"Steam Boars Show Preview"

Jam-rock band the Steam Boars is playing The Boro Bar and Grill. The band has become frequenters of The Boro, and after hearing their music, it is no wonder why. Steam Boars was formed by guitarist and lead vocalist Terry Luther as he pursued a music performance degree from Berklee College of Music.

Luther was later joined by bassist Jeremy Saltz and drummer Michael Moore. Each member of Steam Boars sings at least one solo at every live performance. Steam Boars music is a blend of genres, primarily bouncing between funk and southern rock. Perfect for a Saturday night bar setting, the band’s lyrics talk of good times and free living.

Their song “Puffin’” is about the band’s love of smoking something a little stronger than tobacco. Outlandish as the lyrics may be, it’s impossible to not enjoy their music. Definitely go to this show. - MTSU Sidelines

"The Steam Boars, Live at The Boro"

The Steam Boars laid a groove down at The Boro Bar & Grill on Oct. 20 reminiscent of bands such as Dispatch, Phish and Grateful Dead.

The trio is led by Terry Luther who trained at Berklee College of Music. Terry started the set with vamping guitar riffs and vocals that progressed to jazz influenced guitar solos and then all out jamming from the three members.

They showcased original songs from their own repertoire and intermingled covers of The Talking Heads, Grateful Dead and Red Hot Chili Peppers throughout the show that brought the audience jamming alongside The Steam Boars.

A solid rhythm section accompanied the lead guitarist with Jeremy Saltz on the six-string bass guitar and Michael Moore on the drum set, each taking solos throughout the set. Impressively, each member of the band took turns at lead vocals.

The Steam Boars are set to perform in Chattanooga, Knoxville and Chicago in the month of November. Like the band on Facebook here - The Murfreesboro Pulse


Still working on that hot first release.



Steam Boars were formed by guitarist/vocalist Terry Luther at the University of Iowa, where he studied music intensely along side his main studies in Psychology. Terry then followed his passion for music and pursued his Music Performance degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

After graduation, Terry moved to Nashville and started Steam Boars again. Steam Boars have released two full length albums, "Steam Boars" and "Welcome", and on July 17, 2012 released their latest EP "Safe Word".

The Steam Boars lineup found on "Safe Word" includes Terry Luther on guitar and vocals, Alaskan native Jeremy "Salty" Saltz on bass and vocals, and Chattanooga native Michael "Showtime" Moore on drums and vocals.

In March of 2015 "Chill" Bill Baker joined the Steam Boars on bass, and the band is preparing for a spring and summer tour.
