On June 29, 2013, Steele Cookin’ performed as part of the Summer Concert Series in Tazewell.This band is centered around the guitar of Teddy Steele whose style reflects some of his many influences such as Billy Gibbons and Eric Clapton. Steele knows when to slow it down and when to burn the house down. He has been a well-known figure in the blues scene of Southwest Virginia and has also played The White Mountain Boogie and Blues Fest as well as the Cincinnati Blues fest with Deborah Coleman and Albert Cummings. Teddy is accompanied by vocalist Rebecca Tinsley whose style and influences are among Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi. Along with the talented rhythm section of George Bowen (sax, slide guitar, harmonica), Tom Pridgen (drums) and Ashley Steele (bass) you have a band that you will want to see time and time again.
