“Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah / some call me the gangster of love.”
Chances are, even if you’ve never heard of the Steve Miller Band, you are at least familiar with the above lines, which are the iconic opening to the San Fran outfit’s most familiar song, “The Joker.”
But the Steve Miller Band had an impressive and successful run of hits, mostly in the 1970s, including “Fly Like an Eagle” and “Jungle Love.”
Clearly, the band has not been relegated to dinosaur or one-hit wonder status: the group’s set at Artpark tonight sold out days in advance.
Opening the show, fittingly enough, is the local R&B/soul group Miller and Other Sinners.
The show begins at 6:30pm, with doors opening at 4:45pm.
Artwork is located in Lewiston, just off Route 104.
