In 2002, Steve Gau danced and sang to “Bye Bye Bye” by NSYNC on stage…at a Marco Christmas Party. He was hypnotized, so this was not by choice, but we assure you it was hilarious. Besides singing, Steve enjoys spending time with his family, friends, hockey, golf, traveling and anything related to humor.
Who inspires Steve? His father, who is in his upper 80s. Steve admires his father’s strength and resilience. He is also inspired by his loving wife and two daughters, and he likes to create fun experiences for his family.
