Winery Season!

It’s a February evening here in 2017, and sure the weather is crazy warm (70?), but I assure you I’d still be thinking about St. Louis Wineries anyway. This is the time of the year when we start booking wineries and general fun summer outdoor gigs (like one of our favorites, Eckert‘s). We’re a swingin’ […]

You Can’t Spell “Fun” Without “K-M-4”

Actually you technically can, but we’re F-U-N, and for sure you can’t spell “Fundraiser” without fun! Packing up for a bit of a road trip today as we head out to Morthland College over in West Franklin, Illinois. They are having a big fundraiser tonight and we are honored to be part of it (we […]

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 […]

A Swingin’ New Year’s Eve

Gatesworth in Clayton

Just unpacked from an absolute terrific time at the Gatesworth. We got to play their New Year’s Eve gala, and it was a great time. We’ve gotten to play their a couple of times, but never for their NYE Party. First of all, we can’t say enough how great this place is.  Kathy, who runs […]

A Party to Yelp! About

So I don’t do this very often for a variety of reasons — mostly because it’s usually just not as fun — but last night a smaller version of our band played a very special Yelp! event. And man was it fun. We were called on for an instrumental trio for 2-1/2 hours for their […]

Weddings Makes for Friends

KM4 at Brewery

Setting up for one of three gigs this summer at the Biergarten at the Anheuser-Busch brewery, I got the biggest thrill: I looked up and there greeting me with big smiles was Ajay and Elizabeth.  We had the honor of being part of their immensely special wedding last year, and while then they lived out […]

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. […]

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 […]

Summer is Near!

Kev Barb and Steve at New Town

… or so it seems!  While Jan/Feb tends to be quiet for bands, it’s actually hopping with activity making plans for spring/summer/fall public events.  The KM4 is talking to wineries, local communities having fun public events, and those planning their festivals.  This is all in addition to booking great local bars.  Keep your eyes soon […]

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 […]
