JumpStart is Northern California and Northern Nevada's premiere party-rock-pop, wedding and corporate band. JumpStart has traveled throughout California and Nevada performing for top corporate events, weddings, nightclubs and parties. With their high-energy and dynamic shows, JumpStart specializes in accurate performances and flawless renditions of the best party/rock/wedding dance songs of the 70’s, 80’s, 90's and beyond and cover a wide range of music from Journey to Billy Idol to Michael Jackson to AC/DC to Lady Gaga, Pink and beyond. Their top musicianship and showmanship result in a six-piece band that utilizes a wide range of vocalists and instrumentation to create a sound that is full, complete and totally rockin'! And everything you hear is played 100% live by the musicians on stage—no recordings or backing tracks are used!


Why do you need to JumpStart Your Party? Well, if all you want to do is dance, then you can hire a DJ. If all you want to do is get up on stage, you can rent a karaoke machine or play “Guitar Hero”. If all you want to do is see a great stage performance, it might be best to simply play a Live-In-Concert DVD, But if you want to do ALL of those things, then you need JumpStart to JumpStart Your Party or Wedding Reception.


Every JumpStart performance is insurance that YOUR specific needs are attended to. From the band's fast and courteous load-ins to the professional and complete sound and lighting equipment to the set lists customized for your event to the dress and attire of the band, every effort is made by JumpStart to assure that your wedding reception or party is the success you need it to be. Whether it is a casual affair, a formal event, or a specialized “theme” party, JumpStart comes appropriately attired. If needed, we will “MC” your event and will provide appropriate DJ-style dance music to play during the band’s break. If desired, the band is available to play a “cocktail set”, and your special songs can be learned and performed by the band upon request.


JumpStart is Northern California and Northern Nevada’s premiere party-rock band specializing in getting the dance floor packed and the audience involved in the show. Every JumpStart performance is perfectly suited to the client’s needs. Every aspect of your evening’s entertainment will be attended to. In addition, JumpStart travels with over $25,000 in top-of-the-line sound and lighting equipment in order to provide the most aurally and visually entertaining show possible.
JumpStart performances have been routinely described as “a non-stop party”, “uniquely entertaining” and “the most fun we’ve ever had with a live band”.


JumpStart is professional and easy to work with, and the band has a long-standing reputation for their ability to work closely with the coordinators of every event so that no details are left untouched. A special “wedding package” is available where the band makes sure every part of your special day is accompanied by the appropriate music and mood. Call today to JumpStart your next corporate function, club event, reunion, private party, wedding, convention or special event. Read less

JumpStart added so much to our wedding ceremony and reception. They are an amazing collaboration of extremely talented, great spirited, non-attitude band members. They knew exactly what to play to fit the festive mood of our event! Literally, every song they played had people running to pack the dance floor. I am 100% satisfied with their performance. They are worth every penny and then some. They even played for the ceremony which was an added bonus. Everyone was so touched by their rich and soulful voices. Stan did an excellent job at MC- ing the event as well. He is a charismatic speaker and knows how to organize and time things well. This was a great asset to the evening. Added bonuses included a lot of audience participation such as having the bridesmaids jump on stage and play tambourines and sing, a solo song they let me sing with them, and letting my dad play harmonica and sing a blues tune! What fun. I highly recommend this band if you want a truly magical experience that great music can deliver. I recently attended two other receptions. One had a DJ. It was good but did not have the excitement or personal touch that LIVE entertainment delivers, especially GREAT live entertainment like JumpStart!! The other reception didn't have music at all. It was very mellow. All there was to do was talk for hours and eat. The right music and dancing adds so much more! They are truly awesome!! I will book them with out a doubt again any chance I get!

JumpStart was amazing at my wedding. Their attention to all our little details really made our party special, not to mention that all their individual talent is amazing! Their new female vocalist has an amazing voice. I was so lucky to be able to hire them! With their blow up plastic guitars for the audience, incorporating my guests, and keeping the party going...we had so much fun. Thank you thank you thank you! We didn't have to worry about a thing, such professionals!

We had an outrageously great time with Jumpstart at our wedding in July 2010! Not only was the band extremely accomodating to our needs and requests, they can really rock!! All of our guests gave us great reviews of the band and the venue staff did, too!! The only negative thing is that we live in Cleveland, and we may never get a chance to see them play again!

We hired JumpStart for our wedding. I can't count how many people came up to me, including other wedding staff, and asked me where I found this awesome band. Many people also told me that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and I honestly attribute most of that to JumpStart and their high level of energy and ability to pick the right song at the right time. The dance floor honestly stayed packed from start to finish. We will definately hire them again for our next party or event! Thanks again Stan and the rest of the group. You guys ROCK!

They were great at our wedding. We had a few guests that I've never seen dance, and they were up dancing, and having a good time. This is a huge accomplishment.
People were on the dance floor all night, and Jumpstart kept the crowd engaged.
Most importantly, they sounded great. Couldn't have asked for a better band!!

JumpStart most certainly deserves their reputation as the best event band in the Sacramento area. Their whole operation is well practiced, extremely professional and very easy to plan with. Stan, their organizer, was very understanding and helpful in the months before our wedding and delivered on everything he promised on our big day. The energy in their act was infectious and genuine and their music was perfect for our crowd, so much so that the only two places people went during our reception were the bar and the dance floor. They produced the best performance I've ever witnessed at a public event, let alone a wedding, and I give them my highest recommendation to anyone who is lucky enough to book them.

JumpStart kept everyone dancing all night at our wedding! We have received so many compliments on how great they were. Our dance floor was like a sauna, I just couldn't believe that everyone kept dancing considering how hot it was, but JumpStart kept them going! They were a really fun, entertaining band, they love getting the bridal party up on stage and really play to the crowd. They weren't always the most responsive during the wedding planning process, but they really brought it the day of our wedding!
