ABOUT KES ENTERTAINMENT

KES Entertainment provides worldwide digital and US physical music and film distribution for record labels and artists. Our marketing and promotion team specialize in structuring tailored campaigns, assisting the artist with connecting to their fans, and creating new ones.

The commonality that brought these three together was the love and passion for music and how it to get it heard in the most effective way.

Dynamic Duo of the Entertainment Biz

It’s all about the artist with Jammer Direct and KES Entertainment from music, comedy and film. With events changed for the summer and the near future due to COVID19 the Dynamic Duo of the entertainment biz have stepped up to fill the gap that is missing how artists of all levels and genres will get out on mass while keeping everyone safe. It all started with LIVE@HOME premiering on JDtv, that streams online, ROKU and Amazon FIRE TV that brought Indie Musicians into the homes of fans old and new alike in a way like never before.  During the age of social distancing numerous bands, musicians and singer songwriters have decided to self stream performances via Skype, zoom, facebook or instagram which have it’s limits on who they will reach; LIVE@HOME gives musicians the opportunity to reach that concert, or festival potential on a global basis, something most will never experience but now can. LIVE@HOME has reached a combined audience of over 25 thousand people around the globe in just 2 broadcasts. The concerts are rebroadcast on KEStv on Roku  and on JDtv on their streaming avenues continuously so lovers of indie music can experience the best the independent music scene has to offer again and again. To be part of the next LIVE@HOME  please visit 

An option for DJ’s DJ DIGTIAL TAKEOVER  has also been launched since events in Ibizza to Gay PRIDE dance parties have been cancelled. DJs’ are about to take over JammerStream MIX, the HiNRG, trance, house mix channel of jammerstream that can be heard globally on the web, mobile, HD Radio, Alexa, Alexa for Auto, GM Auto Radio, Samsung+, RoKu  and KES Radio  All with rebroadcasts With the option to add a video stream of themselves on the DECKS  This is more than your average mixshow but a full HD quality sound and sight musical dance party.  DJ’s of all levels, genres and experiences interested may send enquiries to al@jammer.direct.

The Independent Artist of all genres and levels continue to be welcomed into the Dynamic Duo of Entertainment with the launching of 2 non musical events to be on JDtv, Jammerstream and KEStv and KESradio:  COMEDY@HOME and FilmFest@HOME  honouring the talents of the independent artist.  

COMEDY@HOME, comedians from clean to cheeky are encouraged to be part of this event. Comedians have been just as hard hit as musicians in this pandemic age of social distancing, PRIDE events, festivals and fairs where a lot of book gigs and comedy clubs that have now limited seating with careful openings  are no longer an option for the near future. Comedy@HOME will allow comedians to reach that global audience and help the world heal with laughter . AS with LIVE@HOME and DJ Digital Takeover comedians performances get a QR code which links to an artist page, a link of a virtual tip jar along with social media links and website links.  UNLIKE other platforms performers with COMEDY@HOME, LIVE@HOME and DJ Digital Takeover keep all the tips and any money from merchandise sold.

The next big thing launched from the DD of Entertainment is FilmFEST@HOME  many film fests and screenings in cinemas have been set back or not a reality at this moment, filmmakers, directors and actors/actresses have no easy way to get their work seen. Netflix and other streaming services are expensive and smaller ones don’t have that reach.

You’re GAYGAF! A new way for Gay/Bi/Trans+ men to be as Gay or

You’re GAYGAF!  A new way for Gay/Bi/Trans+ men to be as Gay or Kinky as they want! The brainchild of Andy Coney wanted to build a Gay site to fill a gap that was missing with other ones.  A site where you could be as GAY as F**K without worrying about violating some antiquated Terms Of Service or being Flagged by some over-sensitive git who was offended by something they shouldn’t be offended by.  

GAYGAF is more than a place you can be Gay AF but it’s a one stop shop so to speak where you will find clothiers such as custom made Kilts, Travel Agents for that Gay AF Holiday with the boys, Pubs and Clubs, Resorts and Bath Houses, anything and everything you could possibly need. A place to show off your art or sell used underwear; promote your group or organisation to have a “chat” for that potential shag.

Site creator Andy said “I just want to see if I built what I had in mind.. I guess this is a great way to see if I did”

The Otter Tartan Is Here!

JustKiltme.com is pleased to announce the launch of the exclusive Otter Tartan!  The official name in Gaelic Breacan Dobhran was designed by the proprietor who has claim to the title Baron Of Otter;  a kilt/ tartan expert and historian whose clan bears the Otter on their Arms, Clan Balfour. The Otter Tartan is in deference to clan Balfour and it’s branches Arms along with clans and families that bear the Otter in Heraldry from Lutrell, Fullerton, MacBeath;  along with numerous others who have the Otter in their Heraldry and Clan mythology. The Tartan also pays deference to the Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Breton and Norse heraldry, mythology and Legends that include Otters, the Lochs, Streams and Sea where the Dyfrgi (Water dogs)  live and play in lore.   

The colours Black, Brown, White and Blue pay homage to the wee creatures that delight us so; and the legend of brenin dyfrgwn saith dyfrgi du. Otter king seven black otters. Found in Irish, Welsh and   Scottish legend and tales of ‘Otter Kings’ who were accompanied by seven black otters. When captured, these beasts would grant any wish in exchange for their freedom. But their skins were also prized for their ability to render a warrior invincible, and were thought to provide protection against drowning. Luckily, the Otter Kings were hard to kill, their only vulnerable point being a small point below their chin. The tartan also pays homage the whole kinship of the clans, septs, surnames associated with Otters, the love of Otters, a true Dobhran Coibhneil (Gaelic) Carennydd y Dyfrgi (Welsh)  Kindred of Otters.

A special Heraldic Arms have been created for the Tartan and the Kindred designed by Chris Onyeaghor, with the motto of  “vivet vita ad plenissimam” “Live Life To The Fullest”  which Otters do.

This Exclusive Tartan was masterly woven the Master Weaver at our Just Kilt Me “Partners In Tartan” WoodTex International.

Monies raised from the sale of the Kilt will help benefit Otter Conservation Efforts of The International Otter Survival Fund  https://www.otter.org/Public/ and for the Otter Habitat at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium  https://www.columbuszoo.org/

The Kilt will retail for $175.00 USD available on www.justkiltme.com

A must to check out THE MYSTERY PLAN

A must to check out:   THE MYSTERY PLAN, who, under the leadership of JASON HERRING, pay homage to actor JC QUINN, perhaps best known for his role in ‘Vision Quest’ with Matthew Modine. Their new single ‘Ballad of JC Quinn’ was inspired by their friendship, mutual admiration and tragic death in 2000. This and the ultra cool single ‘Al Gore Rhythms’ foreshadow the band’s new ‘Zsa Zsa’ LP, their fifth to date. The single is out now  with LP to follow on April 4.  

The Mystery Plan have announced their fifth album ‘Zsa Zsa’, which will be released in early April via boutique label Ten Millimeter Omega Recordings. Ahead of this, they present the lead single ‘Ballad of JC Quinn’, following up their recently-released infectious Massive Attack-esque single Al Gore Rhythms’.

Produced by the legendary John Fryer and Jason Herring, this record also features such notable guests as Micah Gaugh (The Veldt / Apollo Heights), Ian Masters, That Guy Smitty and Snap Nation. This is not the first time The Mystery Plan has worked with Fryer, having previously collaborated on their fourth full-length release ‘Queensland Ballroom’, released in late 2017, and the ‘Electric Love’ single.

Based in Charlotte, NC, the band is comprised of Jason Herring, Amy Herring, Jeff Chester, Otis Hughes and Patty McLaughlin. Since forming in 2010, they’ve managed to release 10 EPs and LPs combined.

JC Quinn was an actor from NYC with many film and television credits, including “Barfly”, “the Abyss”, “Visionquest” and countless others. He moved to Charlotte in the late 1990s to be closer to his grandchildren. We met at a downtown watering hole called Cafe 521, owned and operated by his good friend from New York, Peter Herrero. That’s where I met JC, along with many other actors, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Bernadette Peters, etc.. They would always stop at the café when in town to visit their good friend Peter,” says Jason Herring.

“JC and I struck up a nice friendship. He was a fan of ours and would come to shows and stand right up front so we could see him. A very lovely man indeed. Sadly, JC died in Mexico while shooting a film a few years ago. I’ve always wanted to pay tribute to him, and we have finally done so with this song. The lyrics are a blend of what we would do with him now if he were still here, and iconic lines from some of his films.”

‘Zsa Zsa’ was recorded at Catalyst Recording and various local studios over a 2+ year stretch following a number of Southeast U.S. tours in promotion of the band’s ‘Queensland Ballroom’ album. This new record touches of several different styles – everything from deep mellow shoegaze and folky ambient to upbeat dancable trip-hop and electronica.

‘Zsa Zsa’ finds the quintet moving further afield of its earlier psych-folk leaning to land on something more akin to the down-tempo approach of Portishead and Zero 7, mixed with early 4AD action. That later is in no small part due to the return of band collaborator, producer John Fryer (too many A-list credits to list here), and new Mystery Plan friend Ian    Masters, former bassist-vocalist of influential British shoegazers Pale Saints.
