Gene was introduced to the guitar at age 10 by his ‘cool, guitar playing’ Uncle Dan. Since that six-stringed musical introduction many years ago, Gene has evolved into a multi-genre player who can adapt to the situation in a variety of musical genres – show tunes, classical, folk, rock, gospel and jazz. In addition to plucking with Allegro, Gene strikes the chords regularly with the Standard Jazz Quartet, the Bill Welch Band, the Spiritus Christi Gospel Choir and the occasional high school musical. At his day gig Gene leads a band of engineers for a multinational company.

When you listen to Stephanie sing, you don’t simply hear a beautiful and powerful voice, you feel the heart and soul she puts into every song—whether it’s a gospel-influenced ballad, a current dance hit, lending some sweet harmonies, or adding her own flair to a jazz standard, she is as versatile as she is soulful. From intimate wedding ceremonies, church services and special events to exclusive international performances to singing the national anthem on the 50-yard line for 50,000 fans at Bills Stadium – this country girl is equally at home and happy in front of a microphone as she is out riding her horse.
