Steve Ketterer / Bio

A singer/songwriter from Newark, DE, Steve was born into a family of performers. His grandfather was a drummer in the Big Band era and performed with legends like Frank Sinatra and Louie Armstrong. His grandmother was in an acrobatic dancing group that toured the world in the 30s and 40s. They were called the 4 American Girls and they were kicked out of Germany in 1939 when Hitler attended a show and the girls refused to salute him. The Gestapo seized them, put them on a boat to America and told them never to return.
Steve has four CDs with 2001's "Chasing Shadows", 2002's "The Ordinary Man Sessions" 2006's "Hidden Truth." and “Alone at the Bitter End” which will be released in 2011. His songs are played on Delaware radio stations WSTW & WVUD and his music has been heard in 15 US states and 6 countries. Steve also lends his music to charitable organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Rehoboth Beach YMCA Scholarship Program and AIDS Delaware. He’s also featured on the WSTW/Marine Corp Toys for Tots Christmas CDs in 2004, 2006 and 2010.
On November 27, 2002, Steve sang "Sweet Caroline" with Neil Diamond in a live TV performance on the Caroline Rhea Show. When Neil handed Steve the microphone, Neil was seen telling Caroline how good Steve was. Neil Diamond message boards talked about it for days and lots of those fans bought Steve’s CDs. It was a moment Steve will never forget.
In 2005 Steve began performing the National Anthem for the Wilmington Blue Rocks minor league baseball team. According to a team official, Steve was a favorite of the team and season ticket holders. This lead to Steve competing in the New York Giants "Albany Idol" competition in August of 2008. As the winner, Steve sang the National Anthem in Giants Stadium prior to kickoff of the Giants/Patriots game on August 28, 2008. More recently, in 2010, Steve made his debut at both the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and at the Bitter End in New York City.
