About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Peter & the Master Keys is NYC's favorite seven-piece jazz and blues band for weddings and events! Specializing in American jazz and blues from the 30's through 50's (with a dash of rock n' roll thrown into the mix), Peter & the Master Keys is the perfect blend of cool sophistication and rootsy soul. Our music pays homage to an earlier era of live music when real musicians played real instruments. With three horns (trumpet, tenor sax, baritone sax) and a robust rhythm section (keys, guitar, upright bass, drums), you might even call us a “small” big band! Whether you need music for a mellow cocktail hour or a high-energy dance party—or maybe even both—Peter & the Master Keys fits the bill. Throughout New York City and beyond, we've played countless weddings, events, private parties, and concerts at venues ranging from the prestigious Yale Club and Sotheby's in Manhattan to rural barns in upstate New York. So if you're looking to liven up your next party or event with the most swingin' band around, look no further than Peter & the Master Keys. The Master Keys have had the privilege of working with many great clients over the past few years including: Columbia University, the Yale Club, Sotheby's, Etsy, Tao, as well as countless brides and grooms. We love to elevate events as only live music can whether it be for ambience or for dancing. I look forward to working with you and making live music the most effortless and enjoyable part of your celebration. - Peter Maness ***The Master Keys can provide emcee duties and you are welcome to use our sound system for speeches and toasts. ***Sound and lighting can be included. ***We are also happy to provide proof of insurance to meet your venue's requirements.

Review by Lisa L.

WeddingReviewed on November 8, 2022From Saugerties, NY

Peter and his team of incredible musicians set the tone/foundation for our evening. In addition to being an accomplished musician and crooner, Peter is also a pleasure to work with – he was always timely and responsive to us and worked with us on what we should play for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He is open to suggestions – his team played a rocking Hora to incorporate my Jewish heritage and was enthusiastic in speaking with my fiancé about songs he really wanted to hear on our special day. When Peter and team were playing their final set, they brought the house down - the saxophonist, even slid across the floor to play in front of my husband!

Peter and the Master Keys:

Thank you, Lisa! It was a real honor to play for you and create a fun and warm vibe for your families. I'm so glad we got your guests up and dancing- it really fills me with joy to see the evening end on a high note like that! All the best! Peter

Thanks so much, Stephanie! We loved playing for you, Jim and your families. You have such great energy and it was really apparent on the dance floor! I'll have to learn that Irish song- that was a lot of fun! All the best, Peter
