Steve Poltz to perform at El Vaquero Winery
Snazzy Productions will present Steve Poltz in concert at El Vaquero Winery, 2901 Freedom Blvd. in Corralitos, on Sept. 19 at 7pm.
Poltz is a singer-songwriter who originally made it onto the radar of many in the 1990s when he paired up with Jewel. Poltz was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, then moved to California with his family when he was young. He eventually made his way to San Diego to attend college, where he started playing in coffee shops as both a solo artist and with his band The Rugburns.
In 1998, Poltz signed to Mercury Records and released his debut album. He also toured with Jewel and played guitar in her band for a time. However, creative differences led to Poltz leaving Mercury and starting his own label called 98 Pounder.
Over the years, Poltz has developed a reputation as an underground folk hero. His songs are often described as “kids songs for adults.”
Also performing will be local singer-songwriter Michael Gaither.
