I am Deb Corisis, manager of Ribbons and Strings Ensembles, a fellow gigmasters performer. I hired Steve to perform with our regular string quartet because the bride wanted a guitarist in addition to the quartet. I am VERY GLAD that I chose Steve. His musicianship is excellent. There are run of the mill guitar players and there are true musicians. Steve is an excellent musician who plays the guitar and plays it well. He plays a huge variety of styles and is very professional. He was prepared and able to handle changes in keys/songs etc. well. Everyone one at Ribbons and Strings is hoping to perform with Steve again. THANKS STEVE.
Birthday Party (Adult)
Steve Shurack's versatile and exceptionally professional music added such a marvelous touch to our evening! Our guests were so pleased with his excellent music that set a very elegant mood. He played both electric and acoustic guitars in all styles including jazz, latin, rock, folk and flamenco. The birthday party was so much more complete with Steve's live music accompaniment. We adore Steve and would love to have him play at future events!
Steve was absolutely perfect for our affair. His musicianship was just wonderful. He played exactly the right kind of music to make our celebration truly a joyous event for everyone present. I can't recommend him highly enough.You absolutely won't be disappointed if you hire him. If I ever have the opportunity to hire a musician for a party again I will make sure Steve is available before I set the date for my event. If you don't believe me go hear him play on Sunday morning brunch at Suerte on South Pearl street. Even if you do believe me go hear him play I plan on doing so.
Steve recently played our small intimate wedding at Sapphire Point Overlook in Dillon, CO. He did a fantastic job! He was available to discuss song selection beforehand and was willing to learn a special request song for the occasion. Steve is extremely experienced and had played at our wedding site before, so he was able to give me an idea of how to plan for the timing of the ceremony - which was so helpful. Finally, he plays beautifully! His sound was perfect for our special day. I would definitely book Steve in the future!
Steve played for our wedding and we received so many compliments! He is exceptionally talented but was also very accommodating to our requests. I wanted two very specific songs played for our ceremony, one on the ukulele and one on the guitar and Steve had no problem learning and bringing both instruments to the venue. On top of everything, you'll never see him not smiling. He has the most pleasant demeanor and made our wedding that much more enjoyable. Thank you, Steve!

Hi Rachel, Thanks for the positive review on Gigmasters, it does help! I enjoyed playing music for your ceremony, hope too see you at a future event! Best, Steve
Steve was Fantastic! He played exactly the right music and offered a broad selection of favorites. I highly recommend him.
Steve Shurack’s Response:
Robert, Thanks for the feedback! Let me know when you're in town and want some music for another fun time! Best, Steve
I can't speak highly enough of Steve and the experience we had with him. We hired Steve to play music for our wedding ceremony. He blew us away with his talent and overall performance. He was very responsive and great to work with leading up to our wedding day. We received so many comments from our guests about how wonderful Steve's performance was. He truly helped make our wedding the most special day of our lives. We will definitely be using Steve again next team we need music for an event. Well done Steve!
All the reviews here pretty much sum it up: Gifted and skillful guitarist, superb musicianship, huge repertoire, absolute professionalism, and ultimately--Steve is a great guy. If he's available for your date and sends a quote-- book him. It's that simple. My wife and I booked Steve for a big get-together before our wedding in July, and all of our guests were amazed. That in itself is a big compliment, because about a third of our guests are musicians, and the rest are great music fans. Having Steve perform made the evening, and the rest of the weekend of our wedding much more memorable and awesome. Seriously-- Steve really is a virtuoso. Hire him. Thanks Steve!
Steve played at our wedding in July 2018. He was PERFECT! He played during the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner. As requested, he played a lot of bossa nova beautifully, as well as classic rock songs. I gave him a list of songs and the style I envisioned (if slower or more upbeat). He didn't miss a beat! He was also very accommodating in providing us equipment for our outdoor ceremony. He was very professional from the moment I contacted him at Gigmasters all the way through the entire delivery of his services. His aura and demeanor is also so peaceful! I highly recommend Steve!
Our Christmas party was loads of fun and Steve’s guitar music was fabulous!
Steve was a fantastic addition to our Cinco de Mayo block party. Everyone loved the music he played and it was perfect for our event. Steve was professional throughout the entire process which eased our concerns as we had a lot on our plate. He arrived early to set up, was easy to deal with, and interacted well with our guests. If we ever need some music again, Steve will be first to be called.
Steve was amazing! We had planned our wedding at Sapphire point from out of state! I was so worried about everything coming together, as I have never met any of our vendors including Steve! The music was perfect, everyone could hear it and everyone talked about it throughout the night. It made our day so special. Thank you so much! We highly recommend!
Steve Shurack’s Response:
Hi Kristin, thanks for the review. I’m glad you and your family and friends enjoyed the music! I’m happy the weather cooperated, it was special when the sun came out at the end of your ceremony! Cheers, Steve
I would absolutely hire Steve Shurack again to play at our wedding or any special event!! He was fantastic!! A few of our guests that are musicians themselves were commenting how impressed they were with his talent! He played electric and acoustic guitar for our ceremony. A true professional!! Thanks again Steve!!!
Steve played for our early morning wedding in the mountains, and his music and personality fit the day perfectly. We were looking for a mix of light-hearted, happy and romantic pop standards to set the mood and that's just what Steve provided. Steve even learned a new song for us and his version sounded great! Besides his music, we also enjoyed his happy, easy-going demeanor (our guests commented on how he was smiling throughout the ceremony) which fit the day just right.
Steve was great! Friendly and professional, and we enjoyed him playing at our holiday party so much! He played a range of music including Spanish guitar, electric, and even some Christmas music. Our guests danced and had a great time. We will definitely have him back for another event.
