The Colors of Gershwin with The Steeles
Consisting of five siblings: J.D., Fred, Jearlyn, Jevetta, and Billy, The Steeles’ singing style is an integral part of the Minnesota sound. They have recorded and performed with Prince, Donald Fagen, Morgan Freeman, George Clinton, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Mavis Staples, Johnny Lang, The Blind Boys of Alabama, A Prairie Home Companion, and others throughout their legendary career.
The family has traveled around the world, filling music halls and theaters with their bold, heartfelt, and melodic sounds, and we’re truly honored to have them joining us at the Ordway next season with their tribute to the music of George Gershwin, “The Colors of Gershwin with The Steeles”.
