With masterfully recorded backing tracks or a live swing style band, Steven recreates the sounds of the Rat Pack. Donning a tux, Steven dances onto the stage performing the tunes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Nat King Cole and more. You'll find him venturing into the audience with witty one liners, dead on impersonations, and even getting a few audience members up to dance. Having over 400 tunes to choose from on his backing tracks, Steven can create a show specifically for one genre or mix it up with several different stylings. If your preference is to drink in a jazzy trio or swing band, a Martini cool stage show can be created.
