Downtime is a professional band in which each member has more than 10 years of performing experience. We play at weddings, corporate events and private parties. Being based out of St. Louis, allows us to travel throughout the Midwest very easily. Our goal is to provide fun and professional musical entertainment of all genres to all audiences. With Downtime’s wide variety of music, high energy, and quality sound, everyone will be sure to have a great time.



The variety of our comprehensive song list allows us to satisfy any audience. We are willing to learn, rehearse and perform up to 2 songs that can be included throughout the special night (such as the bride/groom first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.). Music will be provided during all band breaks to ensure continuous listening pleasure. The break music list can be collaboratively decided upon to supply the desired blend of musical diversity that best fits the special event. The band also offers a continuous band option where the band does not take a break. This can be requested for an additional cost. Emceeing adaptations will be made at the client’s discretion, as well as band size, instrumentation and acoustical levels to accommodate any facility. Included will also be a meeting up to a month prior to your event with Jon. Dance lights are an option at the request of the client. The group’s standard attire is a formal tuxedo for weddings and corporate parties, but casual wear is also available upon request. With the vast selection of options, Downtime guarantees complete satisfaction.

Downtime offers many different options for the variety band. Alterations to any of the following groups can be made to best fit any wedding reception or event.
7 Piece Group (Male & Female Vocals, Keyboard, Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Saxophone) 8 Piece Group (Standard Group Plus Saxophone & Trumpet) Additional Female Vocalist can be added to any size group Percussion/Background Vocals can be added to any size group Read less

We absolutely loved the Downtime Band! Our guests loved them too - we received so many compliments on how great the band was. They are incredibly professional and easy to work with. Plus, they kept the energy level high throughout the reception that most of our guests stayed until the very end which was a lot of fun! I definitely recommend them for any reception or event! I'm so glad we chose the Downtime Band! Our reception wouldn't have been as much fun without them!

We couldn't be happier with our decision to have Downtime Band perform at our wedding reception. From the initial contract through the final song, everything went very smoothly. Jon was very organized, easy to work with and very professional at all times. Throughout the evening and the weeks following, we received MANY compliments from our guests regarding Downtime Band. It's a true testament to the band that our dance floor was packed all night and up to the conclusion of the final song.

My wife planned and executed a perfect surprise at the beginning of the reception by singing a song to me. Jon went above and beyond to obtain her guitar, tune it and have it ready for her. This is just one example of their commitment to us. The music was excellent, and the energy was high through the last song. As part of the contract, the band even learned two new songs for us, which were used for the father/daughter and mother/son dances.

Thank you to Downtime Band for your help in making our wedding reception very special! We most definitely recommend Downtime to anyone that is considering.

Downtime band was such a hit at our wedding! Everyone kept approaching my husband and I to compliment us on the band. One of my great aunts said she normally leaves around 9, but stayed until 11 because she loved the band so much! They also were very accommodating when we asked them to do a dance including only married couples the night of the wedding. The could have easily said no but were gracious enough to accommodate this last minute request. It turned out to be a great hit and we were able to see my great aunt and uncle on the dance floor dancing and celebrating 67 years of marriage. The music was fantastic and totally set the atmosphere and mood of our wedding. Jon was incredibly helpful and answered all of our questions and also helped us with suggestions of when to cut the cake, throw the garter, etc. Since this is the first (and hopefully last) time my husband and I will be married we needed some help learning the ropes and Jon was there to answer any questions we had. Their website was also great. The song list made it easy to figure out what songs we wanted for different parts of the reception and the promotional video was a great tool. It allowed us not only to discover what the band had to offer, but to show off to our friends before the wedding to give them a little taste of what our reception would be like. The only problem is that their promotional video just doesn’t do justice to how great they really are, but you just have to see them in person to find that out! Overall, they enhanced our wedding day and we were so happy that we chose them!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Downtime! Not only is Jon absolutely awesome to work with (plus, he responds to emails with lighting speed- which was especially amazing given that we live on the East Coast and were planning our wedding remotely), but the band itself was so talented it was ridiculous! Picking our band was probably the most important wedding decision for us and we read reviews/watched videos for about 15 other local bands before making our decision. Hands down, Downtime is the absolute best. They are surprisingly reasonably priced, but more importantly, are just hugely talented musicians. The two main vocalists (one male and one female) were ABSOLUTELY amazing and people were commenting all night about how incredible they sounded. When we started our first dance (the first vocal song of the night), we both looked at each other and immediately said: "wow, they are REALLY REALLY good." I was so worried about having a cheesy "wedding band" but Downtime could not be further from that. They are an incredible, talented, energetic group of musicians who (luckily) perform at weddings. Definitely the best decision we could have made. Thank you, Jon and Downtime for making our wedding so amazing!

I can't tell you how impressed my Wife and I were with Downtime Band. The wedding guests haven't stopped talking about the band. Everything from the first contact to discuss pricing, to the planning phase, to the music itself was absolutely wonderful. I worked with Jon to set everything up. He met with us to plan the evening and talk about our expectations. It is safe to say Downtime Band exceeded every one of those expectations. The jazz trio during dinner was excellent but the music from the seven piece band for the actual dancing portion of the evening, couldn't have been better. Wow, The energy from the band was contagious and the dance floor was full the whole night. What really stood out to me was how willing the band was to work with us to make sure our night was perfect. They learned several additional songs ranging from 311, to Kid Cudi to Luther Vandross and they all sounded great. Thank you so much.

Thanks again,

Kyle and Katy Kijowski

The Downtime Band traveled all the way from St. Louis to Omaha for our wedding and truly exceeded all expectations! Their high energy sets sounded amazing and kept our guests of all ages on the dance-floor until the very end of the evening and received rave reviews from all who attended. Jon was wonderful to communicate with throughout the entire planning process and helped us coordinate last minute schedule changes due to weather on our wedding day with such ease. The Downtime Band helped to make our celebration incredibly special and we are so grateful. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect reception! We are sure they will be back in Omaha again soon ; ) Thank you Jon and team!!!

From the moment I spoke with Jon at Downtime, I felt like he cared about the people he was working with as well as his music and his music. He got back to me promptly each time I needed to speak with him, and was never arrogant, or impatient with my many questions like other bands I spoke with. Jon was a team player when it came to working with our wedding planner, and the venue of the wedding. He not only did not cause problems, he was flexible, and willing to do whatever we needed in order to make our daughter's wedding special. The band looked professional, their voices were incredible, and they could read the crowd to perfection in order to know what songs to play when. They respected what song lists my daughter wanted and did not want played, and everyone kept asking us all night who the band was! You cannot go wrong with booking Downtime!
