A pioneer of the British Bier-keller scene, following two successive seasons in the Tyrolean Show on St Annes Pier, Lancashire, Steve was booked by Trust House Forte’s for their prestigeous new venture in Blackpool, “Jagers Bierkeller” followed by 3 years working for Andrew Rankine in Bier Kellers in Birmingham,Southport, Newcastle-on-Tyne, Wolverhampton, Leicester and Nottingham. He took his one man show for three seasons in Sweden and one year in Bermuda. Still the ultimate one man Bier Keller entertainer, he presents a 2 hr Bavarian show. The accordion is fed through 2 midi expanders giving a huge oompah sound, and a true Munich Octoberfest Experience. If its a band you want he heads the very successful Kellermeister Oompah Band (see below)

For a riotous evening Steve can add several other musicians all experienced in the bierkeller scene. It’s party atmosphere all the way and so authentic you would swear you were in Bavaria.
Listen to a live sample of the band playing In Munchen Steht followed by Breudeline drinking song. There’s no let up in the 2 x 45 minute sets the guys do It’s all high powered fun. Audience participation is a central feature of the show and the night always culminates in a Land of Hope & Glory finish. Find us on youtube in a sample of the show at Durham University’s end of term bash.
With many appearances in France for “bal musette” and French variety shows, Steve has earned a reputation as a top French musette player. In 2001 he entertained over 1500 French spectators in Avranches, Normandy eagerly awaiting the arrival of the leaders in the “Tour de France” cycle race. The event was televised throughout Europe.
St Patrick’s night is always a busy time for Steve. With an action packed programme of Irish ballads, Reels Jigs and humourous songs, your Paddy’s night event is in very capable hands. As a former band leader in the “Star Ballroom Band” in Preston he has a wealth of the right music and a touch of the “Blarney” to go with it. He now heads “The Shamrox Trio” to make your Irish nights go with a swing.
