Services From The Jack Oscar Band in Newcastle Upon Tyne
The Jack Oscar band consists of 4 of the most seasoned and experienced professional musicians active in the north east today.
With over 30 years’ experience each and the majority of the band having played together for over a decade, the standard of the performances and quality of the sound is simply incredible.
All the guys have extensive function, theatre, festival and wedding experience and between them also undertake studio session work to internationally acclaimed artistes and provide professional tuition, alongside releasing original music on a regular basis.
Music is definitely not a hobby for this band!
Given the range of experience, you’ll not be surprised to learn that the repertoire and genre mix available is massive, literally from the Lumineers to the Bee Gees to Catfish and the Bottlemen and AC/DC – everything is possible!
As a wedding party band, we have a standard set with a mix of styles to suit all ages and tastes, playing in a tried and tested order to ensure that your party atmosphere grows through the evening and the dancefloor is always full, ending with a rip-roaring medley of singalong classics to get everyone involved. That said, we also regularly take specialist bookings for themed weddings based around Classic Rock or Indie or 80’s pop so the choice really is yours!
We have full touring quality PA system and lightshow and are just as happy performing in formal shirts and waistcoats as we are in laid back rockshow gear if you’re having a more relaxed event. PLI is included to MU standard £10million and all our gear is PAT tested (of course).
As a solo act, Jack can provide over 2 hours of music for any occasion and has years of experience performing in all kinds of venues. He has a wide range of songs and styles in his repertoire and is an experienced solo performer best appreciated in an intimate setting.
Jack provides full PA and lights and an iPod music service between sets if required.

Jack was absolutely fantastic, from moment of booking he has communicated everything so well.
And the voice, well what can I say! Brilliant singer, it was a small dinner party we held and Jack had the perfect balance of music & chat that suited our guests and complimented the evening.
Fantastic night! Thanks
