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, […]

Keeping it Fresh

The late winter is a good time for the band.  We have some nice weddings typically, but we also have a bit of space in the schedule.  And that means it’s time to add some new tunes to the set list! Now we actually learn songs all through the year — in fact, we always […]

Never Too Late …

… to add a great St. Louis jazz band to your event! We got a typical query the other day for a wedding — but it could have just as easily been for a 50th Anniversary or a 70th Birthday party. What as “typical” [for us!] was that it was “short notice.”  Someone asked us […]

Wedding Season

Between Christmas and just after Valentine’s Day, I think we get the most queries for weddings.  Folks like to get engaged at Christmas (I actually asked my beloved to marry me on her birthday … and thus got out of giving her a present beyond the ring ;).  And Valentine’s Day … well that’s obvious.

Love — or anything good — does not happen without risk taking. Elizabeth — daughter of a preacher from middle Missouri — said yes to  Ajay — born in India — via eharmony. They then made plans to marry. Happily they wanted a classy jazz band. So inquiries ended up in the KM4 email box. […]

Weddings: Not About Us!

PIS-3

It’s a good friend’s anniversary, and I’m thinking back on their wedding, which was beautiful.  As you can imagine, seeing as many weddings as I do both personally and professionally, I notice things!  The bride and groom looked great, the ceremony was in an old church that was beautiful, and the reception hall was really […]

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 […]
