Biography

There are two bands calling themselves The Steinways.

A) The most recent band calling themselves The Steinways are a group of four individuals who formed out of the ashes of The Kevins, Shy Guys, Overlooked, Abducted, and several other bands. The Steinways have been writing songs about cheeseburgers and performing them in front of audiences since May of 2003.

The Queens, NY based groups first demo, Bear vs. Man, was released in the summer of 2003 and was reviewed favorably (once (by a friend)). The band continues to amass fans and garner attention as it travels all the way from the outer reaches of Long Island to the parts of New Jersey that are real close to New York.

Their debut album, 'Missed the Boat', was released in June of 2006 by Cold Feet Records, followed by 'Gorilla Marketing' in 2008. The band has since broken up.

B) The first band called The Steinways was an updated version of New York doo-wop group The Laddins, after they moved to Miami and replaced David "Pinky" Coleman with a vocalist named Yvonne "Frankie" Gearing. Frankie started her career in the girl-group the Co-eds. The Steinways released a few of singles in '66 for on the Oliver label. Their final session was for a song called "I Stand Accused" and the group ended up calling it quits. Frankie was joined by two other girls, to form a new group called The Glories. "I Stand Accused" turned out to be The Steinways' biggest hit.
