Steve Madewell began playing at the Trolley Stop in Dayton, Ohio, in 1979. On many occasions Steve was joined by a long string of talented musicians which included Vance Wissinger, Astrid Socrates, Bill Baldock, and Michael Clutter. This particular line-up became the Steve Madewell Band.
As time and life continued, this group spread out, with Bill now living outside of Nashville, and Steve east of Cleveland. Vance Astrid and Michael still reside in Southwestern Ohio, and when the opportunity presents, they will try and step up to the plate.
And such was the case in the summer of 2021, when the SMB performed two shows at the Trolley Stop.
