Who is Kahootz?

Started over ten years ago, the Kahootz band is Boston’s premier party band. Foremost we are a high-energy dance band adaptable to any style event, whether a fundraiser, a corporate event, or a private affair such as a wedding reception. We come recommended by most major hotels in New England and are considered one of the top cover bands capable of performing every popular dance style from every era. Our fresh and unique approach to every affair we play is one of the many characteristics that set us apart from other bands. We achieve this by working closely with our clients to ensure they get the best party experience possible.

The Kahootz band is a nine-member rehearsed unit; therefore, the band you hire is the band you get. The group features one female and two male lead singers in addition to a four-member rhythm section of keyboards, drums, guitar, bass, and two horns: saxophone and trumpet. Among the musicians, two also sing lead, which gives the band five lead singers in all.

Why Kahootz?

We want your affair to be the best it can be. We take the time to meet with clients in person to go through all the details to make sure we get it right.

We bring the best gear. Static, feedback, and sonic dirt are the main reasons a band seems too loud. We’ve invested in premiere equipment to ensure we never have an issue regarding volume. We can work any size space for any size party.

Well, we’re just fun. We love what we do - and it shows.

We strive for an authentic sound. We’re not going to change your favorite song’s sound. Therefore not only are your guests going to dance to songs they recognize, but they’re also going to be exceptionally excited to hear those songs replicated by a stellar band.

No one plays a broader range of music than us. And we learn up to two songs for every affair we perform.

There is no substitute for experience. We’ve created amazing parties at over fifteen hundred private affairs.

We’re pros. We know the proper etiquette to handle ourselves at the finest hotels and venues. We work with the people at your venue to make your affair seamless.

We’re insured. We carry over a million dollars in liability insurance.

We are consistent. Each band is a rehearsed unit that sounds consistently excellent at every performance.

We understand this is about you, not about us. We don’t work with canned, generic playlists from the night before. Instead, we take a fresh approach to every affair we play based on your tastes and sensibilities.

We’re in the business of creating raving fans. Please look at independent websites like Wedding Wire and The Knot for reviews of the outstanding work we’ve done for others. We would love to create that same kind of party for you!

Kahootz Band Frequently Asked Questions

Are you willing to meet with us before our event/wedding.

Yes. We do detail meetings 10 days before a client’s affair. Most clients prefer to meet in person and I make every effort to accommodate that. Sometimes due to time, distance or people being to darn busy we do it over the phone. Whatever is best for you.

Will you learn any music for us?

Happy to. We’ll learn up to two songs not on the current song lists.

Can we send you a specific list of songs we want you to play?

Let me start by saying the more information we have the better performance we will do for you and your guests. Hopefully we’ll have time to meet before the wedding. Detail meetings happen 10 days before the affair and my preference is we do it in person.

At the end of the meeting I’ll ask you to give me five songs, artists or genres that you are horrified at being a part of your celebration. After that I ask that you tell us five songs artists or genres that you’re looking forward to being a part of the evening. At that point we ask that you trust that we’ll read the crowd and create a great event

How much space do you need for the band?

What is ideal is a width of 22 feet with a depth of 12 feet. We rarely get ideal unless we’re at one of the hotels. We’ll do everything we can to work with the space you have.

We have a smaller sized wedding and our location is intimate. Will you cut the band down is size?

We regularly do smaller sized affairs – we even did a surprise birthday party in Vermont for 19 people once! But we don’t cut the size down. We want your event to be incredible and we need our whole team to make that happen. One thing to know is because we use a state of the art sound system with in ear monitors for the singers we take up less room than most bands our size. The real downfall of cutting the band down in size is that you also cut down on the breath of material we do.

Do you carry liability Insurance? The place we’re having our wedding says all our vendors need to carry it.

Absolutely. Over a million dollars worth.

Is it inappropriate or disrespectful to you guys if we ask that our first dance be played by CD?

Not at all. Often clients who have been taking dance lessons (groom’s take note: I’m NOT advocating this – ha ha ) choose to do their routine to CD because they’ve been practicing to it.

Can we borrow a mic for our ceremony?

At your ceremony all your guests will want to be able to hear your vows, the officiant’s words and your reader's prose.  We offer a special system that does help to make sure everything can be heard.  A satellite sound system for ceremony will include a microphone for your officiant, a microphone that will sit low on the groom’s or partner’s lapel or dress so it’s inconspicuous and a third microphone for any readers you may have.  If your guest count is over seventy-five we strongly suggest this.  The system is a rental.  We pick it up, set it up, test it, break it down and return it to the rental house.
