About
My music covers pop, theater and classic songs from Scott Joplin to James Taylor, Gershwin to Stephen Sondheim, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Michael Buble and beyond in a style I call intimate jazz cabaret. I have come to specialize in intimate family events, receptions, fundraisers, private benefits and corporate events in NYC and the surrounding region, often at the finest hotels and private clubs: The Waldorf-Astoria, The Plaza, The 21 Club, The New York Hilton, the Yale Club, the Harvard Club, the Lotos Club, and many private residences. I love to lead sing-along (with personalized lyric books that I assemble for the guests)! And another of my specialties is holiday parties, often sing-alongs. In addition I am the Music Director and Conductor of the St John's University student chorus and the St Thomas More Church Choir in New York. I play weddings regularly.

As a composer I am a two-time Emmy Award winner, two-time Richard Rodgers Award Winner, recipient of the BMI Jerry Bock Award and the BMI Harrington Award for Sustained Creative Achievement.

It is a special honor often to be a part of personal and family milestone events in my clients' lives. Please have a look at my many reviews, all 5-star.

Happy partying!

I cannot even put into words how pleased we were with Mr. Oler. He is totally professional, called prior to our event to confirm all special song choices we wanted for the anniversary party, arrived early to set up, worked with my daughter to review the songs she wanted to sing with his accompaniment, was dressed very appropriately and was truly talented. His song selections for the 50th anniversary party were just so spot on for the crowd! His themed medleys were terrific too. Everyone loved him and his music added so much to the success of the event. I highly recommend Kim and would definitely use him again. 5 star rating for Kim!

Kim is a perfect gentlemen and a talented entertainer. I sent him four pages of sample songs our group might like to hear and he came prepared to do just about all of them. He added complimentary songs for the same genres. Kim had a perfect feel for the ebb and flow of the event. He knew when to play, what the volume should be and when to stop. His breaks were perfectly timed and more than appropriate for the amount of time he played. Kim was easy to deal with regarding the event planning and "got it" right away. He has an easy and smooth style and personifies class. You can't go wrong with Kim Oler and I would definitely suggest him to anyone. Bob

From the beginning, Kim was terrific. He accepted my song list, and sent me a list of his own, from which I selected a dozen or so additional numbers. He arrived before the party began, and played beautifully. Several guests complimented his playing and the song selection. I am grateful that we found each other, because he mad a significant contribution to my engagement party for my daughter.

Really great to deal with, came up with some ideas on his own which were very warmly received by our guests, went out of the way to understand our needs/likes and played accordingly. On time, dressed very professionally, very articulate - we urge you to speak with him - he's great.

Kim made our Christmas party a very special event. He brought copies of carols for my guests. Kim has an amazing ear for music, and accompanied my group of singers with great professionalism. He also performed his own compositions which delighted my guests. Kims warm personality and easy going style make him a performer you want back again. I highly recommend him for any party.
