Tin Pan South BMI Show feat. Steve Cropper & Jeffrey Steele 

When: Thu., March 31, 9 p.m. 2011
Here’s a show featuring two songwriters with mind-boggling credits. Steve Cropper would be a major figure in pop history if only for his laconic, meticulous guitar style, which powered innumerable classics released by Memphis’ Stax Records. Still, the Missouri native co-wrote such indelible classics as “Knock on Wood,” “(Sittin’ on the) Dock of the Bay” and “In the Midnight Hour,” but that only scratches the surface — among other things, Cropper helped produce many a hit for Stax, and remains a deep, dazzling guitarist. Hailing from Burbank, Calif., Jeffrey Steele moved to Nashville in 1994 after enjoying a successful run as a performer, and proceeded to write mega-hits for the likes of Montgomery Gentry, Faith Hill and Gerald Levert, who remade Steele’s 1993 “She’d Give Anything” as “I’d Give Anything” and took it into the charts the following year. Expect some classic songs and great guitar playing.
