The band got to know each other while studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, and a little while later formed The Skip Jacks! This band are a reliable and professional 5 piece, with Nicole’s effortless and beautiful vocals backed up by the awesome talents of Alex on drums, Jake on guitar, Jack on Bass and Alex on keys

You can probably tell from the videos that these guys will be bringing the happy vibes to your event, and getting all your guests in the spirit of things! They’ll be playing a floor filling mix of popular modern hits as well as the classics that everyone knows and loves.

An Ideal Festival Wedding Band

The Skip Jacks can offer two very distinct styles for your event. Firstly their folk style, which is perfect for easing the audience in, and then later they will let loose with their electric set. Having these two styles gives the variety to any wedding or party to make it feel like a mini festival of your own!

Their folk set includes songs from bands such as Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, and Paulo Nutini, but also some that you might not be quite expecting! Ever heard a folk version of ’Shake it Off’ by Taylor Swift? You won’t be disappointed! The bands electric set is a hand picked a repertoire of classic and contemporary chart hits, which they play in their own upbeat way.
