Here is what Stephen has to say about himself.
Hello! 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.
