It's a rare thing to find a great singer who is also a consummate musician, but when he knows how to entertain too, it's a real find. And that's what you get with Steve.

"We've had Steve & Ben with their band regularly over the past two years and love them. Regulars and new people to the venue always have a wonderful time, the guys never cease to create a fantastic atmosphere whether playing the classics or their original brand of country"
