Internet icon Cindy Margolis has always listed Vermilion and Metal Skool as her 2 favorite live bands ever!

Steve originally formed the band Brooke Shive & the 45's with his daughter Brooke Jamison bringing his veteran experience as a drummer and to bring his songwriting to the forefront. The other reason, it was a perfect platform for Brooke's fabulous vocal talent and her commanding stage presence.

After 7 years and some successful singles and an album, Way Past Gone, (the award winning title song) they decided to move in a younger direction.

And now, just in time for the holiday season Vermilion and Shive has delivered a terrific yuletide tune, CHRISTMAS (IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR). This original holiday song features Bill Monaghan on lead vocals and harmonies & produced & written by Steve Shive.
