Introducing Cocktail Stevie

Steve Swenson (Bass Guitar, Lead Vocals) - has performed professionally for over forty years, both as Rock ‘n’ Roller “Cocktail Stevie” and country singer “Dusty Drapes”! In the early 90’s he performed for 2 years with BOBBY VEE, taking him to England and Europe several times. His penchant for high-octane entertainment and novelty has made him a musical icon.

Steve Swenson originally formed "Cocktail Stevie and the Tablerockers" in 1985.  The group was designed to become one of the Midwest’s premier backup groups.  Over the years they have opened for and have backed up over fifty Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll and Classic Country artists from the 50’s- 60’s and 70’s.  They are professional, dependable and ready to work to make your special event go smooth and without a hitch!  The wide range of music and the versatility of the musicians enable them to adapt to any situation and age group.  Their friendly, good-natured attitudes aid to their repeat business year after year. 

A great time to be had by all!
