about our video samples...

"Motion picture" looking band videos (not ours -ha ha) are recorded on sound stages, with big light shows & effects - then lip-synced to previously recorded audio while the video part is being filmed. There's NOTHING at all wrong with that - it's exactly how videos on channels like MTV are made by VERY talented people.

BUT, that's often not how it's going to look or sound at YOUR event. And you're not hiring a "movie" - you're hiring a BAND.

Does your venue have (or will YOU rent) that big of a stage? Does the Band include all that "stuff"? - those lights? Do they bring ANY of it? The answer is almost always "NO" - not without paying many thousands of $$ to someone to bring all that stuff in.

…so what?

...so… while our videos are nowhere near as "Hollywood-like" as others - our band sound IS being recorded while the videos are shot ..meaning that's how we sound! (AND we bring the lighting effects that we show too)

We respectfully submit our videos show a realistic & accurate impression of what you are actually going to get with us at YOUR event - as opposed to a staged look that just isn't realistic, without piling on $$ for lots of extra "stuff"

And, that we will sound this way at YOUR event too! ...Most of our clients say our videos don't do us justice... We think that's a LOT better than seeing a band that looks like Hollywood & then getting a "garage band" that leaves your guests going for earplugs. Don't you agree?

It doesn't hurt to know what to expect! :)

what REAL clients - just like you - say about the JP band!

  • "You guys were absolutely fabulous!!

    You all were everything and more and you made our wedding day truly the most fun day of our lives.

    Everyone loved you all and you were the talk of each day after (even the 4th party we had). I will tell everyone to go give you all 5 stars & honestly you deserve more.

    Many many thanks and hope to see you again!"

  • "Thank you for making our vision for our wedding a reality.

    More than anything, Michael and I wanted the reception to be a party, with lots of dancing. And that’s exactly the mood you and the band provided.

    Your song selections were excellent, and the music (and fun) never stopped.

    You really made the night perfect and were so professional. Having you provide the entertainment for the wedding was one of the best decisions that we made!"

    I saw a video of you while looking for a band for my daughter’s wedding, and although I couldn’t get you I knew the Mardi Gras couldn't afford NOT to have you.

    ...and as they say, the rest is history! You are amazing!"

PLEASE NOTE:

At events, people that shoot video on their phones have NO idea where to stand so it doesn't sound weird, or look dark - but we're NOT going to send out some cameraman to interrupt people's events! - So... we take what we get & just have to accept what's here is not great sounding or looking.

Also, sometimes people seem to like to record the most "interactive" moments, like JP singing to the crowd, or the guests acting goofy, etc... and accordingly, that's a lot of what you see here. While those moments are unquestionably fun - all the video of it might leave the impression that's all we do - While nothing could be further from the truth.

There's a time & place for that kind of thing - please trust we have the common sense to know when that's the case! :)
