ABOUT THE PERFORMER

Steve Grills & The Roadmasters

For Steve Grills, the Blues has been a life long journey.Growing up he heard the music of Big Bill Broonzy, Leadbelly and Lightnin’ Hopkins from his father’s record collection. Through the Beatles, Steve discovered Chuck Berry and he has not looked back since. He has searched out the roots of Rock and Roll, uncovering many great artists who have influenced and inspired him. Primarily among these are Robert Lockwood Jr., Earl Hooker, Freddie King and Albert Collins. Steve befriended Robert Lockwood Jr after meeting him in 1978. In 1992, Robert  invited Steve and his band to perform at his Legendary Blues Festival near Cleveland,Ohio. Steve later recorded with Robert on Shakin Smith’s cd Harmonica Wizard.
Steve and his band the Roadmasters ( named after Earl Hooker’s band) draw their repertoire from these and other artists, allowing contemporary audiences the opportunity to discover the vitality of the music of these legendary and influential musicians.

2020 Rochester Lilac Festival announcement

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.

As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.

Hang in there and stay healthy.
