We were lucky enough to have Steady the Wheel featured for our Staff Christmas Party recently and they were amazing. They interacted with the crowd, got everyone engaged, and then brought the house down with their sets! Everyone was up and grooving, and there's no better review than seeing a PACKED dance floor with a live band. Very entertaining, I can't wait to see them at their next venue - where ever that may be! I received a lot of positive feedback from all those in attendance. With strong vocals, and an amazing sound; there's no doubt in my mind that Steady the Wheel brings their "A-Game" every time!
Great party band! Tried to hire these guys for 3 years to perform at our annual hockey tournament banquet. It was well worth the wait. The guys were meticulous at setting up and gave us a great show. Sound, lighting, and all around performance was amazing! Nothing but good feedback from all who attended. Hope we can get them back next year. Thanks guys
Steady the Wheel played all the good classics and provided us with dancing music all night long! They were very professional when it came down to booking them for our event and knew exactly the best way for them to be set up at the event to maximize our guests experience. They also sounded great!
On Dec 8/17 Steady the Wheel came to play at the Innisfail Legion Branch 104. With folks starting at 20-something all the way to 80+ you missed a wonderful night of dancing and partying to the wee hours of the night.The boys kept us entertained all evening and we are planning another night in the near future. Thanks for coming guys. Margaret Anderson
Great musicians, versatile playlist, crowd-pleasing, fun to have around.
We hired Steady the Wheel for our Christmas party and all had a fabulous time. They were fun, professional & played a variety of music. Everyone was up dancing by the end of the evening. Highly recommend Steady the Wheel for any type of event.
Prompt response, excellent communication, start to finish. Great bunch of guys, interactive and very professional sound quality.
Steady the Wheel played for my wedding, they were amazing and kept our guests up on the dance floor all night long! My favorite was when they played "Shout" at the end of the night with Mike on the dance floor with us!
This group of guys are so talented and down to earth I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a band for their event! I'm still trying to figure out how to host another party to have them come and play at!
They made our reception so much fun!
Steady the Wheel were very professional and committed to putting on a great show or night for my special event. the music was excellent playing a bit of everything from different juandras, sound was great total happy them and looking forward to seeing them again, I'm spreading the word thanks again guys
The social committee hired Steady the Wheel for our corporate Christmas party. Steady the Wheel was rockin the Wainwright at Heritage Park that night. It was great to watch co workers enjoying the entertainment. They played songs to which everyone knew and could dance the night away to. We still have compliments on the band and will definitely recommend them to anyone. They were great to deal with, professional and very flexible to our needs. We will use them again for sure!
Hired this band to play at our resort one hour north of Airdrie, everyone had a great time, lots of dancing with a wide variety of music. Very easy and professional to deal with. This event was held a week after the Alberta floods and at the end of the evening they made a very generous donation to this cause. Would definitely have them come out to entertain us again!
What a great time everybody had, that is the most dancing I have seen take place at our Christmas party ever. The music and the show was fantastic, and the set list was filled with nothing but great classic rock tunes. These guys were very professional & easy to deal with, and even went above and beyond during the pre-event set-up by lending an extra hand with tables and chairs. I would recommend this Band to anyone looking to have an amazing time.
Attended a fundraising event where Steady the Wheel played - was SO impressed with this local talent! Played great recognizable songs, got the crowd up and dancing over and over, and even performed a song they had prepared specifically for the event. Very personalized and fun.
I honestly didn't know this type of talent was in Airdrie! I LOVED the show Steady The Wheel did for our fundraiser - I think I sang along to 99% of the songs! Way awesome! I can't wait to have Steady The Wheel at another event!
Steady the Wheel performed at the MISA Prairies Conference in Calgary in 2012 and they did a fantastic job. Everything from the making arrangements, setting up the show, the actual performance and how they treated our delegates was very professional. The performance was very entertaining and they played a mix of cover tunes tailored to meet the interest of our delegates and people were on the dance floor all night. I would not hesitate to book Steady the Wheel for another one of our events.
What to Expect
Contemporary and classic rock n' roll on the dance floor all night long! Professional and courteous musicians who will treat your event and guests as if they were our own. Full service...no additional hands required for set-up or strike. We provide the music all night...live, and pre-recorded for pre & post show, and intermissions. Completely family friendly when required, and you can expect professional behaviour from our members at all times.
What we’ll bring:
1. ALL the music and audio gear required for the show. No need to rent or pay for any additional equipment. We are completely outfitted and use only professional grade gear.
2. Three full sets of LIVE popular and contemporary / classic rock music for your guests to enjoy and dance to.
3. Pre-recorded music to play through our system prior to the event, during the break(s) and after the gig.
What we need from you:
1. A stage or designated performance area clear of obstructions and large enough to comfortably accommodate the five of us, including all of our gear. The minimum required space is approximately 16’ wide by 12’ deep. The performance area should also be configured to be as distinct as possible and away from any heavy traffic or guest areas to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety.
2. Proximate access to a minimum of 3 - 4 power outlets, preferably "clean" ones, to operate our equipment. By “clean”, we mean electrical circuits that aren’t being otherwise used to run large facility systems such as HVAC or institutional grade lighting systems. These systems have a very negative effect on sound quality and also have the potential to damage our equipment through spikes and surges.
3. At least 2 but preferably 3 hours of semi-private and uninterrupted time to load-in, setup, and sound check prior to the start of the event.
4. 12 bottles of water and a light snack would be greatly appreciated if not too difficult to arrange.
