WeddingReviewed on April 8, 2024From Alexandria, VA

I can’t say enough about how wonderful Steve is! He performed at our wedding ceremony and reception. Steve is very talented, attentive to our questions and song requests, and just an overall kind person. We received multiple compliments throughout the evening regarding his talent! We’re so thankful we found Steve and would highly recommend him for any event!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 23, 2023From Haymarket, VA

Steve Kenley was a guitarist/singer at my son’s wedding. We held it at an Airbnb, and it was a small affair. Steve was definitely the icing on the cake and made our day so much more special. He played music from a variety of genres that appealed to all ages. From instrumental background music to singing and playing everything…. it was perfect! He arrived early and required very little assistance in order to set up. He also was very accommodating when it came to relocating for the ceremony. I highly recommend Steve Kenley as an amazing asset to any celebration!

CelebrationReviewed on May 16, 2023From Leesburg, VA

Steve was awesome! He reached out right after booking asking if there were any special requests. He arrived early, was plesant to work with, and read the "mood" of the room. Played great songs, has an awesome voice, and a joy to work with. I highly recommend Steve for any party!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on March 10, 2023From Washington, DC

Steve is fabulous! We had a corporate event in our office and he provided just the right type of background music. He was on time and professional, which is often hard to find when hiring vendors for events.

Steve was perfect for our Staff Appreciation Luau. He wasn't too loud for the space, so the music set the tone for the event. He played the Limbo song (for a really long time) while the team had lots of fun playing limbo and overall he was great. Highly recommend him!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 21, 2021From Leesburg, VA

Steve was so easy to work with and provided an extensive list of songs to choose from. He tailored his music to our event - and everyone enjoyed his talents. Steve even helped to contribute to our charity drive for homeless kids. We will absolutely be booking him again in the future.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 7, 2021From Lovettsville, VA

Steve was terrific. We had a last minute change of plans that resulted in Steve having to set up in two areas, one for our daughter's wedding ceremony and one for the cocktail hour. Steve handled it well without complaints. His music was wonderful and he really contributed to a perfect night for the wedding. We would definitely recommend Steve to anyone looking for a professional musician who provides a wide range of musical genres. He is a talented singer and guitar player. He also played ukulele for our ceremony and it was perfect. Thanks Steve, you were awesome!

Memorial ServiceReviewed on October 1, 2019From Towson, MD

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!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 11, 2019From Purcellville, VA

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!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 6, 2019From Silver Spring, MD

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.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 15, 2017From Columbia, MD

Steve was absolutely fantastic! He was very professional and accommodating to our special requests before the event and played beautifully during the ceremony. We, unfortunately, didn't have time to speak with him on the day of the event, but were very impressed with his performance and were very thankful for his work. He made the event very special. Thanks Steve!
