A local St. Louis-area financial institution just hired us for their annual holiday party — for an eighth time!  We’re beyond flattered, of course.  But mostly we’re thrilled because at this point we’re practically family. Every year they bring in their VIP clients for a special party. We provide the music, but they really do […]

Terrific Fundraiser

Steve

Last night we had the pleasure of playing the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute’s “Uncorked” fundraiser. It was a dreary maybe-going-to-rain night and we were to play outside … it was interesting because after what was a great success, I turned to Barb my friend/singer and said, “I totally wasn’t in the mood for this tonight, […]

Both were a great […]

Band History Part II: Barb

SONY DSC

I can’t remember exactly when in high school I met our wonderful vocalist Barb Tippett, but we became great friends immediately. It was probably in a play or something … but she’d hang out with my guy friends and I’d hang out with her gal friends. Hanging out included sneaking into clubs to hear her […]

A Little History, Part 1

Kevin Mitchell of the Kevin Mitchell 4.

When did the band begin? I was a keyboardist in a bad rock cover band made up of other kids I went to school with called Future Shock. I was 13 and had a little mini-Farfisa organ and we played Kiss, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yes, etc. We practiced at the drummer’s house because he owned the […]
