Live Music by Twice As Good (2XG) blues band

Our band, Twice As Good, or their acronym 2XG, is the professional name of the music duo formed by Paul Anthony Steward and his father, Richard James Steward from the Elem Indian Colony of Pomo Indians. Richard grew up around music, having learned to play guitar and sing country music from his mom. Growing up he got to hear lots of different kinds of music on the radio, and he mostly admired the Blues & Soul. This was an admiration that he shared with his youngest son, Paul. After leaving the reservation, though still being involved with the tribe, Rich and Paul with a group of extended family experienced poverty in relocating to Santa Rosa, but music kept their spirits up. Richard taught Paul to play guitar, encouraging him to be a lead guitarist. Paul, inspired by B.B. King began to play the electric blues guitar and practiced his vocals. In May 2003 they debuted as "Twice As Good, 2XG" in Santa Rosa, CA. Since then they have been all over the USA, released seven albums, received stellar newspaper and magazines reviews and many awards. They continue on with Paul leading the band night after night with fiery tunes, soulful vocals, and a screaming guitar, as Rich lays down that driving rhythm.
