Steven Forrest Sanders
Forrest has been a mainstay of the Northeast Ohio music scene since the 60’s when he, with brothers Russ and Larry, were “The Lime,” an Akron based band with national releases “Love A Go Go” on the legendary Chess Records label and “Beautiful Day” on the Paramount/Dot label. Steve also recorded with Seattle based band The Clique which had the two million selling single, “Sugar on Sunday” in the 70’s. After returning home he was featured in both “The Jim Ballard Band” as well as regional favorite “77 South and the Interstate Horns.” He was also a founding member of CSNY tribute band “Ohio,” that entertained audiences in the top venues in the region for the last 15 years.
You might remember Ron from any of the thousands of live performances and dozens of record releases with many of your favorite regional acts including The Buckeye Biscuit Band, Ital Reggae Band, First Light, Alex Bevan, Pat Dailey, and Macaw to name but a few. He has been making music with Forrest, Scott, and Bob in both so many live performances and countless recording sessions since the early 70’s.
