Alto Affect / Bio

We play an eclectic mix across the genre's from 1930 through today!

Tonya Steiner (vocals) is a vocalist that started a little later than most, but with hard work, dedication and a GREAT vocal coach, she realized that anything was possible! Helen Welch was recommended as a coach, and Tonya learned privately from her for over seven years studying Jazz. She was taught that it is not about sounding like the original artist when covering a song, but about making the song your own. Through-out her career, she has been in an adult choir and Praise Team (Alive Every Day) at her church. During the 14 years on the Praise she has been the lead for the past eight choosing songs and leading vocals weekly. A highlight in her career is when she was chosen to perform in a choir to sing with Michael W. Smith. For the past five years, Tonya has been singing at various wineries, Assisted Living Homes, Camps, Churches and various Private Events with backing tracks. Currently the band has come to drop all tracks and play live, with keys and bass.

Scott Gotschall (piano) has been playing piano for 30 years. His first performances were in church, and in high school he had the opportunity to study for several years at the Cleveland Institute of Music. After being active in various bands and choirs in high school, Scott Gotschall went on to graduate from Indiana University in 2001 with a Bachelor's in Music Business. Although opportunities to perform professionally have been sporadic since then, his first love has always been music. He currently freelances while also working full-time as the receptionist at the Hudson School of Music.

Bob Steiner (Bass) began playing guitar when he was a child. This was not where Bob felt he was being called. Bob Steiner got back into music through sound engineering where he worked with various choirs, adult, teen and youth, as well as Praise and Worship services. This also included working sound for large events helping to coordinate the sound with the lead sound technicians for the bands Big Daddy Weave, Royal Taylor and a few other known bands. Bob finally decided to pick up the bass and has enjoyed playing during Praise and Worship Services and with his wife Tonya where he would fill in the bass parts on the backing tracks. He has enjoyed learning from the other musicians and has worked very hard while taking lessons from Steve Cipriano and Bryan Thomas studying the Jazz /Blues genres.
