Who We Are

The Keynotes is a modern-day, four-piece wedding & events band that’s as comfortable with the classics and oldies as they are with the latest chart-topping hits. Everything from Elvis Presley to Ed Sheeran and everything in between, we have you covered with an amazing night of great dance floor fillers. Your friends and family will rave about us for years to come. You only have to read a few of our client reviews to get a sense of the quality that we provide. Not only in our performance and live-show, but in our attitude towards being a great partner. One that will bend over backwards to help you plan an incredible day that’s everything you ever dreamed of.


Intro Title

THE BAND


We’re truly experienced wedding performers, capable of delivering a expansive range of live music. Our repertoire is ever growing and includes a wide selection of modern and classic songs. We cater our performance to your needs and are happy to take song requests in advance. We regularly provide music for ceremonies, first dances and dinner/drinks and so on, but always tailor the services to fit with your exact needs.

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.

THE PERKS OF HIRING A LIVE BAND FOR YOUR WEDDING

Whether you need some soft acoustic melodies in the background to create the perfect ambience as you walk down the aisle, or a vivacious sound that will loosen up, and energize the crowd at reception & dance party, a live band is the perfect way to set the mood for your wedding in the GTA.


BENEFITS OF HIRING A LIVE BAND FOR YOUR WEDDING

Nobody plans a wedding looking to make it boring, and forgetful. Couples pour hours of their time and energy into making their wedding into something everyone who attends will appreciate. A good wedding band can make your wedding into one that is unforgettable, with guests talking about it for years to come. A good wedding band will make your event truly stand out by offering:
Authentic sound​ – the band is right there, playing in front of your eyes, creating a genuine sound for your wedding guests to enjoy.

Live Entertainment​ – No need to hire anybody else to entertain your guests, as a live band accomplishes both tasks; providing music, and entertainment to enjoy.

Wide Repertoire ​– A wedding band will usually have quite the ​large repertoire/song list ​in order to cater to the many tastes of their clients. That means that they can go from playing the Beatles to Bruno Mars in a heartbeat - so that you can please everyone involved.

Amplifies Atmosphere​ – A live band will enrich the atmosphere of your wedding, making it an event your guests will remember and talk about for weeks to come.

Encourage Booty Shaking ​– People are at your wedding to let loose and bust a move. A good wedding band will know exactly how to keep the dance floor bumping with the right songs at the right time.

    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!!

    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!
