Q: Is being a performing musician, Steven’s full time job?
A: Yes, since 1991 Steven has been performing, recording, producing and teaching music (full time) across the United States. Steven performs both solo concerts and high-energy shows with his talented band the Suitcase Musicians. Steven performed his 5,000th show on April 9, 2011.
Q: How much will it cost to have Steven perform for our event?
A: Fee structures are determined by the location of the event and the number of performances needed. The more performances that are grouped together, the more cost effective it is. Even different schools, within the same district, can work together to achieve the best possible rate.
Q: Our school (K-5th) normally books two assemblies for our student body to accommodate the AM and PM kindergarten. Can Steven perform two shows on the same day?
A: Absolutely and the concert rate for the second show will reflect a significant discount. There are many different combinations that work well so that all grades are included.
Q: How long is Steven’s presentation?
A: Steven can be flexible to your needs but the preferred length is about 50 minutes for a school assembly and 60 to 75 minutes for a feature concert.
Q: I’ve heard that Steven performs in churches too. How does that work?
A: Steven’s school assemblies and general public concerts, do not contain a religious message.
But, he does perform family concert events for churches. They are two different shows for two separate audiences.
Q: What should I do next, if I’d like to book an event with Steven or Steven + The Suitcase Musicians!?
A: Fill out the contact form on his website and provide the basic information about your event. Within about 48 hours you will receive pricing and availability about your inquiry.
Q: Does Steven and his band perform for private events … say a birthday party?
Sometimes. Last year Steven was able to perform for a handful of private events that were booked around openings in his schedule. But school assemblies, libraries, churches and larger public events are put on his calendar first.
