Listen to fun acoustic songs at the Botanic Garden.
August 19, 2013
With an unmatched sense of humor, charming presence and catchy melodies, southern California's Steve Poltz is a fan favorite in the acoustic music scene. Poltz has been writing his fun, often satirical acoustic songs since the 1990s (with his former band The Rugburns), and scored several major hits in Canada, the United States and Australia. Since then, he's released six albums and performed for countless audiences across North America. Poltz is currently touring Canada and the U.S. performing with his guitars Smokey Joe, Flowerpot and Trailer-Trash.
"Steve Poltz never fails to bring his creativity and extravagant personality to each show," said Maryann Torrez, BioPark Events Manager. "His music just makes people feel happy."
