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, […]

St. Louis Wedding on a Budget

St. Louis Wedding for a Typical Couple

This is the start of an ongoing series I’m going to call “What the Band Knows.” As you plan your wedding in the St. Louis metro area, you are no doubt thinking back to all the weddings you’ve been to as a guest.  But those of us who “work” weddings, have a different perspective …. […]

Hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas — the band has had a great year and a great month with lots of opportunity to play Christmas and Holiday party and events.  It’s fun to revisit these songs every year — here’s video of us playing a tune about a certain snowman while playing on the […]

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 […]

KEEN shot

We are honored to get to be part of the KEEN annual fundraisers.  They are a class act with amazing people like Dave leading a group of talented folks for a good cause. (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now — gets less-abled kids up and moving.) This month they had their big to-do and raised a whopping […]

What the Band Knows ….

I just saw this article, and it made me smile.  They went and talked to caterers, wedding planners, DJs, and bands about when they can tell when a wedding isn’t going to last, coming up with a list titled “Wedding-Planning Pros Reveal 10 Signs a Marriage Will Fail.” Now luckily, we’ve only had good experiences.

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, […]

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 […]
