Patrice,
Thank you so much for everything on Saturday! You and the rest of the band were phenomenal and exceeded our expectations. Many people said you were the best wedding band they have ever heard and I couldn't agree more. You brought energy and fun!
Thank you again,
Morgan DiSantoRanney & Will Rydell, 12/09/23


Keynote was incredible! I can’t imagine another band performing at our wedding. They sounded amazing all night long and had all of our guests glued to the dance floor! I can’t say enough great things about them. I want to plan another event just to have an excuse to book them again!
Nick, Groom


Keynote helped to make our wedding truly perfect. Keynote, the band for the reception, surpassed all of our expectations easily. Our first song and father/daughter dance were performed live and were very special moments. After dinner, Keynote got the party going and it DID NOT stop until it was time to leave. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night! They simply are an amazing band with incredible energy and obviously love to perform. If you’re looking for a band to reallly kick off your reception and keep it going the whole night, go with Keynote!
Emily, Bride


Alice married on 05/14/2022:
We absolutely LOVED Keynote!!!! Our guests were dancing the whole time, which is what we wanted and the reason we hired a band. ALL of our guests raved about Keynote and how fabulous they were!! A few guests didn't even realize we had a band until they saw them (that is how good Keynote is!!!) We had an absolutely blast and we LOVED the range of song selections Keynote picked. Our parents' friends loved that Keynote played old school songs but that those songs were still fun enough for our friends (younger crowd) could still enjoy. :)


Jack K. married on 12/31/2022:
Excellent band for any event or special occasion.
I highly recommend KeyNote as a band for any party or event! They are a fantastic band with great energy. We hired them for our NYE wedding celebration and could not have asked for more. They were extremely talented and had a great song selection. Definitely choose KeyNote for a memorable experience!!


Keynote was the perfect band for our wedding. From the communication, professionalism, and positivity at the beginning with Josh, to the last minute changes (like us forgetting to submit the mothergroom, fatherdaughter dances until a few days before), to the nonstop perfect show into the evening, we honestly could not have been happier with Keynote and we are certain guests felt the same. We had our wedding at a unique location and the band seamlessly made it work and helped to create the perfect, nonstop fun environment that we were aiming for – we highly recommend and encourage all to hire Keynote asap!!!
Andrew Smith, Groom


Justin S. married on 06/03/2022

We recently had Keynote band perform at our wedding and they impressed everyone. The communication prior to wedding was very professional and all questions answered. We literally could have not chosen a better band. Patrice, lead singer, engaged on dance floor with guest and really got the party going!! All of our guest said they were the best band and have not danced so much at a wedding!! I highly recommend hiring Keynote because they truly got the party started!!

I had Keynote perform at my wedding on Saturday night. They absolutely stole the show! Not only were they all incredibly talented, but they were engaging with our guests – from the lead singer to the sax player. They played a great mix of songs for both the older and younger crowd and created a fun, energetic atmosphere. Would highly recommend Keynote to anyone!

Subject: Amazing Band!

Keynote absolutely rocked our wedding reception! The band was a huge hit. We had guests come up to us during and after our wedding, raving about them! They really engaged the crowd and kept everyone dancing until the last shuttle left. In addition to the amazing reception, Josh, the band leader, also played the guitar beautifully as we walked down the aisle during the ceremony. He learned a couple new songs, of which we are so grateful for. They truly helped make the wedding a seamless and memorable experience!

Everyone can’t stop raving about the band! Josh was great, and super helpful, and everyone had an amazing time.Their sound volume was great as was their song selection. Also their appearance and personality was very professional and Josh was very cooperative.


Kiersten married on 9/22/2018:
Keynote was UNBELIEVEABLE at our September wedding. They were very professional and responsive, and didn’t need too much direction from me (a flustered bride) or our venue. We had about 200 guests and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM was out on the dance floor all night long!!!!! The band went with our (odd and specific) recommendations, and really customized their set list so it felt personal to us as a couple. The lead singer was simply fantastic! She would come into the middle of the dance floor, engage our guests, and kept the party rocking all night. We are still receiving compliments about how much fun everyone had which is exactly what we wanted!



Dayana married on 06/23/2018:
I would definitely recommend Keynote to everyone I know, they did a great job at helping us figure out exactly what we needed for our wedding as they provided the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and made sure to answer all of our questions in a timely manner. Keynote played at our reception and they did a FANTASTIC job!!! Our guest absolutely loved them!! Not only did they sound great but they also interacted with the crowed as they performed which everyone LOVED!! We got so many complements. When the band took breaks they had great songs playing to keep the party going and when a few of our guest requested Latin music they were able to find a mix they put together for a another event and play that for everyone which everyone LOVED!! I am so happy we were able to get them for our wedding and like I said I would recommend them to everyone!!
