excerpt from a review in the Chicago Reader:
It may be daunting to decipher Redmoon’s moon shadows, but it’s easy to fall under their spell. Enhancing the magic of masks, makeup, and puppets is Jonathan Steinmeier’s percussive score for music saw, kettledrum, and cello, providing the perfect playful complement to the midsummer madness. –Lawrence Bommer…
Jon’s performance experience has greatly influenced his writing and arranging skills, from marching and symphonic percussion playing to classical piano competitions to touring with Mavis Staples on keyboards. Jon Currently performs as rapper “Steinomite” and composes and performs with Chicago’s “circus punk marching band” Mucca Pazza.
