Dave Steffen Turns Stone Harbor Blue

Brittany Jordt caught up with Dave Steffen after a show at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay earlier this summer.

She shares, “The bar was crowded and the dance floor packed, with all ages grooving to awesome originals like ‘Phantom Lady,’ off Steffen’s 2004 album, Eve of Autumn.”

The Dave Steffen Band, which has been touring for nearly 30 years, will once again stop to perform at Stone Harbor on September 10 and 11.

Here’s what Steffen had to say after the earlier show at Stone Harbor:

Brittany Jordt (BJ): You seem to have a wide range of audience members. What do you think makes your music appeal to everyone?

Dave Steffen (DS): Especially at Stone Harbor, you get people from all over. I play for the young and old and everyone seems to get along, dance and have a good time. It’s really a lot of fun. I enjoy what I’m doing. I’ve been doing it a long time. I’m really blessed. I still love playing the guitar and love being out there.

BJ: You’ve been out on the road a long time. Do you still make your living as a musician?

DS: Yes, everyone in the band does it for a living, and we love to travel. We mostly tour in the Midwest now: Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. We also get out to Maui, Hawaii. I’m an entertainer, whether it’s more of a concert, performance, special event or late night bar jam. I play for whatever’s going on and enjoy seeing people having a good time! I do my own thing, too.
