Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Steve Winwood

When: Tue., Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2013

A member of Brit rock acts such as the Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and Go, Steve Winwood went the solo route in the late '70s. That decision would eventually prove to be a wise one; in the '80s, Winwood solo tunes such as "While You See A Chance" and "Higher Love," the latter of which got him a Grammy, were huge hits. The tunes had just the right mix of bluesy vocals and synths to appeal to a mass audience. While Winwood hasn't had a hit on commercial radio in years, he's never disappeared. He came through town in 2005 for a sold out show at House of Blues and has toured and recorded steadily ever since. He's currently touring with Rod Stewart but is playing a few headlining dates, including this gig at the Akron Civic. (Niesel)
