"I would strongly recommend this highly talented and versatile band. We were seeking a band with a background in jazz of many varieties and they complimented our Artist/Wine Tasting Event very well and in high style."

"Honestly can't say enough about how great these guys are. Peter was super professional and easy to deal with. We found the whole band to be extremely talented and very friendly. Most importantly for us though, they really played a fun and energetic show that had all our guests up and dancing immediately. Everyone had a blast and are still telling me how much they enjoyed our band. Our wedding music was really important to us, so I'm happy to say that these guys knocked it out of the park. Thanks a ton!"

"I give The Master Keys five stars for a superb performance that well exceeded my admittedly high expectations. This band is one of incredibly professional, experienced musicians. I personally loved their blend of jazz and blues, which was a lot of fun to groove and to dance to, but was also at times very soulful and moving. They were a great hit with my guests, who danced the evening away to their music. And they were very professional - arrived on time, ready to play (and all looking very good, I have to note), and their bandleader Peter was a breeze to communicate with. I will, without hesitation, hire this band again for future events. I highly recommend them!"

"Peter and the Master Keys did a fantastic job at our Christmas party! I will definitely be calling them again to play at our next event. Everybody absolutely loved them and were complimenting me on my choice of band and music all night. These guys are the real deal - they seem to swing from jazz to blues and soul effortlessly (throwing a few fun holiday classics in there as well) and made our guests sway and dance all through the party. Afterwards the band got invited to play at a few more Christmas parties... and I understand why. They're a hit! Great singing, great playing, great vibe, professional and classy. Highly recommended."

- Ian J., New York City, NY 12/10/2016 (Gigmasters)

"My husband and I are huge jazz and blues fans! We have many good memories attached to the music, so I have to admit I was a bit nervous to making the right choice for our wedding band but, Peter and The Master Keys were everything we could have hoped for! They had ALL of the guests up and dancing and played classics from Ray Charles to Chuck Berry. Peter was professional, kind, and worked with us on our budget which was really helpful! Such a fun, talented group of musicians with tons of energy! A very memorable part of our special day... Thanks Peter!"

"What a lovely (and lively) band! I couldn't have been happier with my choice of booking Peter and the Master Keys for my big day. Not only are the musicians extremely talented, but also their spirit is so high and it totally matched (and elevated) the happiness of the evening. Thanks to Peter and his bandmates for being so fun and getting everyone onto the dance floor!"

- Amelia S. 10/27/2016 (The Knot)

"I am so, so incredibly happy that I had Peter and the Master Keys play at my wedding. They were absolutely fantastic!!! Leading up to the wedding Peter made communication and planning a breeze for us. He and the rest of his band are all professional, amazingly talented musicians who have great, positive energy and obviously care a lot about quality. They sounded sooooo good and played music that everyone - from my friends and cousins to my parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents - LOVED. The mix of jazz, RnB, soul and dance-y blues they played - with piano and saxophones and trumpet!!! - was so much fun it got EVERYBODY dancing. I give Peter and the Master Keys five stars and recommend them without hesitation. My wedding wouldn't have been the same without them."
