Steve Brosky draws a crowd in Catty

Steve Brosky’s Big Lil’ Band presented fans with a variety of sets on the green at the George Taylor House June 18. The band was once the favored band at Catasauqua’s heralded Mother’s Apron Bar and Grill.

“This is like a step back in time,” said Chris Clugston, who coordinates entertainment at the historic house. Most of those attending had seen Brosky perform in in earlier years at the bar.

Brosky’s unique sound blends local lore into his music. Backup players for the band are Jimmy Meyer, Wayne “Paco” Maura on drums, and Suavak Zaniesienko.

“The band’s fans enjoy this kind of outing. Brosky still has a good following in the area,” said Emily Zacharda, director of the George Taylor House.

The proceeds from this event will go toward the restoration project taking place at the house.

The gate fee was $5 with beer available at $2.50 a glass and pulled pork barbecue from Catasauqua’s Cathy’s Catering at only three bucks.

Brosky has been on the music scene in the Lehigh Valley since the 1980s. He is best known for a song he wrote in response to Billy Joel’s “Allentown” hit.

Brosky’s latest project is a musical play that traces the high and low cycles of his life.
