Fully Sequenced Guitar Vocalist.
Steve has been an active entertainer in South Australia for more than forty years, starting back in 1971 as a drummer.
In the early 80’s he became a guitarist and fronted one of Adelaide’s most popular tribute bands The Beatmakers, with their impersonation style tribute to The Beatles, the British and American 60’s.
In the 90’s Steve embarked on a career as a Disc Jockey and MC working in many of Adelaide’s top night clubs as well as private functions. During this period Steve also found time to perform as a solo guitarist, just to keep his hand in with live gigs. By 1998 Steve formed a musical duo with a former band member from The Beatmakers, naming the duo after John Lennon’s final album Double Fantasy.
Now Steve is very proud to be performing as a fully sequenced solo guitarist/vocalist. Adapting all his skills and experience with a great mix of music to ensure an enjoyable show for all.
