About Jack

Jack Austin 's profile picture
Guitarist
Beccles

I took the leap into the professional scene in 2010 after a 6 month trip playing in New Orleans - and I've never looked back. I've had contracts as resident soloist in two hotels and various bars, along with years of experience playing for wedding guests, birthdays parties, corporate events and more. Adding live music to your event helps to create a unique, memorable experience. I'll tailor the music to meet your needs, and use my experience to create a tasteful ambience for your special occasion. - I'm versatile, performing both indoors and out. I use high quality industry equipment and I also have a portable battery amp in case there is no power supply. (And I don't take up too much space either) I enjoy performing in all environments - from stage act to the bridal walk, or simply complimenting a background ambience while guests relax and chat. - Added to this site are just a few of the many testimonials I've received during my career so please take a look and feel confident in my professionalism and ability. - I may be open to negotiation on my fee, for example if it's an off peak event or repeat booking, so please feel free to make any enquiries and I'll try my best to accommodate you. - I have full Public Liability Insurance, and my equipment has been P.A.T. tested.- Also available as a duo and trio whether it's saxophone, keys, bass or drums - whatever suits your needs. Just contact me for more details. Thank you, Jack Austin.

I was so delighted to be able to book Jack to help me celebrate my birthday. His communication throughout the booking process was excellent and his music was absolutely perfect for my event. Many of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed his music which created a lovely chilled vibe. He was friendly and professional and is an extremely talented musician who I would definitely recommend without any hesitation,

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
