Act Profile

The Jacks

The Jacks are a fully professional and versatile wedding/party/function band playing classic dancefloor-fillers from the 50s through to the present day.

All members of the band have extensive experience of playing at weddings, university balls, private parties, charity events, and corporate functions. The band consists of 4 professional and experienced musicians and whereas other bands interchange their members, the The Jacks use the same line up every time.

On lead vocals is Nigel Thomas - a very talented singer and rhythm guitarist. Something that really makes The Jacks stand out from the crowd is that Nigel has an innate ability to recreate the vocal style, intonation and intricacies of the original song where other singers think it's acceptable to sing their own approximation.


The Jacks are totally reliable, punctual, polite and smartly dressed. Onstage they are energetic and entertaining, involving the audience in the performance wherever possible. The band is fully self contained, providing a PA and lighting system for any size marquee, hall, or even outside.

The band travel all over the UK and overseas and will normally play 1 x 45 and 1 x 75 minute sets, but are completely flexible in every way - just ask and I am sure they can sort it!

Perfect for any event,energetic and fantastic musicians, they'll have people dancing from the first song to the last.

Testimonials

The Jacks played at our wedding and were absolutely incredible! They entirely rocked the party and were flexible and a joy to work with. The whole process went really well, we were offered a play list to choose from and true to their word the Jacks stuck to it and mixed all our requests expertly in to two sets that got everyone on the dance floor. We had the most amazing time, I've never seen so many people get on the dance floor and stay there all night long! Thank you for everything.

-Helen


We just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding last night. You were wonderful and everyone kept commenting on how amazing you were. I shall certainly be recommending you to friends :)

-Lauren & Toby Oct 2015


They came highly recommended from a friend of mine who attended a wedding where they played.

-Lauren Jan 2015


"I am writing to say a belated huge thank you for your amazing performance at our wedding at Bovey Castle in December 2017. You really made the night, the dance floor was packed all the time, the songs sounded even better than they did on the website and everyone commented on how fab they thought you were!"
Kate and Ben Davies

I'm attaching a couple of photos, one of your biggest fan of the night who refused to leave the dance floor and another of our friend Charlie joining in with the singing!

'I just wanted to say thank you for a great performance at our Wedding party, Vicky and I had a great time and could not have imagined it would be that good. Absolutely everyone thought you guys were excellent, I believe Danny has actually asked you about doing his wedding next year in Derby.'

Chris Jones, Stratford-upon-Avon [Wedding]

'To all of The Jacks , thanks guys for some fantastic music! Sarah and I really enjoyed it all and we are particularly thankful for you being able to accommodate our last minute requests! We wish you all the best for the future 'THANK YOU!'

Nick & Sarah, London [Wedding]

'To The Jacks - Just wanted to thank you for playing at Jonnie and Alice's wedding. The music you played was superb. Cover bands are ten to a penny, but your stuff was something else. Everybody said how good it was to hear a decent wedding band.'

Ollie Robbins, Isle of Wight [Wedding]

'Hi Nigel (and the other 3 - sorry forgotten your names!). Just a quick message to say thanks so much for playing on Saturday night. We all had a great time (quite clearly!!). I hope you guys enjoyed it too... If anyone asks, we shall be recommending you guys!'

Oli Neasham, Oxford [21st Birthday Party]

Nigel, Now I'm unfortunately back at my desk after a fantastic wedding and honeymoon, I just wanted to thank you guys again for the great sets and all round job you did at our wedding. A load of our guests have commented on how great they thought the band were and myself and Ali, as you could probably tell, had a superb time, so thanks very much. Cheers, Martin.

Martin Gilbert, Essex [Wedding]

Dear Nigel, We've had a great break but sadly we are now back to reality and having to be back in the office,urg! Thank you so much for all your help on the 7th June. We had such a wonderful time and the best day. We are just a bit sad that is all goes so quickly! Also, we are sorry that we totally over ran all our timings and meant that you had a shorter period to play and without a break - sorry to put you through that and hope it wasn't too much. We really appreciated you playing through -oh-..and everyone LOVED you! Thanks again Nigel. It was a delight to have The Jacks play at our wedding and hope you have a great summer. All the best, Katherine and James.

Katherine & James Ward, Warwickshire [Wedding]
