STEPPE is one of Alberta's newest Ukrainian-Canadian zabava bands.
STEPPE plays the kind of music that gets people up and dancing! The band draws from a wide selection of live dance music for all functions and events - everything from the most current Ukrainian dance hits to the more traditional polkas, waltzes and of course, the "kolomeyka" or Ukrainian circle dance - where young and old take the opportunity to show off their Ukrainian dance skills. The band also plays North American music including classic rock, oldies, country and top 40.
Since forming in 2014, the band has already played at the Vegreville Pysanka Festival (three times), the Babas and Borscht Festival in Andrew, Calgary's Ukrainian Festival and the Edmonton Ukrainian Cultural Village. STEPPE is proud to have been one of the 2017 featured bands at Canada's National Ukrainian Festival in Dauphin, Manitoba.
STEPPE is Peter Zmewsky (Vocals/Guitar), Dmytro Rusnak (Vocals/Accordion), Adrian Zmewsky (Bass), John Dymianiw (Trumpet/Percussion) and David Skubleny (Drums).
