Q: You Donate one Gig per month to a Charity?  How does a Charity / Not-for-Profit organization get selected for a free band gig?

A: YES!   We can provide entertainment to your charity event IF the charity / fundraiser:   

Has an presence in Ohio;   Is not a religious-based entity;   Is hosting an event that will attract a minimum of 100 adults;   Is having an event in a venue or outside space large enough for a band, people, and dancing if desired;   Serves all people equitably without discrimination;  Can cover the cost of a Sound System usage if not already present at venue;  Contacts and asks Victorious KayBirds at least 45 days prior to event;  If VKB is not already scheduled for an other charity event that month.    Note:   Charity Shows are limited to < 3.5 hour performance time, including union breaks.  Regular rates apply after 3 hours.  

Q: Why does VKB have New Orleans Artists and Songs (NOLA) included in their Soul, Blues, Rock Set lists?

A: Karla Kay was fortunate to visit New Orleans and other Louisiana cities many times over the years; Before Katrina (BK) and AK.  She remembers her first time she heard Charmaine Neville and later the Neville Brothers, and the first time she heard Brass bands, zydeco bands, SW Texas blues, and felt the energy of NOLA.  With such a variety of music attributed to and played in Louisiana, it is exciting to spice up a set list with some unique songs of the south.  Karla also helped provide Disaster Relief for over 6 months in 2005 in Louisiana & TX after Katrina and Rita hurricanes.  This added a unique blend of new-to-her music to her expansive setlist.  Plus, Karla Kay likes King Cake and the Mardis Gras Traditions.  The State of Ohio needs a bit of that energy, espccially in March.

Q: Does Victorious KayBirds play for  Private events, 'Celebrations of  Life', 2nd Weddings, Corporate parties, Special Events, Political Fundraisers, House Backyard BBQ's, and Large Unique Community Events ? 

A:  YES !!  All of the above and more.  We are able to do that quite well because our musicians are experienced and versatile which enables them to adjust their style to your event, without losing our personality. Moreover we have created uniques shows and setlists for different events and with different size bands.  Adaptable from our usual 6 piece band down to 3-piece band, or up to 7 :)     PLUS- we now have: 1) a Mobile Stage, if you don't have enough room inside!  2) Our own ASCAP & BMI licenses to use for events, if you do not subscribe.  Lets stay legal.

Ask us about planning a Bring-the-Band-Home  event with your friends, co-workers, club members, & family reunions.  It can be more fun and often less expensive to have a party with a LIVE BAND at your house, backyard, local park, etc.  Instead of everyone driving to a bar to hear live music, why not have a House or Block Party and stay safely at home?!  Ask about our mobile Stage! This is more affordable than most think.....with 32 of your friends! 

Q: Where do you post your Calendar, to share past and future events?  (We don't see them on your Website) 

A: Sadly, we are not really website or social media gurus.  Sigh.  We curently keep the calendar and event updates on our FaceBook Events section of our Page: https://www.facebook.com/VictoriousKayBirds/Events   SEE our PAST Events too!

We hope to add a Calendar page to this website in 2022.  However, we  listed many places where we HAVE played, on our page "About Us" , on this web site ! We do not promote or share shows far in advance of events.  Also, we do not list or display many Private Events, if the public is not invited.  Nor do we show event photos from private events, unless specifically asked to by the Hostess / Organizer.  We are, however, highly reachable and responsive.  Thus if you have questions about where we are playing or have played, and you do not want to check our FB page, then please reach us via email and like my mom said - "Just Ask!" 

Q:  Do you have any 'Specials' this  year? 

A:  YES!  

1) Specials to Ohio Libation Creaters -  Wineries or Breweries or Distilleries - to bring our mobile stage & full band, esp. if you have a large parking lot or green space.  Contact us to liven up Your events such as:  uncorkings, grand openings, tappings, Food Truck events, etc.  Let's use more space outside with our stage and licenses. More People = More Fun = More Revenue.
