A funk, jam, disco-fanged multi-beast. Get it?

Churning out their self-described Creepfunk, a high energy, danceable variety of funk — one uniquely laced with electronic and improvisational sensibilities – STEEZ has garnered a loyal following throughout the Midwest performing at music festivals and to capacity crowds at rapidly growing venues. STEEZ repeatedly receives acclaim for their live performances, which typically include a seamless weaving of thoughtfully composed originals and crowd pleasing covers spanning from Madonna to clever obscurities like Genialistid (Estonia).

Well established in the Midwestern jamband community, what really sets STEEZ apart is the camaraderie and endearing sense of humor. The band’s humble beginnings include getting banned for life from a venue after their first ever live performance, maneuvering a moped accident involving a parked car, and cruising the Midwest in the inspired 35 foot band bus, “Big Brown.” (RIP) While it’s the original songs and taut musicianship that initially grab both fans’ and critics’ attention, the band’s personality keeps it.


The sick jams. Get a little taste of what we’re bringing to the table. As the site grows, we’ll be adding more.



The dope merch. We’re busy working on new merch that will be added to the site soon! Until then, check out our album offerings on the Steez store.



The sickest band of all time. We miss our fans dearly, and we can’t wait until we’re able to safely gather and play live shows for you again!

Our Mission

To blow your damn mind one sick jam at a time.

Categorization be damned, the Madison-based five piece, STEEZ, consisting of Matt Williams (keyboards/synthesizers/talk box), Steve Neary (guitar and vocals), Alex Roberts (drums), Chris Sell (bass), and Andrzej Benkowski (saxophone, keyboards, vocals) is — in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions — a funk band, a jamband, and a fusion band.

“Wow these guys are loud!”

“The CreepFunk moniker is about as accurate as you can get to describe the Steez. The sound is reminiscent of a funked out version of the soundtrack music for klobbing your friend’s ass in Goldeneye for Nintendo 64.”
