WHO WE ARE

"We are a live piano and DJ company specializing in both beautiful pop and jazz piano music, and high-energy DJ music for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, receptions, memorials, funerals, corporate events, and private functions - all at a sensible price.

We pride ourselves on having a trendy and modern song list that is never cheesy, and focuses on what YOU want, as well as on either touching your guests heartstrings, or getting them on the dance floor, depending on the event.

With us, you'll get one of the best musicians on the west coast, playing your favorite music.

Where we play: mostly in Portland, Salem, Eugene, Vancouver, and Seattle, but we will travel anywhere if we can work out the details.

Don't settle for mediocrity on your special day. Hire the best."

- Kit Taylor, founder + musician
