The Wedding Party

sunset-44

What a great time the KM4 had Saturday night, where we played Kirkwood‘s swanky Sunset 44 Bistro. It was actually a wedding party – the lovely bride and groom got married last month in Colorado, but the family of the groom wanted to have a little celebration here for those who either couldn’t make it […]

What the Band Knows: How’s Your Place Sound?

No Playing on Stage

There are a lot of factors that go into a band sounding great versus merely good. For a band like ours, playing a lot of classier weddings and nicer corporate events, most are intangibles – how the individual members are feeling that day, whether or not they got sprinkled with Miles Davis Magic Fairy Dust, […]

Five Tips to Find The Right Band for Your Holiday Party

A great classy fun jazz band - just what your corporate holiday party needs?

It’s an unusually cool August week in St. Louis, so that must have people thinking about Corporate Christmas parties because The Kevin Mitchell 4 is suddenly getting a lot queries to play in December.

Add Music to Your Fundraiser

We see it over and over: nothing makes a fundraiser sizzle like a live band, and no type of band is more appropriate than a rockin’ jazz band. It doesn’t have to be us, but we love to be part of a good cause, and offer a  501(c)(3) discount. Just one example we’re proud of: […]

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 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, […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

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 […]

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.

Classy, Classy Weddings

Dave and Steve

The Fall keeps the Kevin Mitchell 4 busy! A couple of weeks ago we played the Third Degree Glass Factory for Justin and Rachel (check out what they said here). And then last Sunday we played the World Fair Pavilion in Forest Park for Anna and David.  Both were stunning, classy, fun events.  Anna came […]
