Screamin’ Steve Barlotta has brought so much joy to the Jersey Shore over the last 40 years! He started with Eddie Testa and the cruisers, before he formed the Sensational Soul Cruisers 30 years ago. The Sensational Soul Cruisers are one of the Jersey Shores most iconic bands with Screamin’ Steve famously playing his saxophone.
Steve is finally winning this terrible battle with Covid-19 that he has been battling since March. He spent 36 days in the hospital, 24 of which he was on a ventilator. After both Hydroxychloroquine and Remdesivir weren’t able to help him, the situation grew more dire. There were 2 or 3 times that his condition was so serious that we almost lost him. Finally, after lowering his sedation, and giving him convalescent plasma, he turned the corner and the doctors were finally able to remove the ventilator. Steve is now beginning the long road to recovery at an Acute Rehabilitation Hospital, where he will spend the next several weeks regaining the use of his body that has been basically shut down for over a month. 
Screamin' Steve has always been so generous and giving to all. It's time we all help him!
