The background music is a Joe Hopkins original "Trust Me I Lied"
Music tracks are Smoke by Thousand Horses and I say Amen (another Joe Hopkins original)
Steel and Dirt (Joe Hopkins and Mark Hills) is the result of many years of accumulated music experience. And these years of musical adventures have added up to a blend of styles with something for everyone. Sometimes two acoustic guitars – sometimes an acoustic and an electric -- S/D presents music genres Folk through Blues while visiting originals by Joe, Classic and Contemporary Rock with definite influences of Jazz and Soul. From Stormy Weather to Wagon Wheel to Ring of Fire and Summer of ‘69. This diversity makes them an exceptional choice to represent KC’s deep roots in music. Both of these seasoned players/entertainers are long time Kansas City musicians and still performing in other bands. The show includes crowd interaction and even possible sing along moments (as determined by audience skill level – some crowds shouldn’t sing ß- JUST KIDDING!). Importantly, the heart of the show is more than just music. The goal is entertaining the available audience – and that’s what they’ll do. When Mark was little (he was young then) his goal was to play his little guitar on the school bus and have his friends all sing along --- a lifetime goal yet unachieved ! (the driver broke his little guitar into pieces)…But , there’s still hope for “little Mark” – and it lies in your hands.
