From large banquets to intimate acoustic settings, I've been helping people celebrate special occasions since 2011. I have been touring NJ, NY, PA and DE the past four years, and am now settling back (and booking!) in the Jacksonville Area. I love what I do, and I'd love to help make your event unforgettable.
I am still receiving calls about how amazing Andy was last night! Not only was he talented, but he was super funny and great with our party guests of all ages. He made the party a success! Thank you so much!!
Andy was awesome!!! We have a new bar with a great crowd and he fit right in! Great music and very talented! Thanks Andy!
All of my guest loved Andy! He is an awesome singer and guitar player! He is so flexible, I really couldn't believe the lengths he went to for us! Since the party was held at an outdoor restaurant, I really didn't know what to do if the weather was bad. Andy was in contact with me the whole week before the party to see what we would do if the weather turned out bad. During the middle of the party the clouds started rolling in, and Andy actually re-set up all of his equipment under a canopy area and finished playing! He was unbelievable! He was very professional and I would definitely hire him for any future parties! Thank you Andy for making my husbands birthday awesome!
Awesome voice...great song selection...he is definently a "do over"!
Response from Andy Jacobs:
Thanks Charlie, I had a blast - Keep in touch!
We booked Andy for my daughter’s 25th birthday party, and he was very impressive! He even made the drive all the way down to Jacksonville. Talk about dedication! He played for the whole party and his voice was amazing the entire time! He even learned a couple John Dever songs for us by request. Highly recommend hiring Andy; he’s the best. Our party guests are still talking about his great voice!
Andy was a great performer and had my restaurant guests thanking me for a great experience
Andy added a great touch to my grandson Elliot 's first birthday BBQ/celebration. The music was just perfect for the occasion and the guests really seemed to enjoy it. I certainly would recommend Andy for your next party!
Andy was amazing and perfect for my sons 1st birthday. It was a casual BBQ/Pool party. Everyone enjoyed the light music while they relaxed and celebrated:)
Andy sang a wonderful variety of country and current day music. He has a beautiful voice and was complimented by many of my party guests. He was also very professional throughout booking, preparation and performing the event. My family highly recommends Andy Jacobs!
We hired Andy to sing at our casual outdoor pool party at the shore. All of the guests enjoyed the music and talked about how great he was after the party. The songs played were perfect for a casual event but we also had fun dancing along.
The music was awesome, the sound was impressive. We had an outdoor graduation picnic that besides the diploma, Andy was the big hit. I will definitely be hiring him again. Thanks Andy for making the graduation a very memorable day.
We booked Andy for a house party, and he did great! He was very professional and showed up an hour early to meet everyone and set up. He did great renditions to songs everyone knows and loves. He is an excellent guitar player and has a great voice. He had everyone singing along with him and dancing. We even asked him if he could stay an extra hour because everyone was having such a good time, and he was able to do so! Definitely book Andy for your next party if you want a good time!
Thank you so much for making my graduation/beer tasting party such a great success.Your music and singing was on point. You kept the party going all night and going above and beyond staying late after your shift was already over.. Everyone had such a great time...If we ever have another party your definitely tops on our list...If anyone needs a singer/guitarist look no further than Andy Jacobs...
I can't say enough about this young man. We have booked Andy for numerous cooperate events, his selection of covers never ceased to amaze our clients. He's professional, courteous and all ways on time. I think its only a mater of time before some talent scout scopes him up from us mere mortals. If you want the best, forget the rest. Book him today!
We hit the lottery when we booked Andy to play at our party! He communicated, confirmed times and details for the affair in advance. He arrived early and dressed professionally. He actually started player earlier than the arranged time.. which was fantastic. Great voice and musical skills. His variety of songs were greatly appreciated. Our guests loved him and so did we! I would highly recommend him for any occasion in a heart beat!!!!
I had the pleasure of working with Andy Jacobs for my boss' holiday party. I received a last minute request from my boss to find a guitarist/singer and I am so glad I came across Andy. He was very professional, prompt and extremely talented. He played an array of songs from all genres which pleased everyone in the crowd. I highly recommend Andy and I know we will be using him again for future events.
Andy was wonderful, had all his own equipment, and we all enjoyed his music. Everyone commented on what a nice job he did, and we would love to have him come back and bless us with his talents next year.
Andy did an amazing job at my son's baptism. He is extremely talented and very professional. He played a wide variety of music that we all enjoyed!! We definitely will hire andy again for another party! Thanks again!!!
Andy's performance was amazing. His music catalog and performance really made our fundraiser special. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a versatile professional with strong performance skills. He brings a southern feel to many songs we all know and love - sounded terrific. We received rave reviews from attendees about the music.
What to Expect
Booking is quick and easy. A deposit is typically collected to hold your date - and then it's on the calendar. I'll arrive an hour early, set up my PA system and other gear (I use top of the line, professional BOSE audio equipment), do a sound check, and then perform! My usual performance consists of multiple 45-50min sets with a 10-15 min break. I can typically perform anywhere from 3 to 7 sets. Your guests will be WOW'd by my unique, yet familiar, covers from a wide range of genres including pop, country, reggae and oldies. I can perform quietly in the background - allowing guests to mingle, drink, eat and enjoy or be center stage and entertain. I'm very flexible, and do my best to accommodate requests.
I am licensed to officiate marriage ceremonies in the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida.
