We're proud to say we were a runner-up as one of the Best Party Bands in Columbus in the 2014 City Scene Magazine Survey! We play a mix of Classic Rock, Motown, pop, modern country and some current music in which all songs have what we've dubbed "a High Fun Factor". So, you can dance if you want to! You'll know the music we play, and the synergy between the band and our audience is something we enjoy! The musical experience we bring will make your event a success. We are veterans of many diverse shows from standard club dates, to private parties, to corporate events, festivals to weddings; we've done 'em all and provided great entertainment and a memorable positive experience for all! You can provide that experience for your guests too! We like say we play music from Adele to ZZ Top with some Country and Motown sprinkled in between. It's a perfect mix to get folks dancing! Just select The Neighbor's Kid's. They'll come over and assure you and your guests of a good time!
We began as a corporate band for the Information Technologies Department for mega-business Limitedbrands Inc.in 2002. We were having so much fun doing a few corporate gigs; we took the idea further, and began performing outside of work!
We have lots of musical experience within the band, with most of our members holding degrees in music. Our music is perfect for a festival, corporate event, Christmas party, private party, wedding or a club date. In our 12+ years, we've performed at many places in the Columbus and surrounding area, including: The Scioto Mile at Bicentennial Park in Columbus, FM (Gahanna), Jimmy V's (Westerville), Quaker Steak & Lube at Polaris, Rude Dog, Victory's, Park Street Patio, Gatsby's, The Bogey Inn, Fitzgerald's, The Crown Sports Lounge (Gahanna), The Grandview Cafe, Nike Sports Lounge, Benny's Pizza, the former Brickyard and Gordy's (RIP). Look for us performing around the Columbus, Ohio area, check us out, for we would love to do a show just for YOU!
Here's what some of our customers are saying:
TENK is a fun energetic band that puts on a great show and has a lot of fun doing it. They play crowd pleasing favorites with precision and articulation. They bring top of the line sound equipment as well as an impressive light show. All of the members of the band are extremely polite and very easy to work with. I highly recommend them to any venue attempting to create a fun environment for their patrons, and I will definitely be booking them again at my venue in the future.

I am writing this letting you know that TENK is quite a good band. I have known these people for almost two years now and I feel we have a great working relationship. They bring a good crowd when they play and are very entertaining. I would recommend them to anyone for their establishment.

The neighbor's kids rock! They truly rocked the house down last night at my daughter's wedding at Station 67. Highly recommend this band! Great variety of music but the closing segment of Journey songs was fabulous as we all danced the night away. Gloria was great at helping us control the flow of the evening's events. "

Bill, Gloria, Eric, Matt, and Jim. Thank you so much for the awesome show last Saturday night at the wedding of Brett Clapper and Amy Moore. You are all top notch performers and I love the way you interact with the crowd. I got a ton of positive comments about your performance. Where else can you hear one chord guitar solos and more cowbell? Thanks for help making it a night that none of us will ever forget.
