Steel City Sound: Birmingham’s Horn Band
When it comes to music to tap your foot or clap your hands to look no further than the 12 piece modern horn band Steel City Sound. Leader and trumpet player Terry Webster helps combine familiar praise and worship songs with horn stylings of bands like Chicago and Tower of Power. The result is an amazing blend of sounds that bring generations of families together in a way seldom seen by any other music genre. “Steel City Sound has been performing together since 2013 and we have already worked with some world class musicians like Dee Dee Sharp, Chubby Checker, and most recently Bucky Covington,” Webster said.
The band’s high energy and exceptional cohesion keep audiences engaged with songs like “Everlasting God” and “10,000 Reasons.” Webster’s friend and accomplished composer Jeff Anderson has provided music for over 2,000 churches and partners with Steel City Sound. The band and Anderson have teamed up to produce Retro Hymns 2 set to debut August 27. Anderson is thrilled to work with the band and admires Webster’s excitement and passion for music. “I write music I believe will move people and work with the groups to translate it to live and Steel City Sound does it phenomenally,” Anderson said.
In addition to putting on fantastic shows wherever the band travels, they also minister to the lost when the opportunity arises. This could not be possible for Terry without the support of his wife Tammy who has been an integral part of the ministry from day one and also helped in naming the band. When he’s not traveling with the band, Terry calls Glennwood Baptist in Morris his church home and serves as worship leader.
Beginning Sunday September 4, Glennwood Baptist is hosting a Super September Celebration Series you will not want to miss. Furthermore, September 11, the Steel City Sound will be the opening concert for the series performing at 6 p.m. The series will also feature Crimson Ridge in concert and a prophecy conference with John Killian among other noteworthy guests.
