Steve has been a member of Pinski Zoo since the late eighties. Almost impossible to categorise the band swing from virtuosic jazz to gritty funk with freedom and movement, veering into leftfield territory and returning with snappy anthem- like tunes. Unpredictable and exciting, they carved a unique style in the UK and won praise from critics at home and abroad. Their eclectic fusion of style forshadowed the move towards mixing influences in much of today's music. With 8 albums and extensive touring in Europe, Poland and New York in the late 80's and 90's and a "Best British Band" at the British International Jazz Awards in '91 they are back touring after several years of individual projects.
