Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 15, 2018From Winston Salem, NC

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!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 30, 2017From Winston Salem, NC

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!!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on August 6, 2016From Charlotte, NC

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!

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!

WeddingReviewed on December 27, 2014From Charlotte, NC

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.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 24, 2010From Gold Hill, NC

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

Anniversary PartyReviewed on March 19, 2011From Asheville, NC

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!

Community EventReviewed on September 23, 2011From Monroe, NC

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!!!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on January 1, 2011From Asheville, NC

Words can't describe the talent of Steve Shoaf! We very were honored to have him play at our wedding reception in Asheville. He was more than accommodating when it came to traveling to our venue and taking into account our special requests. He set the perfect mood for dinner and also for dancing that followed. I would recommend Steve Shoaf if you want a wonderful musician!!

WeddingReviewed on October 17, 2009From Raleigh, NC

Steve Shoaf saved our wedding! The pianist we had hired a year before the wedding was unable to play and gave us very little notice. Steve was kind enough to step in just a few weeks prior to our date...he knew all the ceremony music even though they were not "traditional" songs. He played thru our cocktail hour as well as dinner and everyone commented on how wonderful his playing was. His music set a wonderfully romantic, elegant background for our affair. We will certainly recommend him to others! Many Thanks, Jason and Kristin Neal

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 17, 2012From Cornelius, NC

Steve was a key part in making our wedding day truly complete. His talent, professionalism, and flexibility was incredible. His huge variety of music made it very easy to select songs for our wedding and cocktail hour. His quick responses with emails and familiarity with The Peninsula Yacht Club eased my mind during the planning phases. Steve added an element of class and talent that helped to set the tone for our perfect wedding day. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone who needs a professional, experienced, talented pianist at their event!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 21, 2009From Winston Salem, NC

Steve was extremely accomodating to every request. He was very pleasant, professional and very talented. His performance added that "special touch" to a night that was very special for all who attended. I appreciate the ease of working with him and through Gigmasters. If the needed arises for a musical performer and/or the Gigmaster services, I will be sure to start my search at Thanks again! Nicole Hernandez

Steve was just the person we were looking for to perform at our event. In the past for this function at our Annual Meeting we have hired a band. Steve's talents added the finishing touch to this year's event.
