Steve Katz, a founding member of the rock group Blood, Sweat & Tears, will perform a one-man show at the Pequot Library on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The band's hit songs included "You've Made Me So Very Happy," "Sometimes in Winter," "And When I Die?" and their Blood, Sweat & Tears album sold six million copies in 1969. The group won three Grammies, was voted best band by the Playboy Jazz and Pop Poll two years in a row, and won three major Downbeat awards.

Katz wrote many songs during his tenure with Blood, Sweat &Tears, including "Sometimes in Winter." Katz was also a member of the Blues Project.

In his one-man show, Katz performs songs from his career with Blood, Sweat & Tears and the Blues Project and beyond, including an exploration of his folk roots through acoustic renditions of his classic songs. In his show, he also entertains the audience with first-hand narratives from his career in the music industry.
