For the best in popular music from the '60s, '70s, and 80s through today, you need Lori Stegner! With energy, presence and a voice you can't forget, she fills a stage--and a room-- with the sounds of the hits of rock and roll.
Lori's been singing on-stage since she was seven. Of course, that wasn't pop--it was Broadway. "If I Were King Of The Forest", from The Wizard of Oz. In a second grade class play. Lori brought the house down. But she soon branched out. "My father gave me one of those little karaoke tape decks, with a real microphone. I'd spend all day singing along to anything I could get on tape." She went on singing through school, entering talents shows. "I usually won," she admits. In college, a friend talked her into coming down to a local recording studio to sing backup vocals. She auditioned and was hired on the spot, launching her professional singing career there.
In this video, she performs "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me" before a live audience.
Since those early beginnings, Lori has fronted a band and performed "on more stages than I want to remember", she says. She's toured with Ray Stevens and Connie Francis, and headlines the shows produced by herself and her husband, Phillip Stegner of Maestro Productions. But if you ask, she'll still belt out The Cowardly Lion's song for you.
Listen to her interpretation of Mariah Carey's "Hero", or her sweet, soulful rendition of Karen Carpenter's "Merry Christmas, Darling" and "Close To You". Or for something completely different, watch her go from Frankie Valli's"Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" to the Eagles' "Life In The Fast Lane". And don't miss her replication of all three Andrews Sisters on "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"!
