I'm a very soulful singer/entertainer. I use a wireless mic and love to get out in the audience and make it fun and high energy. I love to walk from table to table and sing to people or stay on stage and utilize all the dynamics I feel! I sing to the highest quality backing trax - some of which have been special ordered or recorded - I present a high quality, professional performance. I'm looking forward to entertaining you at your event!
Kelly can do it all! She handled all of the music for my wedding AND reception and flawlessly played every end of the spectrum to keep all ages up and moving. She went above and beyond as our guests were having such a good time it went well into the morning hours. Once you hear her voice and see that smile when she is performing, you will have no doubt Kelly Quinn is the right choice for any gig!
Response from Kelly Quinn:
Thank you so much Mindy! What incredibly generous and kind words!
I have seen Kelly sing several times with or without a band with her. She has a great stage presence and very authentic in presentation of songs. From The Rolling Stones to Stevie Nicks she is right one and in tune. Always getting new music and perfecting older songs.
Response from Kelly Quinn:
JayT! Thank you so much my friend! What a great message!!! Thank you!
Kelly is very unique as she can do it all...country, rock, R&B, blues. She might do Adele better than Adele! I strongly recommend her for any occasion. She plays to the room and can blend in or rock the house! Don't let her get away!
Response from Kelly Quinn:
Thank you so much Bob!
It is such a joy to experience this woman's performances. It goes beyond just listening to her play and sing: she draws you into the music and you want to be a part of the performance. She has an amazing voice and a unique effervescent presence on the stage. I would always attend one of her performances.
Response from Kelly Quinn:
Jim! You touch my heart! Thank you so much! I would sure love to see you in the audience again very soon! Thank you for this review!!

What to Expect
Singing and entertaining go hand in hand. I believe a lot of people can sing. When you combine the artform of being an entertainer along with a highly developed vocal skill, you have the complete package. I am confident I have that to offer. I use a wireless mic (Shure/Beta) and I always present myself professionally while maintaining a fun, energy-packed, entertaining ambiance. I’m able to read my audience and cater my interaction with the crowd based on each individual event. I love to walk around during the performance, engaging the audience and singing to people at their tables. I have an extensive music library and though I arrive prepared with set lists, I am easily able to take special requests from the audience. With a diverse 20-year stage and studio performance background in many mainstream music genres, I’m able to easily adapt my performance to the ambiance of any venue or event, including piano bar material, easy listening classics, classic rock, blues and blues/rock, pop and country. The sound I bring will be the complete sound of a full band including backup vocals, and I also incorporate my own live percussion instruments to enhance the overall sound/experience.
Kelly Quinn is originally from a small town in Michigan called Big Rapids. Her father, Don Quinn and her mother Mary, opened and built a successful music business called Quinn's Music. He was a drummer and passed away in 1977. The store is still open today but under new ownership. Kelly has been singing since she could speak and entertaining small gatherings in the family at a young age, to her high school Homecoming dance, to pubs, corporate events, and weddings. Kelly moved to Nashville in 1995 and then to Las Vegas in 1998 where she recorded in both Music City and in Vegas and opened up for Tom Jones impersonators and performed in many casinos. Kelly enjoys utilizing her dynamics and passion when she hits the power notes and loves to involve the audience because they are the reason she sings - to bring magic, love and beauty to the hearts of those who listen and see her. Kelly is looking to entertain further for local events, parties, weddings, pubs as she performs solo with her backing trax and percussion. Her influences include Beth Hart, Etta James, Adele, Heart, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, Gloria Gaynor, Eva Cassidy, Martina McBride, Joss Stone, Tina Turner, and many, many more! Her sound is unique, engaging, entertaining and has the ability to replace a full band at a very reasonable price. Kelly looks forward to hearing from you very soon to book your next party or event!
Additional Booking Notes
I am reliable, on time, always like to get the stage set up beforehand and do a sound check. I usually try to work that out with the person who hires me ahead of time. I have floor lights that stay cool enough to stay on the floor or depending on the venue, I will put them on the bar in front or beside me. I use a wireless mic and a corded mic so I can walk around during the performance and sing to people at their tables.
