Booking Information

Setting The Right Mood

With a song list of unforgettable classics from Sinatra to Van Morrison to Norah Jones, our Trio can create the perfect atmosphere for your event - from elegant background ambiance to upbeat music for dancing – we can even DJ modern dance hits to round off the evening. Exceptional music your guests will enjoy, young and old alike. And we always take care to maintain the appropriate volume for each situation because we know that your guests will want to chat and enjoy themselves!


We have over thirty years of combined experience as full time professional musicians and have played for countless private parties, weddings and corporate events throughout the Midwest and beyond. For client testimonials please visit our Booking page.

Availability and Rates

We book on a first come, first serve basis and our rates vary depending on the date, travel distance, number of musicians, etc. To check the band's availability and rates for your event please email us at midwest-media@cox.net (Hotmail users please call) with the date, location and approximate number of hours needed. Or call us at 405.286.1319 and we'll get back to you with a hassle-free, no obligation quote as soon as we can.

More than a Trio

While the trio consists of Heather Nelson on vocals/piano, bassist Johnny Nelson and Mike Walker on drums, we also offer a range of options to fit any situation or budget - from a simple duo for smaller events, to a Deluxe five piece band with Sax & Guitar for larger functions. We can even DJ a dance party set later in the evening with a custom song list chosen by you – the best of both worlds for one great price! We’re always happy to hear what you have in mind for your event and offer suggestions if requested to help you choose the perfect option that’s right for you.

We'll provide everything

No piano at your venue? No problem, Heather uses her own high quality keyboard at most of the events we play (the same one used in our audio samples). Usually the only thing we'll need is access to an electrical outlet  - we provide everything else - all sound equipment necessary to perform for your event and our space requirements are very flexible, accommodating any situation. We can also make any announcements you would like.

Booking is simple

To secure a booking we'll send you a simple one page contract by mail or email – your choice. Simply review, sign and return it along with a small deposit and your date is locked in. We’ll send back a fully signed copy for your records right way. The balance isn't due until the day of the event. Payment can be made by check, cash or credit cards through www.PayPal.com.

Corporate clients will receive an invoice/contract and the deposit can be waived so you'll only need to process one check.
