About us

Who is Steppin’ Out?

The Central Coast’s Finest Dance Band is now into its eleventh year.  Our Santa Maria-based ensemble began in 2009 with the shared vision of Junior Juanich and Mike Arriola. To add  to their own talents, they’ve  brought together the best of musicians in Abraham Robles, Larry Kim, and Joseph Del Giorgio. Add to that, carefully-chosen and much-appreciated guest performers, and we have talent, chemistry, and passion! 

Voted the #1 Band in Northern Santa Barbara County in 2010, 2011, 2014, 2015, and 2019, Steppin’ Out performs at a variety of events such as concerts, weddings, corporate parties and birthdays.  We consistently draw record-breaking crowds during the Summer Concert in the Park Series, and our Raddison New Year’s Eve Gala has sold out eight years in a row! Our loyal fan following (we affectionately call them  “Steppers”) continues to expand with every show and they often share their enthusiasm on our Steppin’ Out Facebook Page. 


We believe strongly  in the importance of professionalism , enthusiasm and connecting with our audience through personal interaction. As our repertoire and reputation grows, so  does the “Stepper Nation.” We are all coming out of a very challenging year–when it’s safe–we can’t wait to see you STEPPIN’ OUT on the dance floor!
