About
Hello there!

Please let me tell you a bit about myself...
I started piano at the age of 6, have toured, recorded and played professionally for over 35 years, and now perform solo for a variety of engagements, including Corporate Events, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Weddings/Receptions and just about any occasion that benefits from live music.

My show is quite unique, as a Keyboard/Pianist/Vocalist “One-Man Band” I strive to faithfully reproduce and sound like the original artists that I cover, in the styles of James Taylor, Billy Joel, Elton John, The Beatles, The Who, Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Train, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, etc.. the list goes on, so for a really comprehensive look, please check out the Set List section of my Gigmasters profile. I always work within the atmosphere that YOU want to create, accommodating all requests, even prepared with an aux cable for guests to bring their songs to me.

In addition I can at any moment transform into “DJ Mode” for the most high powered, dance oriented, request based entertainment to cover every genre and style of music desired. This unique combination has allowed me to handle every bit of music during weddings from the ceremony, through the cocktail hour, to the reception dinner and dancing, while playing the role of Master of Ceremonies as well. We can coordinate all specialty music moments well before the event, so that you know you are going to get exactly what you want. It makes for a really cool transition from live entertainment to DJ even at a backyard party. With absolutely state of the art audio and lighting equipment I strive to make your event remarkable and memorable.

Finally, I am a fun, personable, easy going guy, with TONS of experience, and absolutely love to play. Thanks for your consideration of me, and I really look forward to working with you, please don't hesitate to call with any questions, as I am very flexible.

Honestly, no one could have done a better job. Steve adapted to every change, request and challenge with such ease and good humor. This was a very tough gig----from Bach to Salsa, live vocals to DJ----from 3 hours to 8. Thank heavens he knew what he was doing, because we most surely did not have a clue. He actually got us through this wedding, dinner and reception and made it look easy. THANK YOU, STEVE, FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Steve Curto was a fabulous one band at our wedding. He was thoroughly professional, accommodating, organized and had a beautiful voice. He seamlessly integrated his personal playing the keyboards-synthesizer and singing with our favorite CD selections. He was extraordinarily responsive to our,musical needs, even to rehearsing a piece he was not familiar with in order to accompany me while I played a special song to my new wife on the trumpet. I cannot praise him too highly because he was magnificent, much better than I ever expected. Anyone would be extremely lucky to have him perform at their function. He deserves to be at the top of your list.

Stephen Curto's talent is excellent. I would hire him again in a heart beat. Stephen is very professional and what I liked most about him was how accomodating he was from the first contact to the last. Rarely do you find talent and niceness in a person. Anyone who hires Stephen will not be disappointed in him or his talent. Thank you Stephen for making this event less painful for me. Those who did not make it missed a treat. If I ever do another, you are the man. God Bless! Luisa Productions

Stephen turned our "low key" birthday celebration for my wife into one of the best party's we have ever had. He was prompt and very accommodating to our requests. He is extremely talented and I am already booking him again for our next party.

Mr. Curto entertained for my husband's 80th birthday party. The guests ranged in age from 18 months to 80 plus. Mr. Curto provided music that every age group could enjoy.

Professional and seamless with perfect selections. That summarizes our experience. Had a surprise 50th birthday party for my wife. I wanted a professional who would "do what's right" for the moment. Stephen delivered. I wanted 70's and 80's pop plus some favorites. We got that and more. Stephen arrived on-time (actually early) and had music going (either live or recorded) continuously throughout the evening. There was never a break in the music or the fun. Guests were amazed at how seamlessly his vocals blended-in. The party was a hit, upbeat and lively, due in large part to Stephen's professionalism and excellent selection of music. Highly recommended.
