The band was amazing, and not only was I, but my guests were also highly impressed by them. It was my first time hiring a band, I asked them to sing 90's and early 2000 R&B songs for my husband's 40th birthday party, and boy did they sing!! From the very beginning they made sure I was comfortable with their playlist and they kept in contact with me before, during and after their performance to ensure that my event went smoothly. During breaks they actually even played many songs that I requested on their laptop so that there was always music playing and people were always dancing! Their vocals and band were truly amazing and took us back in time. They brought all their equipment and sound and were quick in set up and breakdown, and best part of the whole night was how down to earth and genuinely nice they were. I will use this Klyntel again in the future.
Response from Klyntel:
Mandeep and her family were GREAT host & hostess thank you for allowing us to entertain you at your AMAZING home! Thank you for the review!!!
I cannot say enough about Klyntel. So if you are looking for a good time… STOP and look no further! This band brought the FUNK to our annual Awards Party. They were a surprise to our guests and let me tell you our guests were blown away. Kyyntel was engaging and high energy. I am sure there were some sore feet from all the dancing that happened that night. Not only are they entertaining, Klyntel is professional as well. As a Corporate Event Planner, I would recommend them to anyone who wants a memorable event.

I've produced and engineered (along with others) the Alki Art Fair for the past two years and Klyntel has been a featured performance both times. Klyntel brings crowds to events and their music gets that crowd off their feet and into the music. A highly professional and super-entertaining group, Klyntel is not only a great band, they are great musicians to work with.
If you're even considering hiring this band, just do it-seriously, these guys gave us more than we expected. They showed up on time, they engaged the crowd and they sounded GREAT!
We have our annual company party every year and no one has ever stayed past 9pm no matter what we did, these guys kept people on the dance floor and they even stayed past the time we payed them for.
Professional, I can't say enough about these guys, I can't wait to work with them again
Last weekend I attended the Ocean Shores Jazz Festival, which of course was great. They had a new band called Klyntel. I thought this band was absolutely fabulous--musically talented and extremely upbeat and entertaining. Everyone in the room looked like they were having fun.
Klyntel is progressive Jazz as opposed to the old-timey Dixieland Jazz. They play the kind of music that true jazz aficionados appreciate.
I am telling you this because I overheard someone telling a Seaside sponsor not to book Klyntel because the old farts didn't like them, and they were not danceable. That is not true! They have a strong beat that is imminently danceable. Plus, I am one old fart who really appreciated them. I like Dixieland Jazz, but I also like variety.
Please consider booking Klyntel.
P.S. The jazz festivals need to also book bands like Klyntel that appeal to the younger generation. My generation is dying out. Don't let the jazz festivals die with us.
