Vintage vocals accompanied by bright ukulele, guitar, banjo, and more!
I sing jazz, folk, pop, oldies, and originals. Perfect for parties, weddings, or corporate events that need some jazzing up. Book me as a solo artist or hire our whole band!
My partner and I play most often as a duo, and we love jazz, bluegrass, pop, folk, and oldies. Many of our gigs are a mix of all! If you prefer more instruments and a larger band, I can bring in more musicians.
We also know tons of children's music and I have over 7 years of experience working with kids. You can book me —or our duo— for an original kid's birthday party (with interactive live music)!
You'll love us!
The Overnite Oats, Jill and Gordon, were absolutely professional from beginning to end. I enjoyed reviewing the event details of our corporate dinner party with them, Jill and Gordon are very nice and easy to get along with – the sweetest! On the day of the event, they showed up on time/early, and their outfits matched perfectly with our event style. They played a great selection of songs for our garden party, and really set the tone as guests flowed into the party. Although it rained the day of our event, the Overnite Oats made it feel like a clear starry night. A huge THANK YOU to Jill and Gordon for such a fabulous night. We will most definitely hire them again–hopefully soon!
We hired Jill and Gordon to play while guests arrived to our wedding. She was glorious! Our guests raved about how nice Jill sounded, and the fantastic selection of songs. In fact, Jill learned a few songs just for this gig, including the one I walked toward my husband to be to; it was beautiful.
I highly recommend Jill.
Booking Jill and Gordon was the best idea I've ever had! They were so sweet, stayed in contact the whole time and were super accommodating with any requests or questions we had.
They are beautiful singers and excellent musicians. I would book them again at the drop of a hat (unfortunately we live in the UK so that might not ever be possible) they made our wedding a truly special occasion. I cannot thank them enough for providing fantastic entertainment for our reception and the music for our service.
Jill has an ease about her- very very warm personality and a relaxed performer and Gordon really got into the spirit by learning songs out of his comfort zone.
They fit in perfectly with the entire day. Quirky, cool and talented. 10 out of 10. All of our guests asked about them and thought they were awesome too.
Was pleased that Jill brought a back up guitarist to make the event extra special. Nice, gentle music.
Response from Jill Sargeant:
We had a great time playing for this autumn event. Though it was a casual outdoor atmosphere and our duo played folk tunes to match, we also perform at many upscale events like weddings. We heard a lot of positive feedback from the crowd and enjoyed watching all the sweet dogs running around :)
Jill was awesome ! She created the perfect ambience for my wedding with her voice and ukulele. Thank you Jill - it was exactly what I had envisioned :)
This is the second time we hired her for our kids birthday party and Once again, I was the genius for hiring Jill! No one said nice food or good cake but we had a lot of comments on how great the entertainment was. Every comment about the entertainment I would smile at my wife and she would give her usually eyeroll.
They were amazing!! Really made my 50th birthday a magical time for everyone and a celebration I’ll never forget!
Thank you thank you!!
Omg book Jill and Gordon now!
Jill is fantastic and I would definitely hire her again and recommend her to my friends and family! And THEIR friends and family lol 😄!
First, she has a gorgeous voice obviously. When I first heard her samples on here I immediately knew she would be perfect to perform our wedding song. I actually hired Jill way before any other wedding vendors and before I even knew exactly where in So Cal we would be lol.
But she is also so sweet, understanding, and easy to work with and made our event stress-free, especially considering that our officiant nonchalantly decided to stroll in over an hour late!
She worked with me over a song list and even learned songs and was very accommodating with my corny song requests lollll.
Jill and Gordon are total professionals and arrived super early to get everything set up and came prepared which was SO appreciated.
When she played and sang our wedding song I Choose You, my entire family and I practically started sobbing like babies because it was so beautiful!!! I’m so sad we didn’t get that song on video though 😭😭! She also sang You and I as my entrance song and it was so perfect and adorable ❤️!!! And when she was playing and singing during cocktails I was so happy just sitting and listening that I forgot I had a wedding going on and that I had to play bride and attend to guests and wedding stuff 😂 LOL.
Thank you so much, Jill, for making our intimate wedding SOOO special with your beautiful voice and music ❤️❤️❤️!!! You guys are awesome!
Jill and Gordon have a fantastic sound! We had them come play for my dad‘s birthday and we all had such a good time listening to their special brand of our request to hear folky jazz and bluegrass music. We were all truly entertained and they are both great with kids. My two-year-old son had so much fun dancing to their beats. I recommend them for any party when you want beautiful voices and exciting beats.
Jill and her band were very pleasant and talented! They arrived on time to set up and gave an amazing performance. Thank you Jill and team! We will keep in touch!
Jill played her ukulele and sang somewhere over the rainbow and landslide at my cousin Ariana memorial service . Jill has a sweet and beautiful voice . Jill made this day special and I thank her dearly and recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful voice and ukulele..xoxo Natasha
Response from Jill Sargeant:
Thank you Natasha! Sending love to you and your family during this difficult time.
Jill and her band were absolutely fabulous! They learned Dixie Chicks songs for our wedding and played them during cocktail hour. Our guests absolutely loved them! Thank you so much!
jill has great reviews for a reason she is awesome. I would totally recommend to anyone looking for anything she took some of weird requests (Threes company theme song) and did it. The Glen Hansard covers were awesome I might have to ask her for just Glen hansard next time. Just book her and you will be happy.
We invited Jill and Gordon to come out and play for our baby shower at an out of the way property we rented deep in Topanga Canyon. After spending a little time checking out videos online and considering the venue and the atmosphere, it made perfect sense to have them there and added a very lively and engaging side to the event. They played a lot of great and timeless covers, some of Jill's own compositions as well as a few requests along the way. Jill has a truly wonderful voice, and Gordon's backup and guitar really filled out the sound well. Beyond the performance itself, they were two of the nicest people you could meet, were punctual, gracious, and felt right at home at something as intimate as a baby shower. Communication leading up to the event and on the day of the shower was amazing, and the GigSalad process was smooth and easy. Our shower was just as we had envisioned it, and I can't thank Jill and Gordon enough for their talented efforts to make it even better. Highly recommend! ~Mark
I had a luau for my son's 16th birthday last night and wanted to make it memorable. Jill was the highlight of the night. She played and sang beautifully. She played all the songs I requested and my guests were so impressed by her performance. Hoping she could come sing at my son's Christmas party! So beautiful. She was borm to sing
Jill and her banjo player (don't remember his name) were a wonderful duo! They played a mix of oldies, folky songs and a couple "kid" songs like "you are my sunshine" (which we had requested prior to the event) and a cute rendition of Jungle Book song "I want to be like you". The adults and kiddos alike all very much enjoyed the music. They brought instruments to join along which made it really fun for the kids. They also endured an hour in the sun on our roof deck with smiles on their faces, we so appreciated it! Highly recommend!
We hired Jill and her partner for our son's first birthday. My son could not take his eyes off them for their whole set except when he was soothed to sleep for his much needed nap time. Our guest really enjoyed their music also. Thanks Jill!!
Jill came and played for my son's first birthday and it made the whole event! Jill and her partner performed as a duo and sung a variety of songs from nursery favorites to Johnny Cash and even took requests..from the kids :) Their voices and harmonies make for a very sweet and vintage sound. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone who wants to make their event extra special!
I am usually pretty useless at planning things. My wife planned all the food and the decorations and every time we host things, my one job is to just get out the way. So for the boys birthday, I decided to book Jill and it turned to be the best thing at the party. Yes, it was best decision I made because every time people complemented us on the entertainment, I would look at my wife and give her a smirk. Anyways, I am glad I booked them. They're not only perfect for kid songs but they sing songs that adults love as well.
Booking Jill was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was proposing to my fiancé last night. During the entire two weeks planing, she managed to stay in contact all the time, responded to my every message fast and clear.
And her voice, oh my holy god her voice was just sooo beautiful. Me and my fiancé both cried when I took out the ring, half of the reasons went to Jill's touching voice. I bet if she sing in the forest, birds will fly around her. I would definitely book her again in any events that involves a musician. And highly recommend to all my friends.
Thanks ever so much for coming to our son's 2nd birthday party on super short notice! You and engaged the kids in playing instruments and singing wonderful and joyous songs. Maybe Everyone had a really good time.
Jill was so helpful throughout this process. She was in touch through e-mail and got tight backntonus always. So nice to speak with and was nore than willing to take requests and learn new songs. We were so happy to have here play ukulele at our wedding. We would definitely recommend her. Thanks so much Jill we got great feedback from our guests about your music!!!!!
I decided to hire Jill for my engagement proposal, she made BEAUTIFUL versions of two of our favorite songs.
The whole process was incredibly smooth, since she sent me quote the communication was constant, and very kind.
The big day she always wanted to be sure that the performance to be perfect, and so it was!
She and his partner appeared so elegant, which added a nice touch to the moment. Very professional!
And when they began to play, it was AMAZING.
Really, the talent of Jill and her voice cannot be described by words.
Thanks again Jill to made that moment unforgettable.
We loved having Jill sing for our daughter's first Birthday.
Sweet and delightful voice!!
Thank you Jill!!!
Jill you were great. Even the singing teachers there were like "she is good how did you find her". Great music what a nice time buy both young and old
We hired Jill for a children's event and she offered great flexibility, understanding, and enthusiasm for our mission. Her music was specifically tailored to our program and it made a huge difference! If you are looking for a friendly touch and an awesome voice - get Jill.
Thank you Jill for making such a wonderful surprise for my wife and helping make our anniversary so special!! Your voice and your performance were wonderful and helped make what would have otherwise been a forgettable anniversary one that she and I will always remember fondly. Thank you!!
The minute I heard Jill's voice in one of her videos, I knew she would be perfect for our wedding reception. She sang all of our favorite love songs (she takes requests if you let her know in advance) and the guests just raved about how much they loved dancing to her. She really added an extra touch of class and elegance to our reception, in a way that only live music and true talent can.
Very professional! She played beautifully for the hours booked, and she was very sweet! We will definitely book her again for a dinner party (or our anniversary)!!
What to Expect
If you hire me, you can expect punctuality, professionalism, and a good spirit. My band and I can adapt to any room, mood, occasion, or event. Whether it be jazz at a soft-spoken dinner party or bluegrass at your rambunctious birthday fiesta, we can do it all. I always put hours of time into crafting the perfect setlist for your event based on who you are, what music you like, where the event will be, and who will attend. I understand that when planning a party, you have a lot on your plate, so once you book me you won't need to worry about the music. I will communicate as much or as little as you need :)
I can bring in more musicians for a fuller sound. If you'd like upright bass, piano, guitar, percussion, or horns, let me know and I can bring a band! Perfect for weddings and dancing!!
If you book me for a kid's party, you can expect a lot of funny faces and sing-a-longs to songs they all know, such as "You Are My Sunshine" and "Do Re Mi" from The Sound of Music. Let me know if you want me to play (or NOT play) "Let it Go" from Frozen!
I also have a few instruments and shakers the kids can use, so they can participate in the music making.
If you have a genre in mind, tell me what types of songs you want to hear most and I will accommodate . I'm also happy to come prepared with a set list I think will work best for the event, if you are unsure!
I am originally from Southern California, but I attended school in New York at Sarah Lawrence College. There I studied musical theatre, voice, and writing, and decided that singing and songwriting are my true passions! I sing a lot of old jazz standards, old and new folk songs, and any pop song that really speaks to me. I lived in New York for about six years and spent three of those years singing all over New York City. NYC is also where I met Gordon (the blonde guy in some of my photos/ videos), and very quickly we started playing music together. Now I've brought him back to California with me and we are ready for all the California gigs/ adventures!
Check out some of my original music on iTunes and Spotify. My debut album titled "Sweet & Sour" was recorded in 2016.
Feel free to contact me with any questions at all!
Additional Booking Notes
If you happen to have a stage, lights, and a sound set-up, that's awesome!
Otherwise, all we need is a little space to stand and (if you want amplification) an outlet!
You won't need to set up anything else!
