About The Jack Oscar Band

You won't find a more energetic and professional bunch of musicians guaranteed to get your guests up and dancing the night away
Wedding band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The Jack Oscar band consists of 4 of the most seasoned and experienced professional musicians active in the north east today. With over 30 years’ experience each and the majority of the band having played together for over a decade, the standard of the performances and quality of the sound is simply incredible. All the guys have extensive function, theatre, festival and wedding experience and between them also undertake studio session work to internationally acclaimed artistes and provide professional tuition, alongside releasing original music on a regular basis. Music is definitely not a hobby for this band! Given the range of experience, you’ll not be surprised to learn that the repertoire and genre mix available is massive, literally from the Lumineers to the Bee Gees to Catfish and the Bottlemen and AC/DC – everything is possible! As a wedding party band, we have a standard set with a mix of styles to suit all ages and tastes, playing in a tried and tested order to ensure that your party atmosphere grows through the evening and the dancefloor is always full, ending with a rip-roaring medley of singalong classics to get everyone involved. That said, we also regularly take specialist bookings for themed weddings based around Classic Rock or Indie or 80’s pop so the choice really is yours! We have full touring quality PA system and lightshow and are just as happy performing in formal shirts and waistcoats as we are in laid back rockshow gear if you’re having a more relaxed event. PLI is included to MU standard £10million and all our gear is PAT tested (of course).

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Absolutely. It may be the case that one or two of the guys have other commitments but Jack will always be there! If we need to substitute one or more of the backing musicians, we will always try to let you know in advance and all of our 'deps' are seasoned professionals

Do you have different line-up options?

For the full band, it is Drums, Bass, 2x Guitar and Laid and backing vocals. We also offer acoustic solo and duo performances.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Our tour quality PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 3m by 4m space to perform

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you.


From customers:

Philip V, 2 years ago

Really enjoyed your set the guests loved the music. Oasis was great and enjoyed Chasing cars. (10 / 10)

Colin N, 2 years ago

We recently enjoyed a wonderful weekend, celebrating a significant birthday with our closest friends in a large country house in Cumbria. Jack was a pleasure to work with, his professionalism through the planning stage helped make the weekend a success. His performance was perfectly judged for the evening and the room. His playlist was ideal for the audience and the occasion, meeting with the approval of young and old alike. Jack is a talented musician and in the words of my 9 year old..a great singer. If the opportunity arises I would definitely book Jack again. He may even play some U2. (10 / 10)
