The Burnsville Band is a Blues/Rock band based in Vail Valley, CO. They have earned a powerful reputation
for keeping Blues music alive and growing in the Rocky Mountains.
Burns launched The Burnsville Blues Band in San Diego, CA in 2006, built a loyal following, and played extensively throughout
Southern California while holding a residency at the House of Blues from 2008 to 2012. The band released its debut album,
"Give Me A Job", in 2010 to ecstatic reviews, and a nomination for "Best Blues Album" by the San Diego Music Awards.
Burns relocated to Colorado in 2014, rebuilt the band, and quickly established a new audience. Burns and his core group are currently
writing new material, and are continuing to build upon their fan base around the Vail area. A new release is in the works.
As an artist, Burns is influenced by icons like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, BB King, Alvin Lee, and Billy Gibbons, but uses
his finely-honed creative instincts to remain his own man at all times.

Steve Burns--"These new songs came to me when there was so much uncertainty in my life, but they remained unfinished for years.
However, during the Corona Virus scare, I dug through my archives of lyrics and found them again.
I had the extra time to get creative, and finally finished some of these songs.
I was inspired by the current situation and intended for the take-away message to be "Our Time Ain't Long". Our time can be up at any given moment. We don't know when.
So, acknowledge your insecurity, fear, anger, and resentment. Act positively and let it all go. Live in the moment. Find love, gratitude, and forgiveness for others and yourself.
