LITTLE STEVEN AND THE DISCIPLES OF SOUL: US Soulfire Tour 2017 @ Danforth Music Hall (Oct 9, 2017)

A little bit of music royalty from Asbury Park, New Jersey, graced the Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall for Canadian Thanksgiving.

Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul armed with a 15-piece band played to a turkey-hangover crowd of Springsteen devotees.

Promoting the latest release LP “Soulfire”, attendees were treated to revisiting songs that span the length of his career as artist, performer, producer, arranger, and songwriter, focusing directly on the hugely influential “soul horns-meet-rock ‘n’ roll guitars” approach he first pioneered on Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes’ classic first three albums.
