CJ Steinway performing at Bowman’s Tavern Restaurant

Pianist/Keyboard/Vocalist/Entertainer CJ Steinway describes himself as “An old-school, two-fisted piano player with a voice for all styles of popular music.” He’s happy to be the “life-of-the-party” or background with swingin’ standards like Harry Connick, Jr., or rock and soul Piano Man-style like Elton, Billy, Ray, Jerry Lee, Dr. John and Fats Domino.

He’s also always happy to hand off the mic to a share the spotlight with a guest singer.

CJ Steinman shares how his music evolved: “I was raised on Easy 101 radio in the 70s, which provided a steady diet of Streisand, Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Barry Manilow and “Sundays with Sinatra! (Clearly, I was not raised to rock out.) My tastes as a teenager ran towards Duran Duran, Billy Joel, Hall and Oates, and Huey Lewis. What a rebel!
