Singer New Yorkers who loved the Big Band sound could find Steve at the Rainbow Room where he performed 6 or 7 nights a week for 3 years, at the world famous night club on the 65th floor of the NBC (now GE) building in Rockefeller Center. The band was so popular, they even broadcast a live TV special honoring Mary Martin of Peter Pan fame. Also on the show with Steve were Michael Feinstein and Nancy Wilson. Some of the musicians Steve has had the distinct pleasure of working with over the years include Michael Becker, Steve Kuhn, Cameron Brown, Dave Finke, Billy Drummond just to name a few. Tony Bennett, paying Steve the ultimate compliment after catching the show late one night at the Rainbow, said to him…”keep singing kid…we need younger guys like you in the business… we need singers that can really sing the great standards”
