Keeping Up With Steve

BIG Giveaway

In honor of having earned 10 “Best of Weddings” awards from The Knot and 10 “Couples Choice” awards from Wedding Wire I am giving away 10 FREE performances – 1 down and 9 to go – over the next 8 months. These are intended for underserved and underprivileged groups, disabled and hospital patients, senior shut-ins and other people who may not, normally, have access to my music. PLEASE send me your ideas. Most will need to be virtual due to current circumstances but live performances are not out of the question. These are NOT for weddings, corporate events, parties, formal fundraisers or other similar events.

“We just wanted to thank you again for helping make our night so perfect and special. You were absolutely amazing and everyone continued to say how great you were at brunch today!”

Alyssa & Daniel 6/5/21 Hyeholde Electric Violinist & DJ Joey

“Hire him! Amazing vendor! Steve was a dream to work with. His talents were a perfect match for our wedding and he showed up with professionalism and skill. We appreciate him very much and would not recommend any one else for DJ or violin services. Excellent person and vendor.”

Amber & Zach 5/15/21 Sunset Room Electric Violinist & DJ Steven Vance

“I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you so much for being a part of our Big Day. Our family and friends only had great things to say about you and your music. My mom said you were amazing and she could tell you really enjoyed the love and fun all night. Clark and I can’t wait to see more from the videographer since we missed the cocktail hour – but we know our guests loved you and the performance! John was incredible, too. But, I have to say, my favorite part of the day was walking down the aisle to Marry You – that song will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you again!!!”
Maureen and Clark 5/8/21 Hyeholde PopRock Electric Violin, Solo Pianist John Garrick and DJ Steven Vance Package

“Amazing, entertaining, whimsical, beautiful, fun. We can use many words to describe Steve and his team and these are the first to come to mind. Steve stuck with us through our many changes during COVID and we’re so happy he did because his work is incredible. We have the electric violin during cocktail hour and our guests couldn’t have been happier and more pleased with her work! We were lucky enough to have Steve DJ our wedding and our guests didn’t stop dancing the whole night!!! We had also rented a photobooth through Steve and our guests loved that added piece and were so happy to grab some extra photos. We recommend Steve 10/10!!”

Sydney & Brandon 4/30/21 Lemont PopRock Electric Violinist Joyce and DJ Steven Vance

“I couldn’t have picked a better DJ for my wedding. Steven Vance and the string trio that played at my wedding were absolutely phenomenal!!! Steven was so professional and helped me in any way he could. I had to reschedule my phone calls with him several times and he was able to accommodate my schedule. He played a great mix of songs during the reception and the string trio for my ceremony got so many compliments. I would highly recommend Steven for any wedding or event. 10/10!!” Megan & Josh 3/20/21 Renaissance Hotel String Trio, Electric Violin a& DJ Package

“From the very first email Steve was so accommodating! He was quick to respond to emails and answered any question I had during planning! We hired Steve to play violin for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner and we are still getting compliments! Steve was absolutely wonderful and truly made our wedding unforgettable! Thank you Steve for everything!!”  Ashley & Brent 12/12/20 Oak Lodge PopRock Electric Violinist

“Steven was very response from the beginning to the end of my wedding process. Guests are still talking about his amazing violin and cello performance during my ceremony and thought it was so cool to have him at the reception too and were impressed modern songs that he incorporated in with his violin playing. He helped greatly to plan the night.” Paige & Ethan 11/7/20 Five Pines Barn Electric Violin and Electric Cello Duo DJ Package

“Juan was amazing! He communicated with us and helped us to pick more contemporary songs that would work well for the solo violin we booked. Our guests loved the acoustics of the violin in the smaller church we used and it helped to make our day that much better. I would definitely recommend!”
Ashley & Matthew 10/17/20 Old Stone Church Solo Violin

“We used the Steven Vance String Trio for our wedding ceremony and it was AMAZING. We received so many compliments on how lovely it made the ceremony. They did an incredible job and were very easy and professional to work with.” Courtney & Marc 10/10/20 St. Margaret Mary Church AAA String Trio

“Would recommend Steven Vance’s company to anyone! We booked their DJ package for our wedding and I’m so glad we did! Steve was extremely courteous through the whole process and helped us book the appropriate package for us. We worked with DJ Vanessa for our wedding and she was so wonderful. Awesome personality and truly cares about giving you the perfect day. She took time to get to know us and really listened to our music preferences and played the perfect mix of songs/genres. She had great energy for announcements and really ensured the reception transitions ran smoothly. It was an awesome experience from start to finish with Steven Vance and I’d absolutely work with them again!”
Jordan & Matt 10/17/20 Southpointe Golf Club DJ Vanessa
