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 Mark B.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 6, 2018From New York City, NY

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:

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!

WeddingReviewed on September 23, 2017From Skippack, PA

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

WeddingReviewed on November 5, 2016From East Setauket, NY

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!!

Peter and the Master Keys:

Thank you! You and your friends really know how to have a good time. We felt inspired!
