Here's what's being said about
KICKS ASS! If you want one of the best, flat out American
rock shows in the house,... hook 'em up! And I'll even
plug the show live on the air!

played in rock bands for over 25 years and throw a band together
each year for my summer pool party. I heard Steal Dawn
playing a party at a La Costa Tennis Club one night and thought
it was a DJ as I walked through the parking lot. They were
THAT good. So I hired them for my summer party -- and they
blew us away!
musicianship, vocals, vibe and professionalism is miles beyond
any local band I have ever heard or played in. Considering
that they have stayed together about 18 years speaks volumes to
vocals are beyond amazing, with a unique, captivating quality
and passion I've never heard from any cover band. Steal
Dawn brings a deep, clean pocket and perfect mix to a powerful
set list, which loads the dance floor all night. And they
do it effortlessly with a unique stage presence and entertaining
spirit. Plus, they even let me sit-in on drums for half a
set. Yeah baby!!
knocked out by these guys. They arrived with a remarkable
spirit and energy and left us with hugs, four new friends, a
longing for a night that would never end and FANTASTIC memories
that will last forever.

Private Summer Party known as "OXFEST
Steal Dawn gave an extraordinary performance! Their talent, experience level, time together and love of music, really comes through in the show. All the members sing, and so were able to play something for everyone. I think they played as many genres, as songs. These guys know how to have fun!
In the thirteen years of this series, Steal Dawn is by far the best 70s - to present cover band we've ever had. I would highly recommend Steal Dawn to anyone without reservation.
- Kevin Davis, Lake Elsinore Concert
The Sheraton Carlsbad
Resort & Spa contracted Steal Dawn for our 20Eleven NYE Bash.
While demonstrating an impressive dedication to our event, the
band exceeded our expectations. We received many compliments on
their performance from our guests and staff.
We look forward to working
with them again in 2011

I would hire these guys
again in a heartbeat! They were professional,
accommodating, fun, personal and they ROCKED! They played
a great range of music. Our entire party LOVED them!
I highly recommend them and I am hoping to get the chance to
hire them again one day.

We are still in shock
about how fun our wedding reception was because of how great you
were!!! I've never seen ALL our friends and family dance but
somehow you managed to do it! Out of everything, we got the most
compliments about you guys and how much energy you had on top of
being great musically. We honestly don't think we could've found
a better band for our wedding. Thank you for being easy to work
with, genuine, and enthusiastic throughout the planning and the
day of. We're already talking about having an anniversary party
with you guys performing!!! You killed it that night and all our
guests and we had a blast!

killed it, every single person at our wedding complemented on how
great you guys were. Beyond putting on an awesome show you were very
responsive in the months leading up to the event while we were
planning, which made our lives much easier. I want to thank you guys
again for everything and we'll definitely come check you out at
another show sometime.

"Well now that thing’s have settled and I can think again I would
like to say that on behalf of Craig and I both YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I
can not say enough great things about you all. We have always
enjoyed you guys at the Inn when we get a chance to be away from our
daughter BUT to have you play at our wedding was great. The songs
and the vibe that you brought was more then I could have asked for.
I have to say BIG thanks to Andy for giving up his guitar to let a 4
year old play; his parents are now blaming us if he doesn’t want to
go to college. I think that was the next best highlight to you
letting me get up and sing (thanks for drowning out my voice so it
sounded good). WE HAD A GREAT NIGHT and was sad it ended, but WE ARE
SO HAPPY YOU WERE APART OF IT!!!
YOU ROCK and see you at the INN..."

want to thank you for playing such great music at our party!
Everyone talked about how good you all were and how you
adjusted your music to the feel of the party, including letting a
couple of neighbors sing a few songs. We hope to do this again
next summer and we plan to book "Steal Dawn" well in advance!"

back from our honeymoon and things have settled down, we wanted to thank
you and Steal Dawn for playing at our wedding reception. It's five
weeks later and we're still getting compliments from our guests about
how great you guys were. Everything was perfect from the beginning
when you announced the wedding party until the end when you kept
granting our guests' requests to keep the party going. We
especially appreciate how you learned new material for our special
dances. Very few bands would have put forth that extra effort and
we cannot thank you enough. We can't wait to see Steal Dawn play

consummate professionals and a lot of fun.
The compliments have been flowing

"Just a short note to tell you
how much we, here at Viejas, appreciate the great job you and your group
Steal Dawn do for us. As I track the dates Steal Dawn has played
in the Dream Catcher Showroom, it shows that our revenue has increased
with each date. I attribute this to several facts, you keep adding
new material, you make new fans every date, and people that have had the
pleasure of hearing Steal Dawn come back. This is a great
testament to your professionalism!! Feel free to mention my name
to any prospective client, it is easy to recommend talent!!!
I always get great pleasure
seeing a new, young group take an opportunity and make the most of it.
Your vocal arrangements are 'world class' and from the first time I
heard Steal Dawn, I have thought that, with the right management and a
few breaks, I would be hearing about the group making a splash on the
national music scene.

"I just wanted to tell you what a
great time we had New Year's Eve. Steal Dawn rocked Borrego
Springs! The band was extremely professional and played a great
variety of music. I am really enjoying the CD too! I am glad we
heard you playing at the World Series and that you contacted us.
We are looking forward to your
next visit. We have had great feedback from everyone that attended
New Year's. I have even heard from people that did not attend but
heard through the grapevine what a wonderful band we had. Good
news travels fast in Borrego."

"I wanted to drop you a note
thanking you and all the members of Steal Dawn for your recent
performances at our client events in Rancho Santa Fe and Carlsbad.
The guests at the parties thoroughly enjoyed the music. Further,
Steal Dawn was nothing but professional in every aspect, arrived on time
and were able to set up quickly without incident. Behind The
Scenes would proudly recommend "Steal Dawn" to our clients. Thank
you again for your services. We look forward to working with you

"Thank you so much for playing at
our wedding reception! You were the talk of the celebration.
It is always a challenge to find that right "band" who can cater to
every demographic and get the party started and you were exactly what we
needed. Everyone wanted to know "who the band was" so they could
book you for their own parties. Thanks again for making our
wedding celebration so much fun!
P.S. I look forward to
adding Steal Dawn to the entertainment line up at Seaport Village."

"I hired Steal Dawn to perform at
our 2002 Holiday Party in San Ramon, California. I had heard Steal
Dawn earlier in the year at a bar in San Diego and was greatly impressed
with their musical diversity and quality. Steal Dawn performed
brilliantly and helped BETA Healthcare Group put on the best holiday
party. The band members were polite, professional and very willing
to switch moods and comply with requests from guests.
I hope to have the opportunity to
work with Steal Dawn in the future and recommend them highly to anyone
looking for a great rock n' roll band with plenty of fantastic dancing

"Well, it is all
officially over, including my hangover. I wanted to share with you that I
cannot count how many compliments I was given in regard to your performance.
All at the party were impressed and had a great time that night. I can't
thank you enough for providing such good music and all the hard work of
setting up and tear down. Your a fantastic group of guys and be sure to show
them all this e-mail. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I look
forward to seeing you play in the future. Thank You Again!,"
