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 […]

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 […]

“So Much Positive Energy”

Got an amazing note from a St. Louis bride the Monday after playing the cocktail hour of a Saturday wedding … it went something like this: We LOVED having your jazz trio play during our cocktail hour! The minute Michael and I walked in, there was so much positive energy in the air that started […]

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 […]

That Christmas Engagement

When I decided to ask my wife to marry me, I chose to do it on her birthday. See, I was being practical … when you present her with a nice rock, you’re totally off the hook for any other present! So I’m always impressed with other guys who propose on someone’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, […]

What the Band Knows … Part II

Joe & Chris keepin' the rhythm.

When your band is playing your event you’re (hopefully) listening to the band. But sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the band even before your event … and I don’t mean going to check out a performance first. This is second in a series where I suggest that the experienced St. Louis band […]

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 […]
