Min. Steve "MusicMan" Turner & Praise Unlimited Christian Jazz Band

 Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Praise Unlimited CJB is one of the most innovative & creative christian jazz bands in the tri-state area. Versatile, talented,annointed,and professional. Booking this band of experienced ministers of music is an elevation from the ordinary to extrodinary.


The Praise Unlimited Christian Jazz Band was started in 2000, while serving as the House Band for a Church Mother's appreciation service. Guests were so impressed, that they kept walking up to Min. Steve wanting to know their band's name. Later that month a good friend of Min. Steve, Pastor Edward Ramsey, needed a band for his mother's birthday celebration, which was being held as an outdoor catered event. Min. Steve volunteered. The guests & family all danced to their music, wanting to know the band's name. Now twelve (12) years later, the Praise CJB is still going strong. The band's founder & leader, Min. Steve, writes & sings original songs influenced by: Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder ( He has been compared to both), Parliament Funkadelic, Rev. John P. Kee, The Winans & J.Moss. Inherited my musical gifts from my late mother, who had the 1st. Gospel choir in Maryland who who was created to minister on the radio fro a weekly church broadcast. The Radio Chorus served for 46 years. Min. Steve got his 1st. chance to lead a song, sang for 14 yrs.,and eventually, served as their last organist for 7 yrs. Power! Praise! Funk! & Jazz! is the only way to describe this band.
