From the Fans


"I've seen Kyle perform in multiple situations: individually, with a group, in nursing homes, and working with the youth in our schools.  No matter the age, he always gives 100% in all that he does.  Kyle knows his audience and tries to make it a fun experience for all by taking requests and adding trivia about the music he plays.  Kyle's love of music is apparent in every performance. He is a talented musician that works tirelessly to bring the joy of music to our community."

"We hired Kyle for an event we held in April. I had seen Kyle previously at a couple of his shows and felt he would be perfect for the event. He was great to deal with and was very accommodating to our wishes. He played a wide variety of music from 60's, 70's and 80's and even took request as well. He was very interactive with the audience as well. The performance was great he's a talented musician and plays a good variety of songs that I haven't heard a lot of other local artists play. I would definitely recommend him to someone looking for great live entertainment for their event. Everyone at the event really seemed to enjoy his performance."

"Kyle McArdell is a very talented musician and singer. He plays a wide variety of music for all types of crowds to enjoy. He also plays with a larger band for bigger events. You won't be sorry if you book Kyle for your event. We love booking him to play live music at the Country Club of Terre Haute. Very high energy and crowd engagement!!"

 - Christa P.

"A band can play for 3-4 hrs with different people and instruments to combine for a wide range of music. However doing this as an individual in a solo act is very difficult. Kyle’s versatility with a guitar, his personality and his love of music come together for an enjoyable musical experience.  A wide variety of audiences from young and old enjoy the gamut of his song choices. Kyle has a wide vocal range as well. You’ll be in the room with everyone from Buddy Holly to Billy Joel. As Kyle likes to say “songs you love to hear played live…but never do."

 - Melanie and Greg C.


"Traveled out to the 36 Saloon in Rockville Indiana on June 16th to check out Kyle McArdell's acoustic show. Kyle puts on a first rate professional show. He is very personable and injects that personality and style into his broad catalogue of covers making his show MUCH more entertaining than your typical cover band. If you haven't taken the time to check him out, you owe it to yourself to go to one of his shows!"
