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 […]

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, […]

Best of Both Worlds

When the four of us played a wedding at the Bissinger's Carmel Room.

Two disclaimers: This idea isn’t financially feasible for many; second, this is what Lauren and I did for our wedding nearly 16 years ago. When anyone is planning a wedding reception, there’s almost always this debate: live band or DJ? To oversimplify the argument, one is often less expensive and offers more variety (Artie Shaw! […]

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, […]

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 […]

We Took a Chance On Love

Love — or anything good — does not happen without risk taking. Elizabeth — daughter of a preacher from middle Missouri — said yes to  Ajay — born in India — via eharmony. They then made plans to marry. Happily they wanted a classy jazz band. So inquiries ended up in the KM4 email box. […]

Weddings: Not About Us!

PIS-3

It’s a good friend’s anniversary, and I’m thinking back on their wedding, which was beautiful.  As you can imagine, seeing as many weddings as I do both personally and professionally, I notice things!  The bride and groom looked great, the ceremony was in an old church that was beautiful, and the reception hall was really […]
