Something wildly talented this way comes from the duo of Steve Stoeckel and Keith Shamel, live 2-5 p.m. Sunday at Legal Remedy Brewing in Rock Hill.
Stoeckel is a changeling/shape-shifter channeling music in multiple forms. An ongoing member of the iconic Spongetones, he can also appear in the Jamie and Steve Duo, among the Pop Co-Op, and wherever the muse spirit calls.
A multi-talented singer songwriter/guitar/bass playing even uke-strumming dynamo. Stoeckel draws from the power of pop rock, heavily influenced by the British Invasion. In this instance, he is appearing as part of a duo with Keith Shamel. I called out to Stoeckel for wisdom and to discover more.
“Let's see,” Stoeckel said “Keith Shamel is an amazing guitarist, and sings also. He plays quite a bit with Shana Blake in a duo and also a full band lineup. He is involved with the Tosco Music Parties, and that’s where I began playing along with him, at the annual Tosco Beatle Tribute.”
Regarding the show Sunday, “We'll do lots of Beatles, Badfinger. an XTC song Elvis Costello, ELO, Blind Faith, Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel, lots of McCartney post Beatles.” said Stoeckel. Look for originals in the future from the duo of Steve Stoeckel and Keith Shamel Sunday at Legal Remedy Brewing, Rock Hill.
