Kim provided the ambiance for which we were aiming. She crafted the lineup of musical sound based on the two environments we conducted our celebration (first, the catholic church and second, the country club reception cocktail hour). We were extremely happy with how it all turned out. I would highlight, Kim was very accommodating with meeting with us early to plan the details given we were having a destination wedding and only made a couple trips to the Outer Banks of North Carolina prior to the wedding day!
Kim was fantastic and set the mood perfectly for our wedding ceremony! We absolutely loved her and she was very easy to work with! Thank you Kim :)
Kim was amazing! She was professional and really listened to what was important to us for our Catholic mass ceremony--I trusted her completely which was a huge relief! Her voice is absolutely gorgeous and all of our guests were raving about her! Thank you so much! Would HIGHLY recommend Kim!
thank you M & J for including me in your special day - felt like part of the family!!
continued blessings on your both & your new journey!
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!!
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.
We absolutely loved having Kim Kalman sing at our wedding mass. We received so many compliments from our guests about her singing and appreciated her prompt replies to our emails and questions. If you're looking for a professional, high quality singer at your wedding or reception then Kim is your girl!! We can't say enough good things about her work and talent!!
Kim's voice inspires! She knows her profession well. It was a blessing to us and our guests to have Kim play and sing at our wedding ceremony and reception. We highly recommend Kim Kalman. You'll be fortunate to have her.
thank you Angela & Chris for the opportunity to lend my gifts & talents to your special day - all was beautiful!
Kim, thank you so much for making our special day truly memorable! You were able to help set the overall mood and emotion of our wedding ceremony with your beautiful singing and guitar playing.
She is a professional that is easy to work with and able to quickly adapt to unplanned situations. Our first reader unexpectedly headed over to her mic stand for his reading and she very graciously stepped aside and allowed both of our readers use of her mic. We highly recommend Kim for your next event.
With much gratitude, Janet & Marc Sanidad
Thank you Janet & Marc! Beautiful ceremony, wonderful day filled w/terrific family & friends! See you next trip to OBX!
Kim definitely has a divine voice. However and this is a BIG however, she absolutely did not follow my instructions regarding how the music program was to flow. I had explicitly asked and she agreed to play light classical or other instrumental music - her choice - while the guests gathered. When I appeared she was chatting and no music was being played. She had to learn music for my ceremony and she made mistakes. The pieces were not hard and she was definitely paid well to learn the pieces and had plenty of time to be prepared. She was soloing the music and it was very apparent that she flubbed. To all. I feel as a well paid professional, first, my plan should have been followed (wasn't a surprise; we had gone over several times and was even written for her) and second yes, I feel there should have been no big mistakes... It showed me she didn't prep as hard as she needed to and a general lack of caring. Sadly these gigs are one time only and she doesn't have to rely on repeat customers... Again I should emphasize that she has a beautiful voice and maybe if you really nanny her with your Plan, she would succeed? Good luck!
Since I do not know what wedding this was, I can't respond to it but I apologize for the obvious misunderstanding on my part - I don't provide instrumental music as my package is vocals and guitar or violin and guitar (instrumental pieces only). If this person would like to email me directly at email@example.com happy to discuss options to ease the unhappiness w/my service.
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 :)
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 :)
Kim and Leslie were absolutely wonderful! !!! I would recommend them both a thousand times over again! !!! I love pulling up videos of the wedding just to hear the beautiful music!!!! Honestly could not have been happier with the service and music!!! Thanks so much again for making my special day even more special!!!!!
We decided to have a violin guitar duo for our beach wedding and Kim was great to work with through the whole process! She was quick to respond to all my emails and helped suggest pieces to use for our ceremony music. Everything sounded beautiful for our wedding, I'd highly recommend her!
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!!
Kim did a great job. Her music was appropriate and just the right for the event. She also did a wonderful job adding a little musical ablibing during the ceremony when the groom was having trouble with the sand candle.
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!
Kim Kalman provide the best service and performed the most beautiful music for our wedding. Family and friends have made many comments on how much they enjoyed her and I continue to receive compliments on how beautiful the ceremony sounded.
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.
Kim did an excellent job singing at our wedding ceremony and reception!! We received a number of comments from our friends and family about the beauty of her voice. She really added something special to our day and made it a day to never forget : ) Thanks so much, Kim!!!
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! :)
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.
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 !
I could not have asked for anything better in a musician. Kim was amazing, her professionalism and kindness were beyond anything I had experienced in any other aspect of my wedding planning. Her voice is perfection, and her willingness to learn and sing a new song for me was taken in her stride. My only complaint is that I didn't get to hear enough of her!!!!! If you are looking for a musician on the Outer Banks, Kim Kalman is the way go.
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 ! Lori
Kim Kalman was terrific: beautiful voice, right music selection, professional, and helpful.
Kim's voice was so beautiful!. Her music made our wedding ceremony and reception absolutely wonderful. We had a very intimate ceremony and reception with close family and friends. All of our guests enjoyed her choice of songs and her lovely voice. She made sure she knew a special songs that meant a lot to my husband and I and she sang them at the ceremony and reception. I would recommend her highly for any type wedding ceremony or special event.
