Step Aside (Blues Band)

Portrait of Step Aside (Blues Band)

Review by Juan Sifuentes V.P of Tejano Roots Hall Of Fam

Marty and I thought it was time to head down stairs and listen to some Tejano talent. We got to the first floor and I heard something that really stirs my blood and soul……..The Blues! There was a 3 piece band playing the blues. The name of the band was ‘Step Aside’. These guys knew how to play. The guitarist was wailing away ripping that guitar. He was doing a lot of good, solid, clean licks. They were playing unplugged so to speak. The bass player was really walking that bass. I noticed that the drummer was only using the snare and high-hat. I thought that was odd but he was really good. All three artists made a solid, heartfelt sound with the blues. I have always believed that a person cannot learn how to play the blues. I strongly believe that it has to be in your blood, heart, and soul. These guys definitely had it. Clarence Castillo (guitar/vocals), Luis Garza (bass), and Paul Allen (drums)…..Step Aside….Check them out!!

Juan belongs to the Board-of-Directors for Tejano R.O.O.T.S, the Official Hall Of Fame for Tejano Music since 1999. He is also a second generation Tejano singer. He currently sings with Tonka Y Libre and Ted López Y El Conjunto Recuerdos. Juan enjoys writing and doing reviews of Tejano shows and events

What could be better than Blues and Bikes on a Sunday afternoon?

I saw that Step Aside was playing at Caliente Harley-Davidson so I thought I would check it out.

I have seen them advertised on SA Rocks before but never got a chance to see them until now. I've had the honor of jamming with Clarence Castillo (lead vocals & lead guitar) so I thought it would be cool to see them with the new bass player, Louis Garza and Paul Allen, the new drummer.

When I got there the boys were already in full swing jamming some gritty Texas blues bringing back memories of old blues greats like Jimmy Reed and Freddy King. The boys were on today as they wrapped up the first set and came and talked to the people in the crowd.

If you have never been to Caliente Harley-Davidson it's a great venue to see bands and it seems to really suit Step Aside as they had people mesmerized with their down home Texas blues.

Some of the highlights of the show were “Rock Hand”, “Monday Morning Blues” and for a moment I could've sworn Albert King was in the building!

A great time was had by all; free pizza, cheap soda, nice bikes and plenty of hot Blues from a great bunch of guys

Check out Step Aside on their MySpace page to see their upcoming gigs.
