After a successful special two-night performance around Halloween in 2015, The Steepwater Band have decided to make the classic Rolling Stones live album, Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out, the theme of their Winter Tour. Dates can be found below.

When picking a group and album for their Halloween shows, singer/guitarist Jeff Massey said, “The Stones are a huge influence on our band, and ‘Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out’ is complete rock n’ roll. It’s rough around the edges… it’s about attitude, the blues, big guitar riffs… it’s got some Chuck Berry & Robert Johnson, and isn’t too far off from what we do in a Steepwater show anyway.” Drummer Joe Winters added, “Ya-Ya’s is perfect for this band. That live album in particular has a spirit and element of going to the edge. So we go out and put ourselves on that line. Then that energy of this live show gets traded back and forth between us and the crowd.”

While their new album won’t be released for a couple more months, bassist Tod Bowers explains why they chose to tour the Stones live album. “People really reacted to those Halloween shows, especially big Stones fans. We thought this could be something fun to do this winter until the new record drops in the spring. You know, give our fans a little something different than just a typical Steepwater show.”

In addition to performing Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out in its entirety, the band will also play hit songs from their Diamond Days: Best of TSB 2006-2014 album that was released in March 2015. “It’s really fun to go from playing classic Stones songs like Jumping Jack Flash, Sympathy for the Devil & Midnight Rambler to our own Steepwater Band tunes like High and Humble or Dance Me a Number,” says guitarist Eric Saylors. “It’s hard not to notice the similar vibe!”
