Steve Oliver

Hang on to your seats and prepare yourself for the live experience that is STEVE OLIVER. His jubilant, growing legacy continues in 2008 with the release of his first ever DVD/CD 2 disk set, "One Night Live" Performing an incredible 200 dates a year, the next superstar of adult contemporary pop and world music all but dares you not to tap your toes, sing along gleefully and smile, like a kid at Christmas. He's doing it. And it's the real deal. Often likened to a hybrid of George Benson and Bobby McFerrin, Steve revels in sharing the joy of what he does best -celebrating life and music. In all of this is brought to you by the power of Positive Energy, his honest to God, bright side of the street approach to life and just coincidentally, the title of his hit 2002 album, which hit the Billboard Top 20 and ranked #1 on the year end list of the fifty most played recordings throughout Canada in 2003, according to smoothjazzcanada.com
