Bill and Kari (known as Band K) can provide anything from an acoustic guitar and piano act to a full band with drums and lights. We have all the equipment needed to support any event you need music for. We play everything from Matchbox 20, Eagles, Zac Brown Band, Garth Brooks and any request you might have (with a little lead time).
We hired Bill to play guitar/sing as our wedding guests were arriving to the ceremony and then to play as everyone was exiting the ceremony. Bill showed up early to the ceremony with all of his equipment and began to set up and play. I couldn't believe my ears! He was way more than what I expected. I even almost started crying when I heard him start playing. He played all the songs we wanted him to and even some great ones he picked. Our guests and other vendors kept commenting on how great he was and asked where we found him. He literally made our ceremony complete. Please book with Bill! He's so great and will make your event great!
Bill and Kari performed for our Airstream rally and they wowed the crowd. He sang and played wonderfully and was accompanied beautifully by Kari on the keyboard. Members of the audience unanimously agreed that Bill put on the best show ever! Book Bill Welch for your event and you will be mesmerized by his talent and professionalism.
Bill and Kari played for my son's wedding and were excellent! Very, very highly recommended. The family received many compliments throughout the evening on where we found the singer and if he is for hire. Bill is easy going and easy to work with and mainly, a great singer! He can play a variety of songs and has an outstanding voice. Bill more than exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Bill and Kari!
Bill played for my husbands 50th surprise party. He and his partner were amazing. My husband was speechless and EVERYONE was wanting his card. It was a memorable evening.
Bill and his partner (wife?) were perfect for our store anniversary entertainment! We had the two of them play for 3 hours outside our store to welcome customers and their music was perfect. They are extremely talented, take up little space, come completely prepared and do their gig without a hitch. It was great to work with these professional folks and look forward to utilizing their talents again soon!
Bill and his Band put on a great show for our party. They are a very versatile group playing songs from the 70's to today! We couldn't have been happier with their performance. They are an excellent group of musicians and an even greater group of people.

What to Expect
Kari and I show up on time, with the right equipment and are self contained. Just give a space and power and we'll take it from there.
We absolutely loves to play. Between the two of us we have over 40 years experience playing solo/duo gigs and with bands as well as community theatre. We love playing new country and classic acoustic rock. We can provide a duo or add drums for a full band sound. All of my bandmates are all accomplished musicians on their instrument and love playing as much as I do. We are very reasonably priced and have NEVER busted a budget when it comes to live music. Fee is always negotiable.
