"I have known and worked with Steve Knob for over 20 years.  His friendship and knowledge has had a profound impact on me professionally, and his arrangements have played a huge role in the success of my bands.  I highly recommend Steve's service to any and all band directores.

"Steve Knob is a master in his arrangements of creating such rich, deep textures.  He can make a small group sound huge!"

"We had a great year. I cannot thank you enough for all of your help! We ended up being 8th in the state in our class, and we were just a few points away from making state finals. It was by far the most successful year this band has had! We went from being last place in our class last year to being where we were this year, very much because of your music, so thank you! "

Have to give Steve a shout out. We are using his arrangements this ...fall, and are having a great time with them. I think this is our third year, and we love his work.
