Outstanding band, fantastic repertoire played by incredibly talented musicians. Their high-quality arrangements of the classics was a particular highlight. The band had people dancing all night, ending with everyone on the dance floor. We even decided not to play our on pop/dance playlist afterwards as the band were a clear high to end the night on. Would highly recommend!

The Jumping 5 brought a fun, high-energy sound to our evening wedding reception and got our international crowd onto the dance floor! We had several comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the music and that it was something different. We really appreciated that the band's clothes and even their microphones had that 'vintage feel' to help set the tone. The booking process with Warble was straightforward, the band were easy to communicate with. After a long search for the right wedding band, we're really glad we hired The Jumping 5 and can fully recommend them for wedding parties!

    The band comes as standard with a small PA for events of up to 150 guests at our base price. Any events larger than this, we would strongly encourage adding an engineer with a larger PA at the client's discretion. The band also provides basic stage lighting in our standard quote. We can hire in a larger lighting rig for the stage and dance floor coverage at an extra £150 if a large room. We also reccommend the PA upgrade to our premium package to cater for up to 350 guests if you have a large event. Please ask for a quote.

    We can add a first dance or single request at no extra cost. Any more requests can be discussed.

    DJ Options
    We are happy for the client to plug in their own MP3 player to our system at no charge. Also at no charge we are happy to provide a non-specific party playlist for free if needed. For a bespoke 100% requsted playlist for us to make, we will charge £75. This will be unmixed and unmanned however. For a manned DJ option with bespoke requests and the band to mix the tunes through our iDJ controller decks, we quote £180. This also allows for requests on the night and is a more flexible option.

    Lounge Jazz
    The band can also play earlier on in the day while drinks are served instead of just the party set. The band has a large repertoire of lounge jazz and classic standards. We can provide from a duo to the full standard 5-piece. Please enquire for costs and set lengths.
