In the late 60′s, the band Steppenwolf became famous for such hits as “Born To Be Wild” and “Magic Carpet Ride“. The band’s original line-up went different ways in the mid 1970′s and many went on using the name Steppenwolf. John Kay went on to tour as “John Kay and Steppenwolf” in 1981 and because of legal issues, nobody has ever toured as “Steppenwolf.” During the band’s existence, it went through several guitarists, bassists and keyboardists. Some of the members went on to other projects and still perform.

In 2005, Goldy McJohn, the original keyboard player in Steppenwolf who played on all of the hit songs and albums recorded by Steppenwolf and Glen Bui joined together to peform the music of Steppenwolf. In the beginning, the band was called “The Steppenwolf Experience” and “Goldy McJohn and Friendz.” The band, during 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, went through various members, including Steppenwolf guitarist Kent Henry, drummers from Sugarloaf (Lloyd Poole) In late 2009, Glen Bui placed a call to John Kay who at the time owned Steppenwolf Productions to ask him for help obtaining credibility for the band, John agreed to issue a license for the band from March 2010 to March 2013 to allow it to perform under the trademark-owned name, Steppenwolf Productions. The band toured performing in Casino’s, Fairs, Arenas, Amphitheaters and Festivals, Corporate Conventions, Private Parties, Benefits and other events. The band’s primary focus is on performing a set of Steppenwolf’s Greatest Hits, giving the audience the very same intensity as the original line-up of Steppenwolf did in its peak of existence in the late 60′s, early 70′s and for those who can’t see John Kay and Steppenwolf perform, this is the only other band out there keeping the legend of Steppenwolf alive.. Now the band is operating independently, playing Steppenwolf’s greatest hits and touring internationally…. The band also performs for benefits and has raised over 2.3 million dollars performing benefit concerts since 2008 for Disabled Children and Adults, The Boys n Girls Clubs, American Cancer Society, Veterans, Children’s Hospital and many other organizations.
