 Rave Reviews for Steve's show "Our Mighty Mississippi"
Having worked on the Mississippi  for almost thirty years, and
paddled its length, I found "Our Mighty Mississippi" truly captures the river's spirit.
- John Sullivan, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

The audience jumped to their feet for a standing ovation after Steven Marking's show
"Our Mighty Mississippi". Being we are a river town, folks could easily relate to the music,
stories and photos of this great river and Steven's beautiful baritone voice and warm
presence made it even more captivating!

Rave Reviews for Steve's latest CD "Holy Chestnuts"
What a work of love this album is! The artistry of both Steven and organist Donald Livingston,
as they perform Victorian Anthems,  is of the highest order. This latest collaboration shows off their partnership both beautifully and meaningfully.

Rave Reviews for Steve's river talk "1811: A Roosevelt, A Comet, A Steamboat and the New Madrid Earthquakes"
 By acting this story out you brought history to life! I had no idea we had earthquakes in the midwest - I never learned this in school!
