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 – 2 down and 8 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.

Aaron & Rebecca 10/9/21 Chanteclaire Farm Cello and Keyboard Duo

“He was great! His attention to details was essential as we had a flashmob come in during dinner. Everything went off with perfection as we all worked as a team. Anthony’s ability to read what a crowd likes kept everyone dancing. The reception was energetic and fun. Anthony was the perfect fit for the Egan’s. Thank you!”

Elegant Event Solutions for Angelina & Andrew 10/2/21 Omni William Penn Hotel DJ Anthony

“So much more than a DJ! I used Steven Vance for my daughter’s wedding at The Pennsylvanian in Pittsburgh on Sept 4, 2021, he came highly recommended from a co-worker of mine and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is so talented and is the utmost professional. We had him perform on the violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour which was both elegant and entertaining. He roamed the tables with his violin during dinner, taking requests from the guests at each table…so many in attendance mentioned what a special touch that was. After dinner, Steven got the party started, keeping so many dancing all night long and keeping to the brides schedule of events all night long! When I put in a last minute request from mom to the bride, he just smiled and added it to the playlist before the finale song…so professional and just an all around great pick!”

He arrived early and was able to set up on the rooftop! He was so pleasant. I would hire him again any day and recommend to anyone looking for a talented Violinist! Thank you so much Steven!”

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

Thank you Steve for everything!!”  Ashley & Brent 12/12/20 Oak Lodge PopRock Electric Violinist
