Must have Kim Kalman Perform on Your Special Day! Absolutely Amazing Voice!
Music was important to us for our wedding. Not being from the OBX area, we had no idea who we could get to perform at our Church ceremony. At the recommendation of a friend who attended Mass at Holy Redeemer Church in Kitty Hawk and heard a singer who was truly amazing, we reached out to Kim Kalman. From the initial phone call with Kim, my husband and I knew this was the right fit for us. She was wonderful to deal with. I didn’t want the traditional organ played at my wedding. Kim plays the guitar. I had asked her if she knew of a violin player, as I wanted something a little bit more. She was able to get Jessie Taylor to accompany her. When my sister got married, she had a song that a local artist in DC wrote and sang to her sister when she got married, played at her wedding – which I absolutely loved! I asked Kim if she would be able to perform it at my wedding. Not a problem at all! It was beautiful and the sound in the Church was amazing. Both Kim and Jessie are talented musicians! Book early with these ladies!! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 05/20/2019

Kim was awesome. We had her for our ceremony, playing guitar and singing. She learned a special song that we wanted to hear for that amazing day. We had a super small wedding and then we had Kim come back to the house where our reception was being held and she entertained for "cocktail hour". She was super easy to work with and we'd have her again given the chance!!Sent on 10/21/2015

Kim did a great job with music for our clients at the Reese/Newhof event! She was prompt with her email and phone call planning and very workable for the client. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again soon.Sent on 06/02/2015

Kim was absolutely amazing! She was responsive from our first meeting all the way to the last hymn was sung! Everyone commented on her beautiful voice which filled the church with beautiful sound. Even though I was the mother of the bride, I found myself escaping from stress to the beauty of the music! I absolutely recommend her to anyone lucky enough to find time on her schedule! You won't be disappointed :)Sent on 08/26/2014

At the time of my daughter's wedding we lived in Virginia Beach, VA, but had a vacation home on the Outer Banks. We attend Mass at Holy Trinity Chapel by the Sea whenever we are on the Outer Banks and had always been inspired by Kim's beautiful voice. My daughter wanted to incorporate a part of our beach life in her wedding ceremony and so we asked Kim if she would be willing to sing at her wedding. Thank goodness she agreed. Kim was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. She brought her equipment and worked with our home parish to set up. Her suggestions of songs was right on target with what we envisioned. She captivated our wedding guests. Every song was sung with amazing clarity and she set the tone for the whole ceremony! It was absolutely wonderful and everything went off without a hitch. We have been asked several times who she was and where we found her! I couldn't have been happier with how the wedding turned out. It was a beautiful ceremony! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone who wants their event to be amazing :)Sent on 10/23/2015

Kim did an absolutely fantastic job with the music for our wedding ceremony at Holy Redeemer by the Sea in Kitty Hawk. Her voice is incredible and she was also able to accompany herself on the guitar! Kim was also very accommodating- we went to her just a few weeks before the wedding and she was willing to work with us! What a great musician!!Sent on 05/15/2014

Kim Kalman and Leslie provided the music for the religious ceremony wedding of our daughter at Holy Trinity by the Sea on the Outer Banks, May 1st. Kim made the whole event a pleasure, providing her beautiful voice and augmenting the richness of these special moments in our family memory-trove. I recommend her professionalism and reliability without question. So glad we went with the best!Sent on 05/18/2014

Kim was fantastic! The music was beautiful and fit my daughter's dreams perfectly. Kim was so responsive to our wishes and personally contacted us at home in Arizona to help us out. I would highly recommend Kim for a beautiful music experience.Sent on 11/09/2013

Kim was fantastic - I contacted her only a week or two before our wedding, as I decided to add a vocalist to our wedding ceremony at the last minute (we had already hired a violinist). Kim responded quickly to my inquiry via her website, and we talked that evening and the next morning to negotiate a price. Since we already had one musician and our budget was tight, she was very flexible in lowering her regular rate for us, which was extremely helpful! Although I was able to hear audio clips on her site, the first time we saw and heard Kim live was at our ceremony, and we were certainly not disappointed - she saw the responsorial psalm and alleluia verse during our Catholic ceremony, and I was so glad we had her there. Her vocals and guitar definitely brought more life to the ceremony and truly sounded beautiful! Kim also joined forces with our violinist for spontaneous violin/guitar duets on Canon in D, Wedding March and Bridal Chorus, which we really, really enjoyed! The music was truly beautiful, and we were absolutely thrilled to have Kim as a part of it. Four thumbs up from this happy couple! :)Sent on 10/13/2013
Kim Kalman's reply:thank you so much for the invitation to be a part of your special day - it was beautiful! Congrads!!

Our daughter was married on the beach, in the OBX. For us, it was a destination wedding, as well as an outdoor wedding, so planning got to be difficult at times. We decided to go with live music about 4 months before the wedding, so we were very lucky Kim was available. Our daughter had a wedding song in mind that Kim had to learn in 4 months, maybe even less than that ! She did a great job ! Kim was also very helpful with advice and planning since she was very familiar with the area, and had done many beach weddings before.Sent on 09/23/2013
Kim was very professional, entertaining, and her music and voice were incredible !!! Music selection was outstanding covering a large variety of artists.She went from the beach, to the reception venue, without loosing a beat !!!
Kim, thanks so much for making our daughter's wedding so special. Everyone had so much fun, from the kids to the grandparents !

Kim was everything we hoped for and more. If you go to her website and listen to her samples she sounded just like it. We also had a violinist that she picked . It was absolutely beautiful! To see and hear them playing on the beach was breathtaking. Thank you again ! LoriSent on 08/12/2013

Kim was recommended to me by my caterer when I mentioned that I was looking for someone in the Outer Banks to play guitar during my wedding ceremony. Right when I heard her samples on her website I knew she was perfect. I was really specific about what I wanted when I came down the aisle with my Dad - "Can't help falling in love" done in the style that Ingrid Michaelson plays it. Kim knocked it out of the park, all of the guests loved it! Working with Kim was so easy, I would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 10/23/2015
