Finally, while attending Penn State University, he met Billy Price. Steve spent many years on the road playing Blues and R&B with Pittsburgh great Billy Price and the Keystone Rhythm Band. He left Billy Price and went back to school to continue his education and later joined local band 8 th Street Rox performing in and around Pittsburgh for some 22 years. Recently, wanting to get back to his blues roots, he joined Jill West and Blues Attack and now also playing with The Stevee Wellons Band.
