My wife and I used the Keynotes for our wedding reception and they were a massive hit. The crowd was literally chanting "one more song...one more song...one more song" when they finished and the band caved to the pressure and graced the crowd with 3 encore numbers. I cannot remember a wedding where the audience was chanting for an encore.
BUT, the Keynotes were THAT GOOD!
The overall experience with the guys was incredible. They were responsive and professional throughout the process--making it very easy to get everything set up. On the big day they were early and got set up with lots of time before guests arrived. Then, they played an incredible set of songs over 3 hours, including being cool enough to play an encore.
These guys are not some cheesy wedding band that tries to appeal to everyone and therefore appeals to no one. They are an actual band putting on a performance and a darn good one!
If you're thinking about using these guys, just do it. Stop thinking. Go plan the rest of your wedding and do your future self the favor of lining them up right now.
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!
Holly Acheson & Cole Henry - Wedding, Shelburne, Ontario
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!
Tammy Vertkas - 50th Party
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!)
Bear Estate, Collingwood - Wedding Reception
The Keynotes 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!
