About us
Are you organising a wedding, corporate event, party or other function and want a band that will make it a raging success. Then Jumpstart is for you.
We have what it takes to help make your event the best it can be.
In fact, dont rely on us to tell you, here's a couple of direct quotes from two of our many happy clients:
 Jumpstart are an extremely talented and versatile group of musicians and singers, but not only that, they're incredibly generous for donating their time and talent to perform at our Make-A-Wish fundraising ball. They performed songs from an array of different genres and decades to please every single person in attendance and get them up and on the dance floor (and even get their air guitars out!). They are easily one of the most professional bands I've ever come across, but they sure do know how to have fun! Guests were raving about the band and thought they were amazing. I wouldn't hesitate in booking Jumpstart again for any future event and wish them every success. Thank you again Paul, Ros, Geoff, Peter and Anders! - Ana Mrnjaus - Make a Wish Foundation
Jumpstart played at my 30th on December 10 and we were blown away. The best band for your special occasion. They catered for our mixed age group with both new and old hits. Eager to create the perfect night at my party. Friendly energetic group with rounded experiance. There were additional microphones for anyone that wanted to have a sing along. My sister pretended to be a singer and acted the part, so she felt like a star for the night. Everyone commented at the end of the night how great the band was. I was so pleased that I would book them again. A night to remember forever. Thanks Bill - Bill Petrie 
“We had a fantastic time and the band is fabulous. Everybody was up and dancing and was commenting how great the band was and where I got you guys from. The owner of the venue thought you were fantastic as well. I would recommend your band to anyone who is looking for a great time dancing as you had everybody on the dance floor. The Bandeoke was excellent as well and helped to get people to loosen up.
I sure would book you guys again for another function.”  Hanneke
Jumpstart is fun and professional five piece covers band which has a lead female singer, guitarist/vocals, drums, bass and keys/vocals. Our lead singer can sing anything from hard rock to wedding ballads and was the Victorian karaoke champion in 2009! The band plays a high energy mix of hits and dance numbers from the 60s to now.
