Former Kansas Frontman Rocks The Capital Theater
Most of our 80’s Rock fans know the name Robby Steinhardt, as the original violinist, frontman and singer from the band KANSAS. Most people thought that Robby was retired, but a packed house at the Capital Theater in Clearwater Florida found out last night.. Robby has come out of retirement to form his own band called Robby Steinhardt & The Music of Kansas, backed by “Stormbringer”, his band from the 80’s.
The show originally scheduled as an outdoor event but due to the storm was moved to the historic Capital Theater. Built in 1921, the Capital Theater was the perfect place for this show.
Known for their soul, funk and rhythm ‘n’ blues music, The Black Honkeys have won awards in multiple categories for three years running in Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay Reader’s Choice Awards. Front man, Brother Phil Esposito, is supported on vocals by the lovely Nicole Simone, with guitarist Greg Czinke, Will Harris on bass, Steven Tanner on drums, John “Dash” Dixon on keyboards, along with the fabulous Ebony & Ivory Horn Section with Scott Myers on trombone and Terry Clark on trumpet.
