Cascarelli’s welcomed Steve Berkemeier for your enjoyment!
Growing up the youngest of nine children, Steve Berkemeier was exposed to a wide variety of music that has had a lasting influence on him as a singer, songwriter and performer. It was during the seventies, when singer/songwriters dominated radio airwaves, that Berkemeier first learned to play the guitar. He formed a number of bands at home in Michigan and while attending the University of Dayton in Ohio and worked as a disc jockey at an oldies station after graduating. Eventually, Berkemeier settled in as a solo act, performing on the six and twelve string guitar.
“I was always impressed by performers like John Denver, James Taylor and Harry Chapin, who could entertain audiences with just their voice and guitar, and I realized that was what I wanted to do” Berkemeier says. For more than 15 years now, Berkemeier has combined the strength of his original songs with popular, classic and contemporary songs by other artists, to entertain audiences all over the State of Michigan and Ohio. His frequent appearances at area festivals and venues have made him one of the region’s most popular entertainers
