OUR SECRET WEAPON
What is our secret weapon you ask? It’s our amazingly talented front-man, Peter. Compare a hundred different wedding bands side-by-side and you will not find a more talented singer or a more naturally gifted entertainer anywhere. It’s a bold statement, for sure, but it’s also the truth. From the start of every show as we prepare to launch our first song of the night, we see the expressions on people’s faces. Largely curious, as everyone wonders who is this band? What are we in for? Then the minute the first few lines are sung, faces all around the room light up and it’s beaming smiles everywhere. It’s truly magical and this is what you get with The Keynotes.

WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING
Excellent Performance for our Wedding We booked the Keynotes to play our wedding and could not have been happier with the professional service they provided. They went above and beyond what we had originally hired them to do. We received a lot of feedback from our guests, and the overwhelming consensus was that our guests loved the music! The Keynotes did a wonderful job! Highly recommended!
The Keynotes absolutely rocked the joint at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. Everyone at the reception enjoyed themselves and raved about what a wonderful time they had. They were very accommodating and professional. Peter did a masterful job as soloist for the wedding ceremony itself and then joined Rich and the others for a tremendous show at the reception. From mid-afternoon to the wee hours of the morning, they infused energy into the whole day. Well done, gentlemen. I would highly recommend you to anyone hosting an event
Best Band Ever!! Thank you Keynotes for making my husband’s 50th surprise party the best party ever!! From my first phone call with Rich, to the very last note played late into the night, you guys surpassed every expectation I had. Professional, fun, great with our guests and you sounded absolutely fantastic!! The music just kept getting better and better. I have never enjoyed a band at a private function that much. You would not believe how many emails I have received from our guests since Saturday night just raving about you guys. I will have to find another reason to have a party just to hire you again. Thank you for everything!!! Every person there had just an amazing time…..especially the birthday boy!! You guys truly are fantastic!!
Hands down the best cover band I've witnessed! You guys ROCKED THE WINERY last night!!!! Everyone couldn't stop talking about how amazing you guys were and seriously you guys were beyond amazing! Words can't even describe! Thank you for the two beautiful songs that I requested. I loved them! Craig and I are so happy we selected you guys to play for us at our wedding! Can't wait to see you guys again next time we're in town! Hopefully at a bar! Or maybe even at a friend's wedding?!?! (Cause I'm totally telling everyone about you guys!)
The Key Notes were the band at a wedding we attended and they were awesome. The dance floor was packed. They have an amazing song list with something for everyone. They are super talented and they are so much fun. I'd book these guys for any occasion where you want the guests to sing, dance and have fun. Can't wait to see them again.
Best Wedding Band of All Time We saw The Keynotes at my sister in-law's wedding in 2016. We knew then that they were something special. I've heard bands at weddings before and found that they can sound like a typical rock band where all the songs sound similar. This could not be more different from The Keynotes. They play so many different genres and transition between songs so smoothly. As soon as we got engaged, step 1 was lock down a venue, step 2 was immediately book The Keynotes. Our guests have been commenting for weeks that it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to and it was largely due to the band. They literally made our wedding and we now have a long list of friends and family that want to book this band for their events. We also used The Keynotes for an accoustic set during our wedding ceremony and it was absolutely beautiful. You will not be disappointed with them, they are absolutely fantastic!
