AWARDS:
Twice honored as GIGMASTERS PERFORMER OF THE YEAR
also twice honored as BEST IN ONE MAN BAND CATAGORY

Have you ever wanted the “class & talent” of a live music performance and yet also wanted the high powered, dance atmosphere of a DJ at your event too? Well look no further, you can have the best of both worlds!

Stephen Curto is the number 1, One-Man Band performer on the Gigmasters site. With over 75 satisfied clients giving perfect 5-star ratings, it is easy to see that this versatile performer fits in every venue, from modest backyard parties, to complete Wedding/Reception event coordination, and high powered corporate events. Here is what Stephen has to say about himself

Hi!
! My name is Steve Curto and I am a Keyboard/Vocalist professionally performing since 1975 and have been playing piano since I was six years old. Currently I perform as a “One Man Band”, solo keyboard/vocalist, using only the very best, studio recorded, live musician, full band arrangements that I sing and play along to.

That means you hear the full sound of drums, bass, guitar, horns, strings, background vocals-whatever the original song had, I stay as true to the original sound as possible. (check out the audio examples on my profile page at

My influences are what I love to play, namely 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's Classic rock, Pop, R&B, Christian, Gospel, Contemporary, Jazz, Country, and Dance music, (in the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Steely Dan, Michael Buble, Boz Scaggs, America, Kenny Loggins, Stevie Wonder etc..) and can do a wide variety of engagements that include mellow, quiet dinner sets, to high energy and up tempo dance sets, and everything in between. I also perform as far back as music from the 1950's era, perfect for Anniversary engagements and the like.

I also take any and all requests, and always work within the atmosphere that YOU create. (peruse the "set-list" of over 160 songs on the profile page also...). I can as well, perform strictly instrumental "acoustic" piano music which is perfectly suited for a variety of engagements such as Anniversaries, Private Celebrations, Receptions, Seasonal or Corporate Events. For wedding events, I can handle every step of the music from Traditional or Contemporary music during the ceremony, through recorded or performed cocktail hour music, in addition to the entire wedding reception. During the reception I can handle all Master of Ceremony (MC) moments as well.

As a bonus, I play "DJ" in between my live sets, with a selection of over 10,000 songs in every style of music, to keep the entertainment going at the highest level.
I can move in and out of DJ mode and live performance mode for a unique and high powered performance. You can contact me prior to your event with a request list of styles you prefer, and I will either be performing it or playing it on the breaks, meaning you always get exactly the songs that you are looking forward to.

My equipment and PA and is absolutely state of the art, so what you hear is of extremely high fidelity and quality. I have recently added a laser/light show if requested. The best way to know about my performance is to take a look at the feedback I have received over the last 5 years, over 75 reviews, all 5 stars in every category.

For two years I have been awarded the “Rising Star” best in the One-Man Band category for all of North America, and also was honored with another award, “Best of 2012”.

Finally, I am a fun, personable, easy going guy, with TONS of experience, and absolutely love to play. Thanks for your consideration of me, and I really look forward to working with you, please don't hesitate to call as I am very flexible.

Steve

Honestly, no one could have done a better job. Steve adapted to every change, request and challenge with such ease and good humor. This was a very tough gig----from Bach to Salsa, live vocals to DJ----from 3 hours to 8. Thank heavens he knew what he was doing, because we most surely did not have a clue. He actually got us through this wedding, dinner and reception and made it look easy. THANK YOU, STEVE, FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Steve Curto was a fabulous one band at our wedding. He was thoroughly professional, accommodating, organized and had a beautiful voice. He seamlessly integrated his personal playing the keyboards-synthesizer and singing with our favorite CD selections. He was extraordinarily responsive to our,musical needs, even to rehearsing a piece he was not familiar with in order to accompany me while I played a special song to my new wife on the trumpet. I cannot praise him too highly because he was magnificent, much better than I ever expected. Anyone would be extremely lucky to have him perform at their function. He deserves to be at the top of your list.

Stephen Curto's talent is excellent. I would hire him again in a heart beat. Stephen is very professional and what I liked most about him was how accomodating he was from the first contact to the last. Rarely do you find talent and niceness in a person. Anyone who hires Stephen will not be disappointed in him or his talent. Thank you Stephen for making this event less painful for me. Those who did not make it missed a treat. If I ever do another, you are the man. God Bless! Luisa Productions
