Mckenzie & Elliott
WHEN YOU WANT LIVE MUSIC THAT ENHANCES THE MOOD OF THE ROOM WITHOUT GETTING IN THE WAY, BOOK THIS DUO.
McKenzie & Elliott are a musical duo that specializes in setting a stylish, tasteful vibe for your wedding, cocktail hour, corporate event, or other private event. Think less loud and generic, and more groove-based and atmospheric. Not mindless enough to be background music, but not so overbearing that it takes over the room. Music that sets the mood just right.
The setlist emphasizes diverse selections (e.g. Beyoncé, John Prine, Usher, Bonnie Raitt, Little Dragon, The Eagles) – but all arranged and performed in a cohesive style and less-is-more approach that plays somewhere in the indie r&b / pop-jazz genre.
McKenzie is an accomplished vocalist who moved back to Charleston, SC after a six-year stint in New York as a professional recording artist while running the music division of BluRoc records, managing (and performing in) a 50-city national tour with hip hop artist Murs, and heading A&R for the Black Keys/WuTang collaborative record BlakRoc.
Elliott is an accomplished musician in his own right, and joins McKenzie on keyboards and vocals. Since playing together, the two have become fixtures in the Charleston scene. Most recently, the two were voted Charleston Magazine's 50 Most Progressive.
