12/31/2014 - Steven Seagal & Thunderbox now Exclusively Represented to Performing Arts Centers in North America


We are proud to announce that FCE is now Exclusively Representing "STEVEN SEAGAL & THUNDERBOX" to Performing Arts Centers in North America.  

 

Steven Seagal has been an accomplished musician for many years now, in fact you might be surprised to discover that Steven has actually been a musician a lot longer than an actor; he actually got his first guitar at the age of 12 and has been playing the blues ever since.  

Steven is a purist when it comes to the blues and he remains true to its roots which is evident in his 2007 release ”Mojo Priest,” which celebrates the power of many of the musical influences that have compelled Steven to write and bring the art of storytelling to his songs.

Critically acclaimed as one of the best blues albums released of that year“Mojo Priest” captured the essence of not only Steven’s smooth yet gritty guitar style, but also the essence of blues greats such as Muddy Waters, BB King, Bo Diddley, Robert Lockwood Jr, Ko Ko Taylor, James Cotton, Willie “Pine Top” Perkins and Hubert Sumlin. 

Come visit our booth #547 (in America's Hall I, Level 2) at the APAP Conference this January 10 to 12, 2015 at the New York Hilton Midtown, in New York City (1335 Avenue of the Americas at 54th Street).  We are booking dates now for the 2015-2016 touring season.
