Steve Waddington is the #1 Multi-Tribute Entertainer working today! When it comes to Dean Martin, Neil Diamond, or Johnny Cash, no other performer even comes close! ROSE DIAMOND (Neil's mom) said "You sound just like my son!" DEAN MARTIN's daughter, Deana, exclaimed "We LOVE how you honor Dad's songs with such love and respect. You are a true tribute!" KRIS KRISTOFFERSON said "You sound so much like Johnny Cash, it's scary!" JOHNNY CASH's California relatives remarked "...excellent show! You sound more like Johnny Cash than J.R. did at times!" ('J.R.' was Johnny Cash's birth-name). Neil Diamond's horn section dropped in to one of Steve's show and said they'd "never heard anyone sound so much like Neil."
Simply put, he's the BEST IN THE BUSINESS! And he PROVES it 15-25 times per month!
A new segment of the show "JOHNNY RIVERS A Go-Go" has Steve paying tribute to the original "Secret Agent Man" and captures the feel of "Live at the Whiskey A Go Go".
Steve performed nine times on the JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE stage (see pics and videos) and he has decades of experience in casinos, night clubs. restaurants, festivals, private parties and corporate events, he's the top pick for show producers, event planners and agents alike. He also has his own unique show, "FROM RAT PACK to ROCK & ROLL", where he salutes "Dino, Diamond & Cash", as well as Sinatra, Darin, Elvis, Johnny Rivers, Chris Isaak, Dwight Yoakam, Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell, 50s, 60s, 70s 80's, etc...and his hilarious-yet-spot-on spoofs of Conway Twitty, Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, and much, much more!
With costume changes to represent the overall look of the artist/era he is covering, it is an amazing show! PLUS...he can adapt the show to incorporate as few, or as many, tributes as needed. With any size band (3-12 pcs), or singing to pre-recorded backing tracks, he can accommodate almost ANY budget and venue size. Anything from a quick 15 min show to a full 2 1/2 hour concert!!And, by the way, his backing band "The Retro-Rockin' All-Stars" is comprised of the BEST, seasoned, professional musicians in Southern California, many of whom still back the biggest names in the entertainment industry!
