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 […]

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 […]

Classy Birthday

IMG_3154

I can’t tell you how grateful I am that the classiest people book us. What a great night. Dan wanted to surprise his S.O. with a birthday party, and hired us to be part of it. Beautiful place, totally fun people, but I digress. Condo in Clayton, and when Mike walked in, as Dan tells […]

A Private Affair …

Make your party truly memorable - hire a band.

I say this to everyone who calls about us performing at their birthday party, anniversary party, or summer fling: it doesn’t have to be us, but no one ever regrets having live music at their event! There’s something special about walking in and seeing live musicians jammin’ away. I see it party goers faces wherever […]

It’s Always “Just In Time” …

… for live music! 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 40th Birthday party in a private home. What as “typical” [for us!] was that it was “short notice.”  Someone asked us less than six weeks […]

Thinkin’ Summer Time

… the song that is. Sure, St. Louis got hit with four inches of wet heavy white stuff today, but as we’re booking for spring/summer/fall outdoor events, we’re thinking of that time in the not too distant future when we’re wearing sleeveless shirts – pants optional. Which brings to mind a fan favorite, our version […]

Tina Hassler (vocals) & Kevin Mitchell (piano/guitar)

“I’ve been coming to these [holiday parties] for 21 years, and you guys are absolutely the best band we’ve had at this thing,” said Ben, a Price Waterhouse Cooper executive, during one of our breaks. It was high praise – and this was a really fun, classy holiday party. It was at the Four Seasons […]

It’ll be no surprise to anyone who has seen us (or even heard our recordings) that we absolutely love playing. We love the music, we love contributing to a good time, and we love the smiles it brings people. What could be even better? When we play your St. Louis charity event. It’s all of […]

A Trio Version of the 4

KM4 Jazz Trio

I really love my band, and like playing with a group featuring a singer. So I don’t often go out as an instrumental trio, but I have to say, it is a lot of fun when the opportunity arises.  Recently we got a call from Yelp! for a return engagement. Last year they had a […]
