Thunder & Lightning. Two words that can be used to describe the incendiary sound that is SteelCity. Thunder by way of a booming, monstrous rhythm section. Lightning in the form of heavy, riff-driven guitars, soaring lead vocals, and lush harmonies. This is hard rock music that truly mesmerizes the listener the very instant they hear it unleashed. Brash yet sophisticated, unapologetic yet still heartwarming, SteelCity provides an unabashed homage to the golden age of hard rock, harkening back and speaking directly to you, becoming part of the soundtrack of your life.
Initially started as a solo project by founding member, principal songwriter, and guitarist Mike Floros, SteelCity evolved into the band that it is today. By carefully assembling the most skilled, talented rock musicians available, Mike formed a band that is a vaunted force in the melodic hard rock world. Enter Roy Cathey, lead vocalist extraordinaire. As a member of the early-90s sensation Cold Sweat, his Herculean voice has been appreciated by audiences worldwide. Holding down the bottom end is Jason Cornwell. An experienced studio and touring musician, “The Boston Bassman” has shared the stage with such luminaries as Eric Martin. BJ Zampa brings the heat from behind the drum kit. As a member of many iconic bands, BJ brings style, substance, and fury to fuel the band. Rounding out the group is Tony Stahl, whose keyboards bring texture and depth to SteelCity’s songs, thus completing the shape of their sound.
2020 promises to be a great year for the band, as the release of Mach II will bring their guitar-driven sound into the homes of its fans and to stages across the globe. Drawing from their vast array of hard and classic rock influences, Mach II promises to deliver “the goods” and find its way into the souls of its listeners. Live, SteelCity will earn its way into their hearts.
