Steve mostly sings in English, but is also comfortable in French, Spanish and Italian. Steve was a regular in Las Vegas for years, working at such venues as the Riviera Hotel, the Dunes, and Liberace's Tivoli Gardens Restaurant. He has also worked at many 5 star hotels, the prestigious University Club in Washington, D.C. where many of the federal government elite gathered.
