The story of Liquid Blue is one of the most unique, compelling stories ever. The groups ascent from a ‘90s bar band to an international act selling out arenas is worthy of a full-length book (one is coming). Liquid Blue went from covers to originals and then returned to covers to eventually become one of the top party bands in the music industry. From the start the band has been guided by the leadership of Scott Stephens, whose life both inside and outside of Liquid Blue is every bit as fascinating as the group he created in 1996. The trio of Stephens, Nikki Green, and Michael Vangerov has been the heart and soul of Liquid Blue.
