About
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

Good music makes the difference between a normal wedding and an unforgettable wedding. From our first conversation to the last note that the band played, they were truly unforgettable. The first time we talked, Peter told me that his goal was to get everyone dancing, from the youngest to the oldest. All I can say is that all of my nephews spent the entire night on the floor and the grandmother of the bride got up to share a special moment dancing with her grand-daughter. They were nothing short of outstanding, and I can't speak highly enough about them. If you want a group that is talented, easy to work with, and care about their client, then look no further!

Peter and the Master Keys’s Response:

Thank you for the kind words, Mark. It was such a joy to play for all of you and I’m also glad that you asked me to learn “Sea Cruise”. I’ll keep that in the book!

Peter, along with all the incredible musicians in the band were amazing in every aspect. Before the wedding Peter and I worked through a variety of details and music ideas to create the night we imagined. With complete professionalism, they were on time, set up quick and each band member we met was truly a joy and excited to be there. This came through in the music. Once the party started we danced all night. I had a steady stream of people telling me how incredible the band is and asking ,"where did you find these guys?" Barb and I had an amazing time and Peter and the band felt like friends that night. and their cool factor is 100. Your new fans. Barb and Alan

Honestly can't say enough about how great these guys are. Peter Maness was super professional and easy to deal with and found the whole band to be extremely talented and very friendly :) most importantly for us though, they really played 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!!

We booked Peter and the Master Keys to play at our beer hall Sunday afternoon wedding. The process from beginning to end was wonderful. All throughout Peter made an effort to be as accommodating as possible to all our requests and answer our many questions. On the day of the event they were very professional, arrived on time, dressed for the occasion, and ensured a great sound balance. The performance was amazing, our guests continue raving about the great music. The music set included low-key pieces for cocktail hour and continued with an upbeat set which got everyone dancing. We are so happy to have had them at our event, they were just fantastic.

Peter and the Masterkeys was an unbelievable hit. The Jazz style Blues was so well done. The musicianship of each player was spot on. We all felt like we went to a private concert and were all VIP’s. Peter was professional, on time, worked with the crowd and was easy to work with. I would recommend him for any affair. Our guest loved him and all were tapping feet and dancing all night long. I am so happy I found Pete on Gigmasters. He was even better in person than seen in his videos. I hope to use him again next year for the same event. No one will be disappointed! What a great find!

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.

Peter and the band were the 3rd act for my husbands 60th birthday party and they were brilliant. They came in and claimed the stage and brought the party fun up several notches. They are a talented group of musicians and super stylish performers. I would have them back anytime and recommend them 100%. Our friends and family are still talking about the event.

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!
