Steve Pistorius has the distinction of being the only living New Orleanian who specializes in early Jazz piano. Whether playing solo or leading a band, he creates joyful and swinging renditions of oft-neglected rags, waltzes, marches, pop tunes, blues and stomps.
Love of the music turned into a lifetime profession in 1973. Steve answered an ad for a five nights a week gig, winning the spot by default as no one else showed up for the audition. Mentored and influenced since then by musicians like Neil Unterseher, Armand Hug, Jeanette Kimball, Morton Gunnar Larsen, Butch Thompson, Burt Bales, Don Ewell, Max Morath and Eubie Blake, Steve has developed his own unique piano style.
