Rod McGaha is exactly what workingmusicians strive to be, a potent combination of virtuosity and unfettered artistic passion.  But who are we to say so?  Fair question. It has been said by more than a few that the good musicians know who are the good musicians; therefore -


Max Roach (jazz legend):
(Rod is) An important new and original voice.” 

Clark Terry (jazz legend): 
“When I first heard Trees (Rod), I got that same feeling I got when I first heard Wynton Some musicians just have that thing!”

Jeff Coffin  (Dave Matthews Band): 
“Rod McGaha is a one of a kind musician and has his own identity on the trumpet – an instrument that millions of people play- and that's saying something.”

Kirk Whalum (Grammy winner): 
“Rod McGaha doesn't think he has the luxury of ever releasing music he doesn't feel deeply.  I for one am glad that he connects us to his heart each time he connects to his mouthpiece.”

Victor Wooten (Grammy winning bassist)
“ Rod is a special talent. Whether playing trumpet, writing, or arranging, he speaks with a voice that is uniquely his own. That is why I use him on my projects.

Steve began playing guitar when he was 13 years old, captivated by the folk music craze of the 1960's. Within a year he was performing in coffee houses around Baltimore and Washington, DC. Steve began transcribing Scott Joplin's classic piano rags for the guitar when he was 23. Two years later, he attended his first ragtime festival in Joplin's hometown, Sedalia, Missouri. For the thrill of performing at the original Maple Leaf Club, he entered the competition there. Unaware of the uniqueness of his style, he was astonished when he won. This instantly attracted the attention and encouragement of Eubie Blake, Rudi Blesh, Trebor Tichenor, Max Morath and William Bolcom -- the judges and the Who's Who of the ragtime world. It also led to his recording two LP's of classic rags for the Dirty Shame label. www.SteveHancoff.com
