About Jack

Singing guitarist
Beccles
Jazz guitarist and vocalist. Solo - Trio band. 8 years professional experience. Over 200 bookings in 2017. Own transport and insurance.

Although I've been absoring and playing music my whole life I took the leap into the professional scene in 2010 after a 6 month long trip playing in New Orleans - and I've never looked back since! Nowadays I'm a resident soloist at two prestigious hotels in Norfolk as well as a regular performer at several restaurants and pubs throughout East Anglia. In 2017 alone I've been booked for more than 200 performances and I aim to make 2018 even better! Adding live music to your event creates a unique experience. I can tailor the music to meet your needs and use my professional experience as a guitarist and singer to create the perfect ambiance on the day. - I am able to learn new songs fast - even at short notice if there is something specific you want to hear on the day. - I'm very versatile performing both indoors and out. I use the best industry equipment available and I also have a portable battery amp in case there is no power supply. - I am comfortable performing in all environments ie. as the bride walks down the aisle as well as adding a background ambience during the wedding breakfast or drinks reception. - I have also performed at many other types of social events over the years from birthday parties to corporate events and always manage to fulfill the clients requests. - I have a weekly residence at a city gastro pub and regular performances at 5 star hotels in the area. - Added to this site are just a few of the many testimonials I've received over years so please take a look. - I am open to negotiation on my fee if it's an off peak/season event so please feel free to make any enquries and I'll always do my best to accommodate you. - Also available as a trio, whether it's saxophone, violin or another singer - whatever suits your needs! Plus over the years I have aquired many contacts ranging from photographers, videographers caterers and DJ's and can arrange up to a 5 piece jazz band. Please contact me for more details. Many thanks, Jack Austin.

Lovely to meet you on Saturday, and more importantly hearing your music. We thoroughly enjoyed having you around and many of our friends said how much they enjoyed your playing. So a big thank you from us – especially as you took time out of your holiday to be with us! Alex Cracker (Private party) 10/10

We booked Jack for my birthday party in one of the function rooms at Norwich Cathedral, and we were so glad that we did! He arrived bang on time, was ready within minutes and created the perfect atmosphere instantly. We didn’t give him a playlist, we just told him the occasion and the venue, to which he matched his music perfectly. Everybody commented on the fabulous music and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for any function! Jack is a very competent guitarist, dressed for the occasion and we can’t thank him enough! Helen Martin 10/10
