Check out why NKG is 5-Star rated from our reviews:

-Anders N 1/02/2022

"We hired NKG because we wanted a band that would make our wedding party memorable. They completely delivered! Our guests loved their set list, and we loved all the crowd interaction. It felt like everyone in attendance got to watch an awesome concert at times. They were easy to work with during the hiring and planning process as well. If you’re looking for a band to create a uniquely fun atmosphere, hire NKG!"


  • How far does NKG travel?
    We can travel any distance from our hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. We have performed in New Jersey, South Carolina, Michigan and even Key West, Florida.
  • How is your wedding show different from your bar/nightclub show?
    If you've seen NKG, you know our bar/nightclub shows are intense and over-the-top. Yet for weddings, we customize our set list, show elements, and even our etiquette to be 100% family friendly and professional, but still highly interactive. This is slightly different than public bar/nightclub shows, and NKG is exceptional at listening to our clients, reading the crowd, and creating a show unique to each event. For weddings the cast and crew will wear professional work shirts before guests arrive, and then clean professional suits the entire night, including during the performance. Our goal is to please all of your guests regardless of age, tastes, or background.

  • Can I pre-pay for my wedding many months in advance?
    Yes, but we strongly prefer you pay in one lump payment per the contract which is 1-2 weeks before the wedding date.. We do not like a lot of small scheduled payments, it’s very hard to keep track of.

    For WEDDINGS: you can mail us an paper check to the address on the contract, or you can request an online invoice that you can pay by card. It will come from Note: if you elect to pay the final balance by card, there will be a 3% convenience fee.

  • I have this really crazy idea for a surprise for one or more of my guests, can you help?
    YES! We love extra ideas that make a party unique.

  • How can the band be two places at once?!?! You are scheduled to perform at my wedding, but I see on your calendar you are scheduled at another event on the same date. I’m freaking out!
    Our band has a cast of 12+ members and often performs in two places at once. We employ a network of dedicated musician performers. All of our entertainers are full-time professional musicians who work full-time with our group. We have multiple members for each instrument, and this allows us to perform multiple shows in the same day.
