July 10 STEVE THOMAS BAND Rock Hits of the 1980s
When Steve Thomas begins to sing, it’s not uncommon to hear someone say, “How does he hit those notes?” He has an amazingly high and powerful range, and it gives Steve a strong connection with his audience. Listeners have compared his voice to Steve Perry of Journey, Sting of The Police, Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Steve Walsh of Kansas, Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship, and other great high tenors of rock, yet, Steve's voice is uniquely his own. No one does the rock greats of the 1980s like Steve Thomas.
