He has done cocktail hour and dinner music for many of my wedding clients and does a great job working with them on their needs and music requests. A true testament to Steve is when we have clients that come back after their first daughter's wedding and hire him again for the 2nd daughters wedding. I highly recommend Steve Banks to add that touch of class to your wedding or event!"

"My husband and I were honored to have Steve Banks play at our wedding on the 8th of July, 2016. He did an incredible job and his music was wonderful, especially his arrangement of musical notes for my arrival song. Our guests enjoyed his music thoroughly, and we received many compliments about his music talents. Not only was he superb to work with, he also was extremely professional and had great equipment. He had a large collection of songs to choose from, which we enjoyed going though. We would highly recommend Steve to anyone!"
