To list the past venues, we contacted Steve directly to ask for a list, and here was his response:

"To list every venue I have played over the years would take another five web-pages, and honestly, does anyone even read these things anyway? A shorter list would be a list of venues I HAVEN'T played yet, such as: The White House, Madison Square Garden, Staples Center, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Albert Brooks, the roof of Abbey Road Studios, the basement at the Playboy Mansion, the Tonite Show, ANY of the network Talk Shows, and Esther's Orbit Room and Peacock Lounge (I KNOW, you woulda thought...)"

"However, if I must, a short, abbreviated list of played venues would consist of: The Las Vegas Hilton, MGM, Frank and Dean's, Mastro's, Vitello's, JAX, Barone's, the Palms, the Cow Palace, the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage, various casinos nationwide such as San Manuel, Pala, Pauma, Hollywood, Del Sol, Eldorado, Harrah's, Diamond Joe's, etc, various performing arts centers, Theatre Cedar Rapids, the Grand Opera House, various comedy clubs including the Improv, Laugh Factory and other clubs that seem to play on words like Giggles, Smiles, Grins, and Bemused Apathy, Tommy T's, Bogie's, Jilly's, Nunzio's Knuckle Room, too many restaurants to list, tons of bars and nightclubs, conventions and corp parties for Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Civitan, car shows, fairs, festivals...ooh, like the Strawberry Festival, the Flower Festival, the Garlic Festival and the Rhubarb Hub-bub (OK, I was kidding about the last one but if anyone is actually reading this, they need a bigger life!), various benefits and charities like Actors for Autism, Ability First, MDA, various senior centers like Leisure World, CANADA (...well British Columbia anyway, that's like ALMOST Canada, eh?), The Princess Cruises, the Feast of San Gennaro, the penthouse at the Chateau Marmont for Ryan Seacrest (which is NOT the same as the Penthouse under the recliner in my Dad's study!) and Ritchie Sambora's living room with his family and Jon BonJovi! (TRUE! Hey, I had to drop at least a couple of names!) Ok, I hope that's enough for now because there's a lady that has been banging on my front door for over 45 minutes...so I guess I should let her out ..."
