Jazz: The Music of Love


Finding that perfect sound. When booking a band you’re looking for the best musicians that can help you create that once in a lifetime moment.

Musicians that can help you put your story into song and a band that can enhance the moment. Creating the ultimate playlist, there is no better fit than jazz, a genre full of intimacy, romance and memories.

Jazz musicians have throughout the decades been known for being spontaneous, melodic improvisation becoming an interpretation of stories and feelings through music. 

Some of the best jazz storytellers in town are members of The People’s Key. Whether it's performing onstage to a crowded theatre audience or an intimate wedding party, band leader Ryan Marquez describes the band’s mantra as being centered on love and musical expression of memories. 


“Listen. Remember. Love. This is a little slogan we’ve been saying to each other and even had on our first business card. We hope that when people hear our music they are captured to listen to what we are playing, remembering songs and times associated with that brings about a feeling of love. Love for the song, love for the memory, and hopefully love for the band.”

Combining the happy swinging feel of the Kansas City Jazz scene with the hard, soulful groove of St. Louis Funk, Soul, and Blues, The People’s Key blends these Mid-Western styles into one cohesive sound. They swing in the traditional style of jazz but provide listeners the opportunity to ride along as they relive the sounds of their lifetimes, with tunes by modern artists from Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder to Green Day, Jay-Z and Bruno Mars. This band puts the classic organ group sound of the ‘50s & ‘60s on all your favorites from the ‘70s and beyond.

The People’s Key is designed to connect the jazz vernacular with a modernized songbook. The People’s Key performs material from popular artists, genres, songs, and themes to engage in the maximum connection possible with their audiences.

The band has released 4 albums: The People’s Key (2013) The Sean Carter Jazz Suite with Lamar Harris (2014) and Heal The World (2015). The band’s current release “Within You” (Fall 2016) features the music of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, 90’s grunge and more.

Led by Ryan Marquez on Organ/Keybass, the group currently features Matt Rowland on Guitar, Charlie Cerpa on Saxophone and Mike Murano on Drums.
