About
Key Elegance features Steve Shoaf, a professional pianist/keyboardist who specializes in providing upscale music for elegant occasions. Steve has played throughout the Southeast US, covering wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, wedding receptions, dinners, corporate events, and private parties.

Beginning piano at the age of four, Steve trained classically at the North Carolina School of the Arts under the renowned Dr. Clifton Matthews. With over 25 years of performance experience, Steve is a seasoned professional, and can easily adapt to your unique entertainment needs. He excels in both traditional and contemporary wedding ceremonies, and can provide a pleasing and unobtrusive background ambiance for elegant dinners and fun cocktail hours.

Steve has an extensive song list, but with his ability to play by ear, he can easily address requests for new songs, whether they be recent hits, or a unique, jazzy take on pop classics or old standards. Steve's sensitivity to clients' desires, his trustworthiness and professionalism, and his ability to appeal to all ages put him in high demand.

Steve was the perfect musician to have for our wedding reception dinner. He did a great job of "reading the room" and playing appropriate music and was very kind to play our guests' song requests. Very professional and talented! Highly recommend!

ONE WORD- AMAZING!!! We had Steve play at the Graylyn Estate for our wedding reception and also during our cocktail hour. When the ceremony was over and we came in Steve had picked up right where the music left off!! It was brilliant and we got SO MANY compliments. I LOVED his selection of music, it was SO PERFECT!! It was kind of a last minute decision and I had some switch ups with Steve on the times but he was very flexible and accommodating and we couldn't of been happier with our choice. THANK YOU STEVE FOR THE INCREDIBLE MOOD-SET IN THE ENTIRE ROOM EVERYONE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT!!!

I hired Steve to accompany a vocalist for my wedding ceremony at the Charlotte City Club. Since the vocalist was a personal friend of mine traveling into Charlotte for the wedding, Steve was not able to rehearse with her until the day of the wedding. He was very responsive throughout the planning process, he was flexible and able to work around our schedule the day of the wedding to rehearse with her, he was skillful playing the music and able to improvise where needed, and his rates are very fair. The vocalist had excellent things to say about working with him and I agree. I would highly recommend booking Steve!
