The Cowboy Cabaret

Steve McAllister has been dazzling audiences with his music since his debut in the historic Rainbow Room on LA’s Sunset Strip. Steve offers a growing number of memorable originals and homages to an eclectic blend of songwriters. With his guitar, Georgia, Steve honors the spirits of performers like Prince, Frank Sinatra, Hank Williams, Ed Sheeran, Pink, Johnny Cash, Queen, and the Rolling Stones, while also making every song his own.

Steve offers performances as himself in a solo set, as a duet with a drummer, with the Wandering Soul Band, and infusing the performance with humor and poetry in his award-winning one-man show, The Cowboy Cabaret.

The Cowboy Cabaret is a blend of poetry, comedy, music, and inspiration. The show includes an interactive component with the audience, allowing them to choose the songs, and the accompanying poems, stories, and anecdotes about “The Cowboy Way.” A Florida native, Steve has traveled the country in pursuit of his goal of becoming a renaissance man, honing his skills as a writer, poet, performer, and storyteller. Building on his degree in Psychology and experience as a community organizer, Steve has crafted a performance that is interactive, entertaining, and good for the soul that seeks a rejuvenating and inspiring experience.

Each of the songs in The Cowboy Cabaret repertoire are printed on a custom deck of cards, and each of them has a predetermined poem, story, or anecdote. Audience members are selected to choose the songs that will be performed, resulting in a different show for every performance. With a diverse blend of popular, classic, and original songs, The Cowboy Cabaret asks audiences to take a break from the life that they know, to learn a little about the cowboy way, and maybe find some hope.
