STEVE'S BANDS
"The Niagara Region certainly has its fair share of great musical talent, actually more than its fair share, but there are a few artists who have quietly been going about their business for years, that sort of are a bit off the radar, but really are the true gems. One such artist is bassist and singer Steve Goldberger. For many years Steve and his group of musician friends, "The Niagara Rhythm Section," had a weekend residency at the Anchorage Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake. When that closed down they moved their shows to The Old Winery Restaurant on Niagara Stone Road, and every Friday and Saturday night you can find them jamming out with a rotating series of guests. The shows are always top-notch and highly entertaining. Now his backing group is "The Old Winos" on Fridays, but still "The Niagara Rhythm Section" on Saturdays. "
