Steve Johnson is a veteran performer who has been cultivating his unique presence and skill set for over 20 years. He defines versatility with his ability to cover literally any song. People try to stump him and it’s not easy! He is known for being able to figure out songs he doesn’t even know on the spot and play just enough to satisfy the requester. His performance song list is practically unlimited from an acoustic standpoint. From Motown to Disco, Reggae to Blues, Top 40 to Country, to soulful R&B love songs, he does it all and he does it really well. As a live guitarist/performer, he is most frequently available as a Solo, Duo, Trio.
What makes Steve even more of a force is that he is also a seasoned MC. Wedding clients typically hire him to play acoustic and sing at their Ceremony and Cocktail Hour, and then MC their reception with a DJ. Steve’s upbeat personality and infectious positivity never cease to win an audience over. A consummate and polished professional in every sense, you simply cannot go wrong with this man at the helm of your event’s entertainment scenario.
Often times, we have a client that really wants a great acoustic band, but just can’t afford what we need to charge. In that situation, we always pitch Steve because he is so versatile and capable that just him SOLO is more energetic and fun than most 3-4 person bands are. He becomes the party, talking and joking with the audience from the stage, always fully present and aware of his primary responsibility, which is to cater positive energy and the appropriate music for the moment, using his cultivated skills as an Entertainer.
Steve has performed as the guitarist in many bands in his day, including the legendary New Jersey cover band, Brian Kirk and the Jirks. Whether it’s rocking a club gig, playing a few sets at an intimate engagement party, MCing a Corporate event, or employing all of his skills simultaneously as a Wedding Singer, MC, and Ceremony/Cockail Hour performer, here is man firing on all cyldiners. In demand all throughout New Jersey and the New York Metro Area, Steve is grateful to make a nice living doing what he loves to do most.
