Band of the Week: Steal Your Face
While at a Steal Your Face show, expect to get up close and personal - that is, if you allow the bandmembers to get up close and personal with you.
"We love to interact with our audience," says Garry Engel, guitarist and vocalist for the band. "We consider our fans as a large family, and it means so much to us that our fans feel the same way. So, during our shows, it feels like we are affecting our audience in that close, positive way with constant interaction. It brings up the intensity of our performance."
And with that intense performance comes high praise - Steal Your Face was honored with the award for "Best Jam Band - Live Performance" by the Montgomery/Bucks, PA, Music Awards.
"We are a talented group of musicians who create magic when we perform together," Engel says. "We truly love and enjoy each other, as well as the music we play. We show that on and off stage."
