Alexxis Steele knows the music business, first hand, since she herself grew up in the industry. Her father was a drummer/vocalist who performed in the Army’s USO shows with comedian Bob Hope, among other musicians, actors and celebrities. During the Big Band Era, her father played drums and was lead vocalist for trumpet player Harry James and his Orchestra, and replaced Frank Sinatra after he ended his tenure, on vocals, after her father returned to his own band full time. He brought her into the business at the age of 3, with her first talent contest, singing with his band by age 9 , and put together her own first band at age 12 with musicians 10 years her senior.
At age 15 she won a Philadelphia vocal contest where she was spotted by representatives for the Grammy award winning Jazz/Fusion band “Chicago”, and was asked to audition for the band.
After acceptance of her performance her parents decided against her joining them because she would have had to quit school to go on tour, and her father was already on the road touring.
Leaving the Philadelphia area, and eventually moving to the Lehigh Valley, she started performing with her own bands starting in 1983. Fast forwarding into the late 90’s , she began working for Allentown based record label B.I.E.
