Over 75 perfect "5-Star Reviews"
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 #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...
My name is Steve Curto and I am a Keyboard/Vocalist/Pianist/DJ, professionally performing since 1975. 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. (if your not already reading this on the site, check out the audio and video examples on my profile page at http://*******.***
My influences are what I love to play, namely 60's, 70's, 80's Classic rock, Pop, R&B, Oldies, Jazz, Country, and Dance music, (in the likes of James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Beatles, The Who, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Train, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Boz Scaggs, America, Kenny Loggins etc.. ) This makes my show a perfect fit for a wide variety of engagements from easy listening dinner sets to high energy rock, up tempo dance sets, and everything in between. I can even blast into the past with music from the 1950's & 60's eras, perfect for Anniversary engagements and the like.
I can also move in and out of “DJ mode” from my live performances for a unique and energetic performance. So you can start the night out with cool classic rock, and then I can move into spinning the most contemporary and current radio and spotify tracks which always fills the dance floor. I accommodate all requests and even have an auxiliary cable so anyone with songs on their phone can hear that special song. You can also contact me prior to your event with a request list of styles and/or specific songs you want, and if I am not perfectly suited to do a one man band arrangement, I can still include it on the breaks, meaning you always get exactly the songs that you are looking forward to.
I always work within the atmosphere that YOU want to create. (take a look at my set-list of over 160 songs). I can perform strictly instrumental "acoustic" piano music for more traditional events (i.e. Anniversaries, Private Celebrations, Receptions, Seasonal or Corporate Events...) and for weddings, I can handle every step of the music from the ceremony (recorded or performed, classic or contemporary) through the cocktail/picture hour time, and the dinner/reception, as well as handling all the Master of Ceremony Duties or working along side your MC. 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.
My equipment and PA is absolutely state of the art, so what you hear is extremely high quality. (I usually play in stereo for killer sound) Lighting, fog, etc can always be added on request. The best way to know about my performance is to take a look at the feedback I have received over the last 7 years, over 75 reviews, all perfect “5 star” reviews, and see video and hear sample audio of my songs.
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.
