Meet “King” Steve

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 9 Second

By Angie Mack Reilly April 2016

“King” Steve is a seasoned, Milwaukee-born native who was heavily influenced by James Brown, Michael Jackson, Al Green, Luther Vandross, Rick James and Smoky Robinson.

Growing up without a father in the home, Steve chose James Brown to be his surrogate mentor.   He spent countless hours listening to songs like “Super Bad” and “Papa’s got a Brand New Bag” while mastering the art of mimicking James Brown.

“King” Steve impersonated James Brown in July 2016 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.  The Hansberry-Sands Theatre Company presented “Let’s Party!  A Journey through Song…” which was a Duke Ellington Tribute sponsored by the Milwaukee Club Frontiers.  “King” Steve has also performed as a James Brown impersonator at festivals such as “Bronzeville Days” in Milwaukee.

“King” Steve has mastered the art of impersonating Michael Jackson as well.  “I always wanted the total package that Michael Jackson had,”  says Steve.  One song that he rehearsed to  was the Jackson Five’s “Never Can Say Goodbye” song as he tried to nail down Jackson’s stage persona.

Steve has also performed around Milwaukee at  Jean’s Supper Club, Diamond’s Lounge, Jamie’s Club Theatre and Transfer Pizza.  Contact: angie@ozaukeetalent.com

From Keep Music Alive


Why is this important?
We all know, that often the biggest hurdle to anything is just getting started. We believe that by encouraging music teachers and potential students to reach out to each other, many of these new students will continue to learn and play music long after the month of March is over. Our goal is to get as many new students to begin learning how to play music as we can. Only by sparking musical interest in new students will quality music be created for future generations.

Keep Music Alive was founded by husband and wife team Vincent James & Joann Pierdomenico in the summer of 2014. Their mission is to promote the VALUE of MUSIC: For our children’s education, for the many types of therapy music is being utilized for and for our overall happiness. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn how to play music and every adult needs to be reminded that its never to late to start playing. -Joann Pierdomenico
