Brand New Key

Lo-fi, blue/stomp/folk/porch-grass.


Brand New Key would love to play your party, wedding, event, farmstead, benefit, conference, reception - anything!

We’ve done it all.

Our Rates

$150/hour. We can play up to 2 hours max of material (2 hours includes a 15-20 minute break). If you need our sets to be family friendly, we can handle that with no problem!

For an additional $100, we’ll bring/set-up/break-down our own sound PA rig. Just think: you don’t have to worry about renting or hiring sound people or sweating it out with all the heavy lifting; we've got you covered. We’ll even DJ during band breaks. We only need 1 working electrical outlet and an extension cord (as needed).

We also love playing benefits, so if you're in need of great music for your cause, please do drop us a line to see if we're available.

What We Expect From Our Hosts

Meet us/Greet us/Tell us where to set up. We are timely folks who will arrive exactly when you say. We just need to know which bathrooms to use, where you've cleared a space for us, and when to start. 

Please let us know what we can/cannot have at your event: Drinks? Food? It is your event, and we like to know expectations of our host/hired band relationship. If you've got drinks and food to share, that's wonderful. If not, we are happy to bring our own refreshments.

Thank you for considering Brand New Key for your event!
