Wedding Cocktail Hour
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!
Steve was amazing. Everyone at the party loved his playing. I will definitely book him again.
It was a pleasure working with Steve. Everyone enjoyed the music. He was there on time and was very professional.
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!
Birthday Party (Adult)
We had a small Birthday party for my 90 year old husband and we all enjoyed the music that Steve Shoaf played.Steve added to the event in a positive way. Would invite him to another event. Barbara
What a nice touch Steve added to our son's rehearsal dinner! Awesome talent and very easy to work with. He was punctual, professional, and our guests loved hearing him play the piano during our cocktail hour and dinner. I could not have been more pleased and would not hesitate to book Steve again for another event. Highly recommend!
Steve did an excellent job! I would recommend his service.
We were extremely pleased with Steve's performance at our daughter's wedding at Gold Hill. We highly recommend him!
Steve was outstanding and I am so happy we selected him for our wedding. He delivered exactly what we were looking for with very little direction. The night wouldn’t have been the same if he wasn’t there playing. He added so much enjoyment to the evening.
Steve is extremely talented and easy to work with.
Steve's talent and presence at our wedding made it even more spectacular than we could have ever imagined! He was accommodating with the selections, communicated clearly with us as we planned in the months prior to the event, and made such a perfect addition to our ceremony and reception. I cannot tell you how many of our guest commented on Steve's performance and how unbelievably talented he was. Thank you, Steve, for not only your contribution musically, but also your kindness and flexibility! We HIGHYLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Steve Shoaf for any event you may be considering! With warmest regards, Erin and Rick Harbaugh
Steve added so much value to our party. He played for 2 hours at my parents anniversary party, and was very happy to add in "special songs" that were meaningful to my parents. Two things that made Steve stand out - he added his professional experience to help me craft the "perfect evening" for my parents, and that helped a lot. In addition, he took requests and went so far as to look up a song on his iphone so he could hear it, then play it for us. And he was flawless! Excellent vendor, and I'd hire him again in a heartbeat!
Steve was phenomenal - particularly given that there was a mix-up in dates and was still able to perform at our business event. Additionally, he went out of his way to make sure he arrived on time at a venue that was a fair distance away. His performance was wonderful, fitting in perfectly with the ambiance our organization wanted to capture for a gathering of local business leaders. Our guests truly enjoyed his music and many compliments were paid to him as to how beautifully he played. I would not hesitate in the slightest to hire Steve again - extremely professional, prompt in contact regarding the event and a wonderful pianist!!!!
