Keys of Joy provides Piano, Vocals, Guitar, and DJ Services specializing primarily in wedding celebration. Well known throughout the Atlanta area as a provider in cultural selections as well as pleasant coffee-shop style music, Keys of Joy works hard to provide a unique experience at every event that we attend.
Who are we? Keys of Joy was founded by Ben Adams who played piano since the age of six years old. Mitou Charles joined as lead singer and shares Ben's passion in music and educating those around her in the true gift of music.
Please let us be a part of your special event. We would love to make your occasion a truly memorable event with the gift of our music.
I used Ben's services for my daughter's wedding. We were very short on time and had very little time to rehearse. Because I only contacted him 2weeks before the wedding. He devised a creative way for us to rehearse and communicate to make this transition smooth. Tlhe day of the event he was at least an hour early maybe 2. he conducted himself very professionally and performance was superb thank you so much for your services it was wonderful working with you

Ben was awesome!
Ben played the keyboard and piano for my March 2013 wedding and he was great! I really appreciate his professionalism and flexibility. I contacted Ben, told him what I needed and he gave me a great price. He was present for the rehearsal and wedding. He even showed up early to work with my soloist to make sure the music was right.
I will definitely call Ben when I need a pianist and I will recommend him to anyone looking to have a great musical experience for their event.
Whether it is sitting down and listening to the melodies from the piano or if it is waltzing on the dance floor to the latest tunes, you can expect to be entertained. Mitou lights up the dance floors with the sounds of her voice. She also can teach Salsa as well as many other Caribbean flavors. Watch out, she is not only talented with her voice!! In the mean-time, you will either find Ben by the piano or behind a set of turn-tables keeping the party going.
Additional Booking Notes
I do have my own Full-Size keyboard, 800 Watt Sound System, 150 Watt Monitor System 8 Channel Mixer, 24 Channel Mixer, Wireless Lapel Mic, Wireless Handheld Mic, and Wireless Headset Mic. We also have a single in-ear monitor system.

Started in 2004, Keys of Joy was started as a wedding piano service. Today, Keys of Joy provides services from videography to DJ to Wedding vocals in events throughout Atlanta. With the lovely voice of Mitou Charles and the talented hands of Ben Adams, Keys of Joy takes pride in the ability to bring smiles to the hearts and faces of Atlanta and the greater South-East.
BEN ADAMS ~ "I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old. Starting out on my Mom's accordion, I received professional music lessons on trumpet during the sixth grade, but piano and guitar have been my passions. In my musical history, I have played with Moe Better Blues, Seven 7 Band, Riverside Praise Team, The Liberty Band, and several churches."
"Recently, I have been concentrating more on weddings and special events as well as giving piano lessons. I play primarily by ear, but I am able to read music to learn new pieces."
MITOU CHARLES ~ "I started singing when I was six years old. Through the encouragement of friends and family, I have carried this passion through life and enjoy sharing it with others. Nothing brings greater pleasure than to know that my voice brought a smile to a weary day or a spring into the bride's step. Music is truly my passion!!"
"My goal is to record and continue writing and producing music. However, I never want to lose my passion for sharing my music in live settings."
Keys of Joy also provides Wedding Reception and Special Event DJ Services. We have a vast collection of tasteful music on our computer and can provide background music for most events. I can also serve as the Wedding Announcer for the reception or Father/Daughter dance as needed.
Our musical influences are too many to name, but we favor Acoustic, Reggae, Jazz, and Blues. Since we are able to play by ear or by notes, we have flexibility and can play most requests given. Be sure to check out the Audio Samples page and listen to Hero to hear a sample of our singing. You can also check us out on YouTube as well.

Pianist, Guitarist, Background Singer, Solo Singer
