN, the Eagles, and Paul Simon, reviews state these four players breathe fresh life into deep grooves cut by time and experience, bringing acoustic rock into the 21st century. Steel Wool is a harmony loving, acoustic rock band spinning on the edges of funk, rock, folk and traditional Zimbabwean mbira music – happily serious and family friendly, too.

What once was a 300-seat school auditorium in Nehalem has been refurbished and is now home to a variety of performing arts and special events.

The Steel Wool performance will be a sit down concert. But, organizers said they “expect some folks will not be able to keep from dancing.

The band will be performing their “hits” (Fat Jesus on a Bicycle, My Country Fair), their newest mbira tunes (When the Day is Done, Flower), their most rocking electric guitar songs (Let’s Dance, Electro Sheep Therapy), and share stories of love and loss that “will truly touch your heart.”
