Blue collar boogie rock at its finest — “The Joker” and “Take the Money and Run” might be the band’s better known songs, but the Steve Miller Band has 17 excellent albums in the arsenal, 2011’s Let Your Hair Down being the most recent. A couple of live albums followed in 2014, and we’ve been waiting for new stuff since then. But this is a band with an amazing back catalog which should mean a great show at the Greek. Members have come and gone over the years, with Miller the only constant. But guitarist Kenny Lee Lewis and drummer Gordy Knudtson have been there since the ’80s, and guitarist Jacob Peterson is the “new boy,” having joined in 2011. It’s a real band, and this will be a really good show. Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives open.
The Steve Miller Band plays with Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21 at the Greek Theatre.
