Hi, Its Ian here. If you're messaging through, chances are you'll get to me! My brother Jay and I started this humble business as a labour of love, following on from our father's footsteps. We had no idea that a simple request to sing a couple of songs for a friend's wedding ceremony so long ago, would lead us to create a thriving business, one that both Jay and I cherish with each client we meet. Send us a message, we'd love to have a chat!

We offer a wide range or services to help with entertainment.

  • Ceremony Acoustic duo
  • MC Services
  • DJ Services
  • Live Music at Reception (from duo to 7 piece band)
  • Combination DJ and Live music at Reception.  (DJ + duo to 7 piece band)

Every wedding is different, but for the most part, we'll bring all the necessary audio equipment for whatever entertainment you've chosen. This means microphones, both wired and wireless, a speaker system to suit the number of guests you're inviting, and some ambient lighting to set the mood, from background dining to all out partying on the dancefloor. We incorporate set up, pack up and travel times too, so you won't have any surprises. 

We'll arrive at least 2 hours prior to the event starting. We will play 20 minutes of acoustic music before the ceremony starts, and then play

  • Entrance song - 
  • Registry signing song - (usually two selections)
  • Recessional/End of ceremony song

We also are able to cater for Catholic ceremonies, and can sing hymns and mass parts, as well as praise and worship songs.

It's your day, and we're here to make it as seamless and enjoyable as possible.

We'll have a conversation with you to understand the type of music you like, but we also have the experience of 100+ weddings under our belt, and can read the crowd to see what they respond to. If there are songs that are a must play, you can send us a Spotify list, and we'll build out a playlist to support it. Or you can leave the song selection to us and know that we can definitely get the party going, no matter the crowd

We love to jam, and that includes having you or any of your special guests come and join us on the microphone. Imagine an all wedding singalong of Taylor Swift's Love Story to bring your amazing day to a close. Or a special surprise number by you or a guest to really make your night special.

We'll keep the music flowing no matter what happens, and who is on the mic!


Glad you asked! We currently have residency  at a bar in Melbourne's CBD. There, we display our signature brand of RnB and pop covers, including our mashups and rap breakdowns. Send us a message and we'll let you know when we're playing next!

If you're looking for a DJ, DUO and MC that will bring energy and excitement to your wedding, look no further than Jay and Ian! They are an absolute blast to work with, and they will keep your guests entertained and on the dance floor all night! From the moment they arrive, they bring an infectious energy that immediately gets everyone having a great time. Their music selection is fantastic, and they have a great ability to read the crowd and play the perfect songs to keep the energy high. They are charismatic, friendly, and know how to get everyone involved in the party. All of our guests have commented on the MC and music which is reassuring knowing we chose correctly!!

Where do I even begin with Jay Ess Events? These guys are ah-ma-zing!!!! They went above and beyond what any other band would. They offered us to hear them play as a duo and a band multiple times and even took requests... They learnt songs for us and kept in regular contact throughout the whole lockdown situation. They even took the time in the middle of the night to give us a snippet of our song. On the day they were fantastic! As a duo, a DJ, MC and a band they exceed and excelled in every way! All the guests could not stop praising these guys and honestly they made the whole day! I would recommend them time and time again! You guys are phenomenal!

The band was superb! The band had great energy and really interacted with our guests on the dancefloor, even bringing the mike onto the dancefloor for guests to have a bit of karaoke! Jay also MC’d our wedding on extremely short notice (10 mins out) and did a fantastic job. Even family members who didn’t understand English commented saying that Jay seems so engaged that they felt compelled to laugh along with his jokes! I first saw the band perform at my cousin’s wedding and knew we had to book them in, so were delighted they were available. They performed throughout our ceremony, canapes and throughout the night, and they’re pricing is very competitive for what they were able to deliver. Have already recommended them for a friend’s wedding and they’ve locked them in for next January .

We had the pleasure of having JayEss's acoustic duo for our Ceremony and 3-piece band for our Reception - both incredible performances! Ian and Jay learnt an acoustic version of our processional song for our Ceremony which was stunning and exceeded our expectations. Our Reception Dance Floor went off with a bang, we had a blast boogey-ing with the band, and our guests all complimented on how interactive and engaging JayEss were. They were responsive to the guests' experience and tailored the music choice as the night evolved to generate the perfect playlist for our wedding. My husband loved how Ian snuck in some extra theme songs from his favourite Marvel movies which was a lovely personalised touch in response to some of our speeches! Highly, HIGHLY recommend JayEss band for any occasion with a dance floor, you will be thoroughly entertained and guaranteed a fabulous time!

My husband and I were blessed to have Jay Ess Events be our entertainment for our wedding and they were hands down incredible. There were no other bands we were interested in having but Jay Ess. Absolutely talented and so easy to work with! Will forever be recommending them to everyone we come across!
