About
Steve Kenley is a singer/guitarist in the Washington DC area. He plays daily in Washington-area clubs and restaurants, and with the bands RSVP and The New Thirty. As a solo act, Steve sings and plays acoustic guitar and harmonica. He also performs reggae/island/summertime-type music (think Bob Marley, Zac Brown, Jimmy Buffet, etc.), using a computer to play drum machines and synthesizers, allowing him to sound like an entire band. He plays music from standards to the 60s to current hits -- from the Beatles, Badfinger and Wilson Pickett, to Hank Williams Jr., Dwight Yoakam and Jimmy Buffett, to the Stray Cats and Stevie Ray Vaughn, to Train, Green Day and the Kings of Leon. Or your favorite song. Just ask.

I hired Steve to play at a memorial service for my brother. It was a very difficult day for my family, and Steve was extremely professional, kind, and easy to work with. He even learned a new song that my brother liked as a special favor to us. I would definitely hire him again, and I highly recommend him.

We hired Steve for my husband’s 40th Jimmy Buffett/Margaritaville birthday party in our backyard. Steve was professional, accommodating, and very talented. He set a fun vibe for the party and has an infectious energy. He was exactly what we were looking for. We definitely recommend him!

Steve did a great job at my dad's 70th birthday. It was a low-key event but the music definitely stepped it up a few notches and guests really enjoyed. Would recommend!

We hired Steve to perform at my Mom's 75th birthday party. It was meant to be an outside event, but it rained all day. Steve was *amazing*. Not only is he incredibly talented - the music was gorgeous - but he made the sudden change of venue (i.e. suddenly we're all stuck in the living room) absolutely no problem. He was charming, kind and flexible with our wacky family members. I would recommend him to anyone. Everyone in the family - from ages 3 to 75 - enjoyed his music thoroughly.

We planned a staff party on short notice and Steve was able to accommodate us. Steve came early and was a pleasure to work with. Our guests really enjoyed Steve, his music, and his music selections were perfect! I would absolutely work with Steve again and refer friends to him as well. GREAT JOB!
