Welcome to – home of a multi-genre musicians' consortium called STEWARDS ECLECTRIC.

To our valued repeat visitors, followers, and admitted fans: welcome back. It is for your ears we keep this organic music machine humming. Creativity is unpredictable ~ which is how it should be. The idea is and always was to make new music and have some fun. We're serious about the music but beyond that... well, see for yourself.

The main thing here is the music. As always, we invite you to listen using the music players at the bottom of this page. (Instructions there if you're new to this; it's FREE.) If you do not have music-quality computer speakers, we hope you might use headphones or earbuds if you got 'em ~ for the full sonic experience. (Our obsessive recording engineer pleads for this!) There is no obligation, and no left-handed musician will call.

This collection of musicians, singers, techies, friends, and occasional combatants includes some real characters ~ they would be the first to admit it! ~ and as head writer and director, The Steward rides herd on the talents of Toots Headstrong, Sings Two Bears, Lovechio Armitage, Thaler N. Shorter, Dawn Busz-Rider, Trombone Lefty, Fingers Arachnid, Floren de Kichen, Chubbie Pickens, Mr. E. S. Carpenter, Ludwig Von Slingerlund, Sarah Ann Green Eagle, Floral Clustah, Maxie Ripnit, and Lurch Hooper ~ among others.

Of course, you may have another reason for being here. Seeking info about some music heard recently, shared, streamed, or on a playlist? Are you searching for info about a particular band [Bobby Comstock Band, Headwind, Strange Brew, Farmhouse Garage, etc.] or about a particular song, recording artist or musician, past or current? Check ‘Bandography’ on the ABOUT page; SONG INFO; pics and artwork in PHOTO/ART GALLERY; and wade through the many tidbits ~ both relevant and obscure ~ in our often quoted (if not outright plagiarized!) Q&A pages, © (!) 

Then send comments, questions, love and hate mail by using the email addresses on the Q&A page or the CONTACT form there. We answer many inquiries directly, and if interesting on a broader scale, sometimes post the exchange. Thanks.


 Continue onward!

One question we  may get so often that I don't put it in Q&A: "Why  do you always have a UFO somewhere"?

Well,  artists traditionally try to show what they perceive to be the truth. And the UFO is an icon of the truth about humanity ~ its past, present and future ~ and how We, the People have been denied that. 

Neil Armstrong's entire quote from the moon (July 20, 1969) was:  "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. The UFOs are watching us as we are walking on the moon.That big clunky glitch in the audio just after 'mankind' was your government cutting off the truth. (Previously, when preparing to land the Apollo 11 LEM, the crew transmitted: "Oh, my God, you wouldn't believe it. These babies are huge, sir, enormous.")

It's no good to get caught up in fear. Some ETs are here to help us, some only help themselves. I imagine it's like that all across the galaxy. Ultimately, the truth will out – with  help from those who really are our Star Friends. 

*   *   *     *   *   *

Until then, take a  breath.  Hava mugga joe, a cuppa tea, glassa wine, steina brew, shotta scotchsplasha juice, or a cool drinka wahwah ~ and roll some of our tunes of remarkably different genres. We might as well  have some fun!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

Some of our musical categories are NOT recognized  genres... (Ain't that true, Spotify?) ... much like the word "Eclectric."

eclectric |ek LEK trik| adjective: deriving energetically charged ideas, styles, or tastes from a broad and diverse range of sources, as in their musical tastes are eclectric.

Q & A ~ we HEAR from LISSNERS :

Diana B. from Alaska comments and asks Q. Hey! I saw you with Chuck in Pittsburgh in '73. Chuck was late getting onstage and the crowd was getting antsy. But after he walked onstage the crowd went crazy!!! Chuck looked like he was having a great time. I remember you guys playing great backup and some pretty heavy bass. What brand of bass guitar was that? I've seen pictures and can't quite make it out. Any other memories of that awesome concert would be much appreciated!! That concert is an excellent memory of mine. Thanks for your time answering

A. The ‘Richard Nader’s Rock & Roll Revival’ concert you recall at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena was probably my 3rd time playing with Mr. Berry; the revitalized four-piece Comstock Band (that added me as the young pup on bass) was only a few months old. [See BANDOGRAPHY on the ABOUT page.] As usual, we opened the show with a revamped version of Bobby’s R&R medley – new packaging for same oldies. I was using the sunburst Fender Precision I’d special-ordered lefty in '67 through Collins Music (Bloomsburg PA) when still a school kid. Spent every cent I could find to buy it including my older brother’s Indian head coin collection at face value. Thanks, Gale...

Q. What's the real story with this Hall of Fame stuff? Who are you kidding?" - sent by 'N. Credulous'

A. Everybody, N., everybody, - and, while accurate in some respects, it has all the authenticity of your name! [See the article in WHAT'S NEW, satire contributed by a veteran pro in the biz.]
