Aside from the obvious reasons, don’t forget that although we’ve been on the scene for almost a decade as a band, we’re still of your generation‐ yes ‐you who are on the road to being married.
That means that we get exactly what you mean when you say that you want that “00s millennium whopper” that was a hit back in the day because that was our day too.
It’s pretty rare to find this double-sided coin, a band with our experience but also our fortunate position to be in tap and tune with the current generation of to‐be‐weds.

We just want to say a big thank you to Jaker & Co for playing at our Wedding. They were simply amazing and really got the party going. Their energy was incredible and they went into banging song after song ! All our guests were so impressed with them and commented how their vocals and skills were amazing. They were very good at reading the crowd and played the choons they wanted to hear. We had such a great night and enjoyed every moment-needless to say there were sore feet from dancing so much the next day! We would highly recommend them- You will not be disappointed!
