Learn More About Stef with Steve Moos

Get ready for wonderful nights of Folk-Rock 'n' Blues and more.  Stef and Steve are both talented singer / songwriters and accomplished musicians and they've been vibing together for a while now, but when you experience their funky, soulful and inspirational repertoire you'll know why their evenings at the Unurban Cafe have become so popular. 

Though she's known for her World Music Ensemble, Stefani's musical roots needed to be shaken out once in a while. Collaboration with Steve Moos gives her the chance to sing her originals and some of her favorite Folk-Rock 'n' blues classics and also gives her the chance to play the Dulcimer, a little ukulele,percussion and she has acquired a beautiful Cavaquino from her trip to Rio. She especially loves singing Steve's original songs! 

Steve plays Mandolin, guitar and piano. His style is warm, soulful, inviting, and damn gritty when it has to be.  Steve's originals all feel like classics... you'll swear, that used to be your favorite song.
