About Steve & Ted:
Steve Weisberg played lead guitar, dobro, pedal steel, and was a contributing songwriter on John Denver's Greatest Hits, Volume 1, Back Home Again, An Evening With John Denver, Rocky Mountain Christmas, Windsong, Spirit, and John Denver's Greatest Hits, Volume 2. He played on all John’s tours and TV shows as well, in what must be considered John Denver’s most successful era. He also has co-written, recorded, or been featured guest with Michael Martin Murphey, Jose Feliciano, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Billie Joe Shaver, Steve Fromholz, Ray Wiley Hubbard (Ringo’s favorite album), Delbert McClinton, and Willie Nelson, to name a few.
Rising Star Ted Vigil was raised in the Seattle area. He has been performing since the age of ten. Throughout school Ted played in concert, symphonic, and jazz bands developing his talents as a drummer and singer. In 2006 he went on to Laughlin, NV to compete in the Talent Quest '06 competition involving 28 states, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada taking first place. He then went on to win KOMO TV’ 4’s N.W. Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike Contest.
In just a very short time Ted has developed into a national act. He performs all over the country at casinos, show rooms, night clubs, fraternal clubs, private parities, fairs and festivals. Some of the venues include the Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs and the Four Seasons Resort, Dallas TX.
This year has been especially fun for Ted. Not only is he playing with Steve Weisberg for the first time, but in January he spent the weekend in Skagit County songwriting with Eddie Kilgallon, keyboard player / producer / writer with country music group Montgomery Gentry. Later this year Ted will be playing at Storme Warren’s Nashville Navy Party during Fan Fair (CMA Festival) in Nashville, TN, Cruising the Caribbean with Darryl Worley and Blake Gray on a Travelin’ Inc Country Cruise (travelininc.com) and back out to the John Denver Festival in Aspen in October.
The most heard comments after the show are, “I can’t believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver, it really took us back!”
