Performer Johnny Steiner is a favorite throughout central Ohio. Known for his singing voice and clever wit, Steiner hails from Green Camp and is a graduate of Elgin High School in Marion County. On August 9, Steiner will once again hit the stage at his college alma mater, Otterbein University. The concert is called YOUNG AT HEART, and will serve as the official launch of the singer’s first album in five years, also entitled YOUNG AT HEART.
“I have been thinking about making an album of children’s music for years, and have kept a running list of songs I love from my childhood. On the recent occasion of my 40th birthday, the album took a slightly different direction as I reflected on getting older, and just what it means to be ‘young at heart.’ So, here alongside the kids’ fare and novelty tunes you’ll find some life-lessons, a few philosophies, and a number of charming reflections on perspective.”
Steiner’s concerts offer great entertainment – including a bevy of surprise guests, lots of laughs, and some fantastic music. Backing up Steiner are Eileen Huston on piano, Eric Van Wagner on bass, drummer David K. Johnston, and guitarist Tim Cummiskey.
YOUNG AT HEART will be held in the main theater at Otterbein University on Sunday, August 9, 2015 at 2pm. Admission is $15 at the door. General seating. The theater is handicap-accessible.
Steiner has been a free-lance musician for nearly two decades. In 2012, he was named music director of Vaud-Villities – the longest running singing and dancing spectacular, which started in Columbus in 1943.
