Lead guitar/backing vocals
Steve Lee is a lifelong guitar player ever since picking up a Mickey Mouse guitar as a toddler mimicking to Elvis Presley. Guitar fascination continued from the earliest Ventures hit singles only to be concreted when seeing The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Early success as a "tweenie" winning the grammar school talent show led to gigs at teen Ice Cream Socials and Bar Mitzvahs. Through the years, Steve has always been in bands playing the best of rock music from Creedence Clearwater, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Crazy Horse to Cream, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin to Jeff Beck, early Fleetwood Mac, James Gang while continuing his education attending Fillmore West and Winterland frequently as well as stints with the high school Jazz, Stage, Concert and Pep bands. Original music soon beckoned with Paradox (SF’s Fab Mab favorites), Moscow (shown on MTV Basement Tapes) among others.
After years and years of playing somewhat progressive muso rock music, Steve rediscovered his first love playing West Coast rock with The Sorentinos since 1994. Joys included sitting in with JJ Cale and working with John Lee Hooker. Life does indeed go on and is now based in England sadly far away from the band, Steve continues to participate in recording with Danny and playing live when possible and with others. "I have played the Fillmore West same night as Peter Green, that's it....finito."
