The Recommendation

Ask about our 4 Martini Set!

Like many bands, the KM4 get many gigs from recommendations from people around the St. Louis metro area. This is really the highest form of flattery – when we’ve been hired by one person, and handled the event (be it wedding, be it corporate event, etc.) and performed in such a manner that they sing […]

Holiday Corporate Party Perfection

Last season the Kevin Mitchell 4 played a really fun swanky corporate bash at the Central Table Restaurant.

It’s end of August and it’s hot here in St. Louis, but thinking cool thoughts because we just booked our first holiday party. This will be our ninth year out of ten (one year we were already booked) to play the swanky affair for Slagle Financial across the river there in Edwardsville, Ill.  Every year […]

Corporate Events With Class

opaa

So for a fifth time in six years, we got to play OPAA‘s big annual event Tuesday evening here in St. Louis (actually the last few years it’s been at the St. Charles Convention Center). They are a food service company servicing schools, and every year they bring in their sales team and vendors for […]

The Fundraiser: Return Engagement

It’s a “when it rain’s it pours” situation with a band like ours here in St. Louis. A few Fridays ago a musician friend asked how the band was doing, and I said that it was a bit slow. I should do that more often because before the sun set on that very February day, […]

Corporate Party — Setting the Tone

Last week for a fourth time a food management company hired us to play their annual party up in St. Charles. They bring their employees from the region in, have them go to some workshops, and later, there’s a nice dinner and some awards are presented.  In the middle of that they like the Kevin […]

The KM4 to Rock the AB Biergarden

AB Beer Garden

It’s always exciting for the band to get a new place to play — and so pleased that our good friends at Penny Moon Entertainment hooked us up with three gigs at the wonderful Anheuser Busch Brewery.  They opened a new Biergarden, and we’ll be playing their three dates this summer: June 22nd, July 20th, […]

“Thursday’s All So Sad”

It’s a stormy Thursday here in St. Louis, so I thought I’d put a video together of us doing that classic blues tune, “Stormy Monday.” Adhering to our “Four Martini Set List,” we typically bring this one out in the final set of the evening and whether it’s a corporate event or a swanky wedding, […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

VD Day Image

Today is also St. Louis’ 250th birthday!  At a special Burning Love festival, they are hoping they get as many couples as possible to get engaged. Will they break a record?  Maybe.  Will some of those couples want the KM4 to play at their wedding?  Most definitely!  And we very much look forward to it. […]

March Madness

Kevin warming up on a bar stool for tonight's rehearsal, circa 1968. (Takes me a while to warm up)

For a band like ours, the winter is a time to reflect, rejuvenate, and re-jive! We have the occasional gig, but are looking forward to spring weddings and summer at the wineries. So we spend these cold evenings working on some smokin’ new tunes to expand the repertoire and tighten some of the lesser-known tunes […]

Band History, Part 5 of 4

Mike in Action small

This month marks the second year Mike Schleicher has been drumming for us, and we’re mighty pleased about that!  While I’ve known Mike the least amount of time — didn’t know him before he auditioned for the band when we were in search for a better and … er … more stable drummer — we’ve […]
