I’ve booked Jake and Ian to host a charity event for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital the event was simply amazing from start to finish. Ian was instrumental in supporting this charity event with lots of great ideas and suggestions he really did give me the inspiration I needed to get this event off the ground.

On the actual evening itself both Jake and Ian turned up sorted everything out and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The evening was a roaring success with some amazing tunes that were sang by Jake and he’s incredible vocals . The crowd absolutely love the night and I had so many people Commenting on how amazing they both were.

I cannot recommend Jake and Ian enough they really are two lovely guys Who happened to be extremely talented. I would not hesitate again in booking them in fact I cannot wait to host another event so that I can book them again!! Thank you for everything you guys did you are both amazing

We celebrated our joint 40th Birthday party on Saturday night with Jake & Ian. Wow! They are simply fabulous - their music was exactly what we wanted, and they oozed charisma with our guests. Jake's voice is so amazing, at first people actually thought it was Sam Smith on a record rather than a live singer...
Ian has the most calm wonderful nature when I had a few pre-party panics. We would recommend them without any hesitation and hope that we will see them play again very soon.

Jake and Ian are simply superb!
On cold dark Wednesday night in January their music not only got the party going, they lifted the whole roof!

They took the time to understand what we wanted from our evening and exceeded on every single expectation.
An array of music to suit all tastes, amazing musicians and top blokes!

Will definitely be booking them again!
Thanks guys!

If you need a Band for a Wedding or Party, you need to check out these guys. We used Jake & Ian for our wedding in August and they were absolutely amazing!

They literally made the day from the minute the service was over they had everyone up singing and dancing (even before the meal) with a real variance of music, from old 60’s classics, soul to current pop and dance tunes.

Jake and Ian, thank you for making our day truly magical, you are simple amazing, and we couldn’t have asked for more…..Thanks you , G & J xxx

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Thank you Gemma, it's the first time one of our live videos went viral! Cheers for booking us and what an amazing setting you had. Best wishes to you and Jamie. J&I x

Excellent. Ian kept in touch throughout the booking procedure and up to the event. He dealt with all my daft questions, was helpful and courteous. All my guests enjoyed the music and asked where the band was from. I would recommend them for any event.

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Thank you Julie, what a great evening! J&I x

These two brilliant musicians made our wedding day so, so special! We had many nice comments about them both, sound-wise they put all the bands we've seen to shame and they are modern! From the communication to seeing them get 150 people dancing and singing was just brilliant, we look forward to future parties and seeing you both again.

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Thanks both for taking the time to leave a review, we had a great time and thanks for the hospitality. J&I X

I hired the Jake and Ian Band for my 40th Birthday and they delivered a sound everyone couldn't quite believe, the singer Jake is an amazing singer and Ian on piano is brilliant. Everyone was on the dancefloor, and they play music that is modern - if you need a band, snap them up. They took another 3 bookings during my Birthday party, you guys owe me some commission!

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Pleasure to play for your Birthday, we loved it. Your friends have great taste like you Jane! :) Can't wait to see you at the other events in Cheshire and thanks for taking the time to drop us a line. J&I X

Thank you both for making our day so special. My only regret is that Martin and I didn't have the time to absorb the talent on show during the wedding breakfast, but definitely heard it resonate through the marquee! Our guests loved you guys and remarked on how beautiful it was.

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
We had a great time, you chose some beautiful songs as a backdrop to the wedding and it was a privilege to play and sing them for you. Delighted your guests enjoyed it as much as we did. J&I x

Jake and Ian have played at two weddings that we have attended in the past year, including for my daughter. They are friendly and have a great sound. You couldn't really ask for much more.

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Cheers Bob! It was a pleasure and a fab day. J&I.

Pleasure to leave a review for them. Two great guys (looked very dapper too!) that created the ambience we wanted, sounded amazing and took the time to learn two special songs we wanted. I'd happily recommend them to anyone.

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Jenny and Sam, thanks for taking the time to leave feedback for us. Thank you and look forward to seeing you both very soon... J&I x

Jake and Ian played following our wedding during our outside reception drinks and on the evening. They were brilliant and we received a lot of compliments on them from our guests.

They were very responsive in the planning and lead up to the event, adaptable to where they played and set the perfect vibe throughout the day. Thank you for your talent and making our day so special - and an unforgettable first dance!

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment replied:
Thank you Faye, we loved every minute of it too! J&I x

Jake and Ian - Acoustic and Party Entertainment Q&A

Company Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

We enjoy performing and every event we attend at is different. The best feeling is seeing people join in, dance and have fun, creating treasured memories for our clients and the occasion. We also love playing in some of the most stunning places in the UK from beautiful halls, hotels to castles!

What inspired you to start your own business?

We are both business professionals away from music, but enjoy production, performing and creating music.
From a live performance perspective:
We wanted to offer a better sound, better vocals, a more contemporary feel and we felt bands were playing the same tired old songs such as 'Play That Funky Music' and 'Mustang Sally'. As most music is produced electronically in the charts, we hear a lot of bands at premium functions that sound dated, like they're building a shed and often can't capture the right feel and energy of modern music.
From a DJ perspective:
We've been very disappointed with the standard of DJs at recent events. We've encountered those using CDs only so can't do requests, those who talk over every song and still play Agadoo, and those that turn up with gear that sounds like a song coming out of two potatoes at each end of the stage! So now we do it ourselves in-between our sets. One band, one contact and everything covered from ceremony, cocktails, wedding breakfast, reception or corporate party. We've got you covered.
We want to freshen it all up, sound better, excite a crowd on a dance-floor and create the best memories. Only live music can do that and people are really connecting with what we are doing.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose us because our reviews are great, and we are thankful to our clients who share feedback about us following their event. Without sounding over confident, you'll find Jake's vocals and energy unrivalled having previously been signed to EMI and having toured the world with the best vocal coaches and musicians, you have a young but talented team in place for your event, with Ian classically trained in music and music production too.
You'll find our sound has variety, is contemporary and offers superb production and sound for your occasion. We provide a set that will put a smile on people's faces, we can offer a beautiful acoustic sound every wedding needs as guests mingle and enjoy their day early afternoon or evening. We will 100% also get the party started with a high energy set with full PA and full backing. This makes us versatile to your requirements and we'll create that energy a dance-floor needs.
Jake has a superb voice and supported by Ian on piano/keyboards/guitar playing live in addition to backing tracks - we can adapt to the needs of our client and can be trusted to set-up discreetly, turn up and be on time!
We want to make the experience fun for clients to help plan their occasion, ensuring it works for all guests and goes with a bang. You'll find us wanting to get to know you, your song requirements and creating an occasion to remember!
