Big Toe & The Jam are here to help you kick off your shoes and shake out the blues on an utterly grand scale.
Brass blistering and deep beats thumping, Big Toe & The Jam whip up big band, swing, R&B, rock, funk, and soul faves with charismatic exuberance.
The classics are all there in ultra-fine form – Sinatra, James Brown, Stevie, Aretha – along with fresh spins on the unexpected. Funked-out Beatles cuts, Paul Simon painted with Merengue-style abandon, Peter Gabriel quirk, Tower of Power fury, Chaka Khan velvet, Blues Brothers grit, and a Disco Extravaganza Medley that will leave you breathless.
Vocalist Paul Dunkirk (original member, The Blenders) and drummer Jamie Scheitel (Sacred Chao, Brat Pack Radio) have merged their respective bags of trickery and assembled a 10-piece, technicolor troupe with infectious appeal. Dunkirk slides deftly between silky-smooth croon and rough-hewn powerhouse, whereas cousin Stephanie shares mic duties with a knockout, steamy style all her own. Scheitel lays out relentlessly rock-steady, dynamic grooves. Horn-section leader Nathan Berry and company have worked up some positively dynamite arrangements, while the remaining cast of exceptionally talented young musical artists will downright indulge your biological imperative to sweat.
So, step right up. Get on in under the big tent. You’re gonna swing. You’re gonna strut. You’re gonna get downright converted. Resistance? Futile. Read less

Big Toe and the Jam was a great band and we were so fortunate to have them at our event. My dad (father of the bride) has played guitar for years and the band invited him to play with them which made the day even more special for us. Jamie and the band were very professional and organized. All of our guests loved them and had a great time!

Post-Wedding review – A+++: We weren't sure if we were going to have the budget for a band, but I am SO glad that we made room for one. If you are looking for an amazing band for your wedding, look no further. Big Toe and the Jam was AWESOME. They kept the dance floor packed from the time they started around 9:45AM all the way until 1:45AM! They are not your typical, trite and stale “wedding band.” We wanted more of a “bar” cover band, as I really wanted that same feeling that I would get going out and listening to awesome cover bands. Well, Big Toe did just that, and then some! Stephanie was my initial contact, and she seemed to excited to work with us that I knew she was going to be so much fun on our wedding day. Paul and Jamie, who are co-leadrs of the band, were great to work with beforehand, making sure we took care of the little details, and they even let me help make the setlist, which was pretty awesome in my book. They also had no problem letting me come up to sing with them during the night (I sing in a cover band), and some of those moments are my favorite, as my family and a lot of my friends have never heard me perform, so that was really special. All of the musicians are amazing, and because they are a 10 piece band you get a huge variety of songs to pick from. My dad LOVES horns, and he really got a kick out of some of the songs they played. They were all so friendly and outgoing, and you could plainly see they love playing together, which translated to the crowd loving them too! I could go on and on about Big Toe, they really were the perfect band for our wedding, and a month later people are still talking about how amazing they were!

This band provided high quality music that appealed to all age groups. Dance floor was packed the whole night. They also were very easy to work with and accommodated our schedule. They made sure to ask lots of questions to understand exactly what we wanted. We also were allowed to request a couple songs that the band learned just for our wedding! These guys are pros and we couldn't have been happier with their service!
