Why: While the Boss is away, Little Stevie still must play. Steven Van Zandt, aka Little Steven, aka Miami Steve, is one of the busiest men in rock and roll. He starred in The Sopranos and Lillyhammer, runs the Underground Garage and Renegade Nation, tours the world with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and produces such shows as The Rascals: Once upon a Dream on Broadway. But with Bruce first spending a year on the Great White Way with his (mostly) one-man show and now taking a year off from touring, Stevie has returned to his solo career with a vengeance, bringing back the Disciples of Soul, with whom he recorded such great albums as Men without Women and Freedom — No Compromise in the 1980s. Steve and his band have been on the road since March 2017, first in support of Soulfire, consisting of reworkings of some of his best songs given to other artists, and now Summer of Sorcery, his first album of new material since 1999’s Born Again Savage, which featured songs from 1989-90 recorded in 1994. Tickets are now on sale to catch Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul at the Beacon on November 6, with a very special opening act, Peter Wolf and the Midnight Travelers; Wolf’s latest album is 2016’s A Cure for Loneliness. Teachers get in free as part of Stevie’s TeachRock initiative.
