Kristen Goodman has Entertainment at her very core. She comes from a family full of musicians, producers, artists, and entrepreneurs. As early as Kindergarten, Kristen was singing in choirs, playing the lead in the school musical, and producing her very first shows for a captive family audience in her grandparents’ living room. With ten years of piano lessons, some regional theatre roles, and years of voice-over and on-camera work, Kristen was bound for a career in entertainment and events. In 2001, Kristen relocated to St. Louis and taught herself how to play the acoustic guitar. She has been performing and producing events in the area ever since. On December 1, 2017, Kristen released her much anticipated debut EP Album, I’m Ready, in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 200 friends and fans.

Kristen Goodman currently leads a women’s folk rock tribute band called kg lang which plays on the first Wednesday of the month at Just John. She’s the co-creator of a monthly sing-along at HandleBar called Everyday People which aims to spread love through groovy sing-along tunes. She sings and plays guitar in a band called Ghost Light which specializes in taking favorites from Musical Theatre and adapting them for an acoustic string trio. She sings at weddings and corporate events with Lucas Jack & The Midnight Piano Band. She is a frequent vocalist with the Van Ella Band, and has appeared in the Show-Me Burlesque Festival and other shows from Van Ella Productions. Kristen also plays solo shows, private parties, house concerts, and charity events around town.

A true believer in the importance of gathering communities and creating experiences, Kristen produces events and shows specifically for women, for the LGBTQ community, and for people who like to break out of conventional models. Kristen produces a bi-annual women’s dance called Lucky 11, she’s the co-producer of The Big Gay* Soirée, an epic show and celebration during Pride weekend, and she is the Music Director for immersive theatre experiences and burlesque events like Wonderland. 

With 20 years of restaurant experience and a degree in Business & Marketing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Kristen combines her knowledge of marketing, entertainment, and hospitality to create unforgettable experiences for her patrons. In 2018, she joined the staff at School of Rock in Kirkwood as a Vocal Instructor and Assistant Director for the Performance Program. Kristen is inspired by the next generation of musicians, and enjoys helping young vocalists gain confidence and improve their stage presence. Kristen is a proud resident of St. Louis City.
