Our Story

Black Key Optional

My name is Kyle Buhrer and I am the owner of Black Key Optional. I started this company because I love music and I love how music can make an event extra special. My goal is to produce your vision, and to do so, we need three core values: 1) customization, 2) flawless execution, and 3) talented & engaging entertainers. Customization means you get to create the set list or even the outfits we wear – whatever will add the cherry on top. We are prompt, precise, and professional, making sure we are never late and always communicating quickly with the customer. Finally, our musicians are experienced and gifted. We want you to not only be happy, but have lasting memories.

“Made Our Event!”

“Kyle and his group were FANTASTIC to work with. They came up with a custom set-list to fit the theme of our party, and were on time, professional, and really went above and beyond. I would recommend them to ANYONE looking for a band for an event!”

“We Love Kyle”

“Kyle, and Gabe, where amazing. They took the time to do a rehearsal before the wedding. Kyle was very easy to contact. Kyle and Gabe perform at our wedding and did a fantastic job! Played to many different styles of music and brought so much life to the party. We got so many compliments from the guest of how beautifully they played. They will be our primary pianist for our future events! We love you guys and appreciate all you did for that day!”
