Why hire The Dukes of Circuit Avenue Band?
Good question! First of all, you get the electrifying vocals and dynamic stage presence of Maria Stukey, a veteran of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket private events, parties and weddings. In addition to her work on the Cape & Islands, Maria has opened for Sawyer Brown and Joan Rivers, headlined galas with Jay Leno, and performed for Rod Stewart, Serena Williams, Donald Trump, Shirley MacLaine, William Shatner, and many others.
The live band is driven by the drumming of Jeremy Driesen, a veteran touring and concert drummer with over a decade’s worth of gigs on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket (check out Jeremy’s drumming resume in the About Us section).
The local band is filled out by an A-List of highly-trained professionals from Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and beyond, with an aggregate resume of work with big name artists that covers pop, rock, classic Motown, jazz, rap, reggae, Latin, and everything in between.
The Dukes band care deeply about your private event, function, party or wedding and their attention to musical detail is unrivaled. They see to it that your requested songs are performed flawlessly and with great sensitivity to the original version, making for a show-stopping performance and a spectacular live event.
The Dukes would love to play your wedding or other private event.

Who We Are
Katrina has spent her entire adult life working in live music production, putting her at the musical helm of over 2,000 weddings and other private events on Martha’s Vineyard and elsewhere, including venues ranging from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach to the beaches of the Bahamas. Taking note of every detail, Katrina offers her clients guidance from start to finish and can often be found on site, making sure every musical aspect is executed as planned.
Over the years, Katrina has had experience planning and producing weddings and other private events for clients including Vice President Joe Biden, the Bush family, Donald Trump, Michael Straham, Ali Larter, the Kennedy family, The Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust, The Lois Pope Foundation, and The Jimmy Fund, to name a few.
Katrina played a crucial role in the development of the private events music business on Martha’s Vineyard. Her love of detailed planning led her to a new adventure, working as the real estate lead for President Obama and the First Family’s vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. The coordination effort was a welcome challenge, but her love of music has brought her back to producing live music.
Running is Katrina’s second passion and she is often found in the early hours out on the bike paths of Martha’s Vineyard. When she isn’t working or running, Katrina finds time to travel the world and volunteer in orphanages from Kenya to Bolivia.
Jeremy Driesen has been a working drummer, bandleader and musical director since the age of 13 and has played with artists including Billy Idol, Scandal, Richie Havens, Gary US Bonds, Chuck Berry, Lesley Gore, Peter Noone, Bo Diddley, and Lou Christie. He has performed at pretty much every music venue on Martha’s Vineyard and has also played Carnegie Hall, The Royal Albert Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Three Rivers Stadium, and too many dive bars to mention.
Jeremy has been profiled in The New York Times and Celebrity Access, featured in Real Simple magazine, and has spoken at Harvard Business School, Harvard University, George Washington University, New York University, and Berklee College of Music.
In the corporate world, Jeremy has presented celebrity talent for clients including Time Inc., Samsung, Morgan Stanley, Staples, Lotus IBM, Cantor Fitzgerald, Pepsi, MetLife, and many others.
Aside from business, Jeremy is an avid photographer, has photographed Martha’s Vineyard extensively, and served as a volunteer firefighter in Chilmark. He considers The Ritz in Oak Bluffs to be more or less the center of the universe.
