Many noteworthy personalities have commented about Steven Maglio's distinctive vocal gift. Talented actor Tony Danza remarked after hearing Steven sing at a Patsy's Sinatra bash, "I like Steven's singing because he pays attention to those minor details that make a song popular, and the puts those details into his own renditions. That's one of the marks of a great singer." Michael Dale of Broadwayworld.com noted, "What's most impressive about Steven Maglio is that even while tributing a singer he so obviously admires, he manages to make the evening his own. You may walk in because of Frank Sinatra, but you'll leave with an appreciation for a terrific entertainer named Steven Maglio." Sidney Zion, New York Daily News columnist and friend of Frank Sinatra reported, "If Frank Sinatra could have seen the show you just did, you would be the one he'd choose to continue singing his songs."
Steven Maglio has appeared as a guest vocalist with Deana Martin (in the Deana Martin Variety Show conducted by Vincent Falcone) as well as the main attraction in venues such as The Rainbow Room, The Blue Note, The Sands Hotel, The Paris Hotel and so many others.
