The whole experience from booking through to the night of the event itself was fantastic. The band were friendly, accommodating, interested in our function and really easy to deal with. Their musicianship and entertainment value were incredible and everyone at the event was raving about them, and definitely some more bookings are in the pipeline! Thank you so much!

Congratulations on an amazing show. You really know how to put spectacular fizz into thousands of people. The musical arrangements are superb, the timing and presentation is a joy to behold and the energetic insanity of the front man is jaw dropping and wonderful fun. Brilliant!"

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The Jager Maestros have performed at venues across the UK from sports clubs and weddings to huge bierkellers and music festivals. The band has also travelled regularly to Ireland and Abu Dhabi.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

The band once performed on 'Eight out of Ten Cats does Countdown'.

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

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have a pool of very experienced 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

The options we offer are as follows: 5 Piece brass Quintet - Perform Traditional Oompah music as background music 6 Piece - By adding a drum kit the band can perform a range of cover songs in addition to your traditional Oompah music. 7-9 Piece - Full show including audience participation and game lead by our front man.

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.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually require around 30 minutes to set up and sound check. If we are performing without amplification then this could be as little as 5 minutes.

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 PA and lighting system is included in your quote. We usually require a minimum of 6 by 3m 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. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
