The show was directed by the great Steve Binder.
With an aim to make his mark in the psychedelic music scene, Miller quit the band and moved to San Francisco. There he came up with the Steve Miller Blue Band. In 1967, the band signed a deal with Capitol Records and after that they shortened their name to the Steve Miller Band. They band consisted of Miller and guitarist James Coke along with drummer Tim Davis and bassist Lonnie Turner.

The band added Boz Scaggs as the guitarist just before their scheduled performance in June at the Monterey Pop Festival. The band recorded its first album ‘Children of the Future’ in May 1968 while touring England. The album on the whole wasn’t a huge success but some of its tracks like the funky blues ‘Steppin Stone’ and acoustic toned ‘Baby’s Calling Me Home’ received quite a lot of attention. The ballad ‘Key To The Highway’ was appreciated by many blues fans.
