Who are Jamtastic?
Jamtastic have the ability to perform in all sorts of shapes and sizes - from a sophisticated dinner jazz trio up to a stonkin' seven piece showband suitable for the most esteemed occasions in the land. The 'core-four' at the heart of Jamtastic are three lively, attractive guys and a stunning girl with simply the best singing voice on the circuit. This is the most flexible line-up of any four piece band producing an amazingly full live sound.
Jamtastic are a fun and seriously funky live professional function band. With a wide repertoire of perfectly selected music from the 60s to the very best of the present day, outstandingly tight musicianship and undoubtedly the finest singers on the London and South of England circuit, Jamtastic - the best band of their size in the UK - bring excitement, variety and pure quality to one of the most enjoyable nights of wedding and function entertainment you are likely to have the pleasure of experiencing.
Jamtastic's lineups are:
four piece - by far the most popular
choice for creating a cost effective, massive yet versatile
sound .. featuring lead female vocals; lead male and additional
backing male vocals; keyboards with keyboard bass; lead and bass
guitars; live drums
five piece - as above but featuring an
additional female or male 'front person' vocalist or energetic
six piece - as four piece but featuring
additional 1 or 2 x female or male 'front person' vocalists and
/ or energetic percussionist
seven piece - the ultimate showband: 4
energetic musicians and 3 front vocalists - awesome!
jazz trio - classic lineup of piano, bass and drums (can
also feature vocals if required) - playing quality versions of
jazz standards for dinner or dancing music ... a popular choice
for the afternoon when a larger line-up is featured in the
bespoke & eight piece and upwards - we can cater for larger line-ups or band sizes to include, for example, an amazingly brass section. This is seriously funky!

"Dear Mark and Jamtastic!
We just wanted to say thanks so, so much for putting on the most spectacular ever performance at our wedding in May.
We had high hopes that you would be great but you ABSOLUTELY BLEW US AWAY AND SURPASSED ALL EXPECTATIONS!
We have had many, many comments from our guests saying you were THE BEST BAND THEY HAD EVER HEARD AND THAT YOU MADE the evening!
Our first dance was perfect and one of our favourite moments of the whole wedding day was at the end of the night when you played Empire State of Mind. We will treasure that forever. The atmosphere was awesome throughout the evening and people are still talking about it now.
We wish you all the best for the future and hope you continue to enjoy the success you deserve"
Vanessa and Paul
Well what can we say?! Jamtastic you were amazing, you did the best job ever!
Everyone has been commenting on how fantastic you were. They have all been asking how we found you!
And we was blown away by your rendition of Percy Sledge 'When a man loves a woman'. But when you said you had learned it just for us in such a short time made it even more special for us. I can honestly say it was just as good as the original version.
You helped to make a great day perfect.
Many many many thanks to all of you."
Sandi & Lee Hatton
We just wanted to thank you and the band for the great music you provided at our daughter's wedding reception on Saturday at the Royal Automobile Club.
The bride and groom were delighted with your sets, and the guests obviously enjoyed the music enormously, and it was the first time we have heard all the dancers at the Club calling for 'one more song' at the end! (And we have been to many dances there.)
Thank you also for being so considerate about the setting up of your equipment, which we were barely aware of - no small feat when there was such a lot of it...
Many thanks again,
Mr & Mrs Steele
"Dear Mark, Ginger, Lynn and Andy
Wow! What can I say? Best wedding band ever!
You gave us and our guests a truly brilliant evening that really caught fire, due to your top class entertainment, outstanding performances, your infectious energy and humour, and the warmth of your rapport with us.
Whenever we remember our wedding, we'll always be grateful for how you gave so much joy to us and our guests. The photos show them having a fabulous time, from the 2 year olds to the 72 year olds! Including the 'non-dancers' like myself!!
And thanks for putting in the "now Mark and married Tori" line into the Police number, and all the other personal touches, like (correctly) guessing that Tori would like the Summer of 69 at the end. And having the final farewell song was a beautiful way of saying goodbye to everyone.
With our grateful thanks, and best wishes"
Mark & Tori, Wedding
I just wanted to send an email thanking you (and indeed the rest of Jamtastic) for putting on an amazing show at our wedding at Sopwell House on Sunday 29th August.
The songs for dancing hit exactly the right note with our guests, many of whom have commented about how impressed they were with you, and how highly you rate compared to other wedding bands they have experienced in the past. Your punctuality, flexibility and ease of communication was also much appreciated, both before and during the day itself.
The day went better than we could possibly have imagined, and you played a huge part in that, so thank you again so much."
Edward and Jennifer, Wedding

Jamtastic, who were absolutely superb on the evening. Their
selection of music was excellent, and they had my colleagues up
on the dance floor all night - everyone was sad to see them
finish and I wished they could have played all night! I would
greatly appreciate if you could pass on my, and the whole
company's, thanks for helping to create a very enjoyable
