What to Expect
We can provide our own sound system and soundman. Crystal clear and as loud or as quiet as you would like. We also have worked with a number of Cincinnati's finest production companies. We can give you fast, slow, energetic or laid back. We can be the party, entertain the party, or be the background soundtrack for events. We offer a wide variety of music to entertain a wide array of people. These songs can be interchanged depending on the crowd.
Started in 2013, The Refranes showcase a wide variety of music. From Aretha Franklin to Guns N Roses, LaBelle to the Foo Fighters, Billy Idol to Elle King, we do it all. Fronted by Alicia Kuzel and backed by guitarist Andy McKeown, bassist Dave Janes, keyboardist Barry Elliott, and drummer Dave McCartt, we "cover" almost anything you want. If you want harmonies, we have them. Each instrumentalist also takes turns singing lead on a few songs.
We have played events for Sycamore Township, Mason, Crescent Springs, Lebanon, St. Johns Deer Park, Nativity, St. Margaret Mary, St. Saviour, etc. and have played a wide variety of local bars & grilles and marinas. We have also done weddings and corporate events, so we have any event covered.
We would love to help entertain you at your next event!
Additional Booking Notes
We can provide sound, as we have a professional sound man as well as a professional sound system and lighting. However, we have worked with a number of the area's finest sound/production companies. We have a guitarist, keyboardist, drummer, bassist, and lead singer, and we all sing in some capacity, so 5 vocal mics, and an instrumental mic for each would be required.
