By 1971, Steve had performed with Boone's Farm and Lodestar (regulars at L Street's The Cave), and was preparing a musical leap that would keep him occupied until 1979, while financing his future musical aspirations. Co-founding the group Fire & Ice, he merged and indulged his love of Rock, Show Music, Pop and R&B into a dance and show band that would tour up and down the eastern United States, entertaining audiences from New England to Miami.
In 1976, song writing had also progressed to the point that he was receiving recognition in national songwriting competitions, as well as the honor of having his songs performed by many local acts. This led Steve to test the waters of professional recording (he had recorded at other facilities since he was 15) and he set up temporary shop in his parents house. He co-founded ROAR Productions in 1978, with noted arranger/producer Doug Arthur, and eventually moved to a business location after F&I ended its run. Steve closed ROAR at the end of 2012 and has rebranded his professional face as Steven Rosch Media (www.stevenroschmedia.com), where he serves as President and Creative Director. Through the years he has expanded his creative palette to include composing, arranging and producing jingles and soundtracks for TV, Radio & Film, producing and writing copy for video and advertising, mastering for CD and, as he puts it, "just about anything that is legal."
From 1982 and beyond, Steve had performed in a number of Society Bands and in the mid 1990s he joined the legendary Baltimore horn-driven band, The Admirals, as lead singer and guitarist. In 1997 he went into a performance semi-retirement and reassessment, until reemerging as founding member/singer/guitarist/keyboardist for The Janglebachs, a 60s/70s tribute rock act.They still perform and record; their release the Steve Rosch penned “I See You” is available on Amazon and iTunes; which is to be followed by the award-winning composition "Make Me Your Woman" performed by fellow Janglebachs vocalist and old friend, Vicky Blacker.
By 2010, Steve decided to add a few solo dates to his performance schedule and include some of the music he had been missing for the last several years. If you check out Steve's Song List you will find some of his beloved R&B and Philadelphia Soul Ballads, side by side with some choice selections by The Everly Bros, Elvis Costello, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen and just about anything else that strikes Steve's fancy. Around the same time, he formed 80s tribute act, Vikki & The Hitz, with Vicky Blacker and Dean Andrews (Bruce Wescott, New Censation, Hubcaps.)
In 2014 Steve performed regularly with The New Monopoly, a horn-driven corporate band, in the tradition of The Admirals, led by Justin & Doug Lewis.
Now, 2015 finds Steve resettled near the beautiful Delaware Seashore and playing with several other Washington/Baltimore transplants In 4 Star Revue.
New for 2016, Steve is honored to be inducted into The Maryland Entertainment Hall Of Fame TWICE, first for his musical and studio career and second, for his 4 year stint with the ADMIRALS.
