Where it all began. Our first real love. As a live acoustic duo we take music’s greatest (and latest) songs and give them our own unique flavour, providing cruisy vibes and loved-up feels perfect for your wedding ceremony, reception or event.
The beauty of a live wedding band is that our sound can easily evolve. We love to swap our acoustic guitars for sexy electrics. We can sit down and stomp out some lazy live bluesy wedding music, or become a rockin' live wedding band to get the dancefloor loaded.
As much as you may love live music (we hear ya!) there comes a time at most parties where an acoustic duo or even live wedding band won't cut it. Luckily, we’re happy to take the cue & seamlessly switch from wedding singers to your d-floor appeasing wedding DJ!
Yep, our very own Andy is a civil marriage celebrant. As your marriage celebrant, his natural, relaxed, warm, reverent and easy-going style he'll take care of your wedding legalities while creating a modern, original and thoroughly enjoyable ceremony.
Years of lounge room strumming followed by years of pub jamming, turned Jake & Andy into the full-sounding eclectic acoustic/electric duo that they are today. Leaving the ‘public’ live music scene behind a handful of years ago, Jake & Andy now exclusively provides live wedding music for ceremonies and wedding receptions, as well as live entertainment for private events & corporate functions on the Gold Coast, in Byron Bay, Brisbane and further abroad.
Jake & Andy the acoustic duo is renowned for their tight yet relaxed, original sound – playing songs that everyone knows and loves, the J&A way – and their impressive genre & era jumping playlist. Jake & Andy play a host of modern events, where music & ‘atmosphere’ is crucial, and constantly impresses wedding & corporate function audiences of all ages.
As an acoustic duo Jake & Andy’s combine acoustic guitar rhythms with a vocal mix ranging from gritty to soulful, throw in some tasteful lead guitar licks, a smattering of blues-harmonica, then a cocktail of foot-tapping bass-stomp & tambourine, for added groove-ability and sex appeal.
From there J&A evolves as an event requires – acoustic guitars give way to sexy electrics, before they morph into your event or wedding DJ to bring the night home with a bang.
Thank you so much guys! We're so stoked we picked you to soundtrack our wedding day. You succeeded in making the mood exactly how we wanted it... chilled, but fun! We had such a wonderful time & everyone commented on what a great celebration it was, so thank you for making it that!
Booking Jake and Andy was by far the best decision we made in planning our wedding. The atmosphere that the boys created was incredible; not a single person was sitting by the evening! In addition to being totally professional, responsive, and easy to work with, this duo brought our wedding to another level with their upbeat personalities and ability to read the crowd. Our guests have not stopped raving about how much fun they had and how phenomenal Jake and Andy were. We highly recommend them.
After hearing rave reviews from other weddings, we just had to see what all the fuss was about. And we are so glad we did! You guys created the perfect atmosphere, relaxed but elegant. So chilled out. You had everything under control the whole day, with the perfect combination of chilled out mingling music to funky dance floor bangers (and what bangers they were haha). We can't thank you enough for creating the perfect soundtrack for our perfect day. You guys were amazing. Our only regret in the craziness of the night is we didn't get to tell you all this in person. Thank you so much!!!!
Thank you Jake & Andy. I have recommended you to so many couples who are getting married since you played at our wedding almost 3 years ago. Our guests are still talking about how good you were!! Just superb. Thank you guys!!
We got married on Saturday and had these lovely guys play at the reception. They were the perfect addition to a casual daytime wedding, with the last set pulling everyone onto the dance floor for a good old fashioned boogie, despite the fact it was only 3 in the afternoon with the sun beaming in and nowhere to hide. Awesome job guys, thank you thank you thank you!
On behalf of Swann Insurance, I would like to pass on a huge thank you for entertaining delegates at our conference held at the Royal Pines Resort in July 2015. The weather wasn’t all that accommodating, yet you both soldiered on, much to the appreciation of guests. You’re both true professionals and we look forward to working together again in the near future.”
We asked Jake & Andy to play at our wedding after hearing a few of their live gigs and falling in love with their acoustic sound. Jake & Andy were very professional from the first email till the end of our party. They brought all the required equipment and liaised with the venue directly so we could just relax. Everyone loved their repertoire of songs and they really got the party going. When asked for few extra songs, the boys did it smiling. I would highly recommend Jake & Andy for anyone after a fun party!
