Stealing Dawn Entertainment is an acoustic group with a twist, performing in the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. area since 2014 after singer Stephanie Mendez and pianist Phil Kuhn discovered their mutual musical interests as colleagues.  After a few short seasons, the duo turned into a full-time trio and now four-piece. Stealing Dawn Entertainment performs musical selections from a wide range of styles, including the torch songs of the 30s & 40s, jazz standards of the 50s and 60s, classic rock, new rock and alternative, R&B, Hip Hop and current popular tunes of the decades and today. Our set mixes will typically feature a variety of artists, so you will often hear us perform an Etta James tune followed by Sam Smith, Coolio, ZZ Ward, Nina Simone, perhaps Radiohead and of course Aerosmith!

You can find us at a variety of local venues throughout northern Virginia this year (particularly in wine country), and we also stay active in local charity and fundraising.

In addition to public performances, we’re available for weddings, private parties, and corporate events. For these private events, we work with you to tailor our setlists and songs to meet your expectations.  Just let us know what you’d like to hear.
