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
My name is Steve Curto and I am a Keyboard/Vocalist/DJ professionally performing since 1975 (piano since I was six). Currently I perform as a “One Man Band”, solo keyboard/vocalist & DJ, 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 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 Steely Dan, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Elton John, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Train, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Boz Scaggs etc .. ) I am a perfect fit for a wide variety of engagements from mellow dinner sets, to high energy rock and up tempo dance sets, and everything in between. I can even dip back into music from the 1950's era, perfect for Anniversary engagements and the like.
I can move in and out of “DJ mode” and live performance mode for a unique and high powered performance. So you can start the night out with cool classic rock, and then I can move into spinning current radio tracks with an available aux cable that lets anyone walk up with their phones for requests. You can also contact me prior to your event with a list of styles and/or specific songs you want, and I will either be performing it live or playing it on the breaks, meaning you always get exactly the songs that you are looking forward to.
I also take any and all requests, and always work within the atmosphere that YOU create. (take a look at my set-list of over 160 songs). I can perform strictly instrumental "acoustic" piano music which is for events like Anniversaries, Private Celebrations, Receptions, Seasonal or even Corporate Events. For weddings I can handle every step of the music from the ceremony(recorded or performed, classic or contemporary) through cocktail hour music, and the entire wedding reception, 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. For concert size venues I bring an 18” sub and 9600 watt PA. For normal size show (25-200 guests I have a state of the art QSC system. (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 5 years, over 75 reviews, all perfect “5 star” reviews, and see video and hear sample audio of my songs.
Twice 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.
