"I recently saw Maggie and her band perform at Square Pegs Harvest Party, and she had me dancing all night! Her energy was contagious, lively and powerful. Needless to say, she is an wonderful entertainer."

Maggie Rains and the Crooked Keys are a great band mixing Soul, Funk, Jazz and many more genres into their high energy set. I watched their sound get better with every performance I seen throughout the year. With their eclectic instruments and musicians you will get a sound you have never heard from an average band. On top of that Maggie’s powerful voice will grab your attention! They are a must have at any concert, festival, or event.
Event Coordinator, Headwater Festival 2018
On Saturday afternoon Aug. 25 at the 3rd annual Headwaters Music Festival, Maggie Rains and the Crooked Keys took the stage and delivered an energetic, high quality performance. Backed by competent and well rehearsed musicians, Maggie belted out the blues bringing the audience to their feet. Her soaring and pitch perfect delivery would have been enough for the crowd but she chose to jump from the stage and wander the crowd as she sang. Maggie and the Crooked Keys deliver the goods!
WOW – Love it! Great singing, Maggie Rains! You have such a fun stage presence & great vocals! Love the dancing, singing & your band!
So much enthusiasm, energy, tight band, and wonderful command of your vocals!

Maggie Rains and the Crooked Keys, were Amazing. I had a benefit dance and need a band that would help us out. They stood up and donated their time to help raise money for the Fire Victims. The music was AMAZING!! I highly recommend them.
Listening to Maggie feels so good. Her voice reaches deep down.

Maggie Rains & Crooked Keys played for ALMA's annual membership concert on 2/16/19 at Society Hall and she and the band blew the audience away! What a show, and what a powerhouse that Maggie Rains is -- she had everyone in the house grooving to the great music. A fun time for all!
Maggie Rains played our wedding this past weekend. They were amazing. Tracy was so easy to work with, super responsive and accommodating. We loved their versatile set list -- more jazzy, bluesy stuff during the reception part, and then some amazing high energy stuff to dance to during the second half. We were overwhelmed by compliments from our guests--everyone loved the band, and when does that ever happen?!?
A most fabulous and brilliant Blues Production!
Masterful instrumentation coupled with very powerful and impressive vocals fronted by Maggie Rains is of top tier! The artist puts a great spin on various covers and is quite simply bedazzling! I highly recommend “Maggie Rains & the Crooked Keys” and not only to any and all serous blues lovers but for those who delight in other genres as well! I found the energy, her creative power and intensity to be in a similar vein to Janis Joplin with Maggie’s own superb spin on each and every song!
Very enjoyable show!
