Steve Goodwin Memorial Fund SpreadMusicNow

Steven Jay Goodwin passed away unexpectedly on April 22nd, 2020 in Arlington, VA.  In his 59 years of life he spent time with different crowds, did many different things, but one thing was constant, his love for music. He was in his own world when he got to play his beloved bass guitar, acoustic guitar, or even a didgeridoo.

He formed his first Rock and Roll band with his Junior High School buddies in 1975 called Styx Rivercrossing in Norwalk, CT. His first gig was such a hit that girls literally ripped his shirt apart on stage. One of his fondest memories was hearing his band Raised by Wolves music on the radio. His obsessive love of the Grateful Dead was one of the first things that he and his wife Susan bonded over. They loved playing guitar and singing together. After having kids he took a break from playing live music. Around 2010 he formed Left on Lincoln. A Rock and Roll band that quickly formed a strong fan base in the Northern Virginia community. It gave him great joy to see his friends fill the dance floor. This band won Best Band of Arlington multiple times. Most recently, he was a part of a seven piece funk/rock/jazz improvisational group.

Steve loved his Norwalk crowd. He was honored to have been invited by his lifelong friend Greg Young, co-founder and chairman of SpreadMusicNow,  to play at his barn, often considered the home base of the SpreadMusicNow organization. SpreadMusicNow is a non-profit organization that funds students' music education. They provide funds to local organizations for extracurricular music classes. If you would like to help the cause in honor of Steve please donate. Thank you!
