"The band were great, turned up on time, were really helpful calling out the cake cutting for me. They had covered a Jimmy eat world song for our first dance, which was awesome. Had so many comments from guests saying how good they were. Also the whole booking process was very straightforward, was never in doubt about anything. Would highly recommend!"

"Where do we start? The band was absolutely amazing, we had the best time with them! They really got people up on to the dancefloor and interacted with our guests throughout. They really made our evening celebrations perfect. The acoustic duo set they played was also brill, and really added to the atmosphere. We're looking for an excuse to hire them again!"

About us

If you’re looking for a great wedding and function band that offers something a little different, we might be just what you’re after.

The Newfangled Jesters are an enthusiastic and energetic pop/folk duo playing a range of music to get everyone up and dancing. Some say we have a Mumford and Sons vibe and we're fine with that. From the biggest party tracks to the perfect slow dance “the jesters” are guaranteed to get the party started.


*PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS ACT IS A DUO and NOT a trio as shown in some of their promo*

Due to our compact set-up and unique stomp box/electronic drum kit configuration, we can give you a big sound in a 'festival' style whilst fitting in a small space. We are multi instrumentalists so expect the accordion, cajon, guitars, banjos, ukulele, whistles, kazoo and the kitchen sink along with various wind instruments to appear during our set.

The band consists of Reuben and Sam who take care of vocals, guitars, banjos, percussion and anything else we can get a tune out of. 

We can provide music for your whole event, from background music whilst guests are eating with our spot on vocal harmonies to floor fillers and rip-roaring anthems guaranteed to fill the dance floor.

If you have any requests for a first dance (even if it is not on the set list) let us know; as long as enough notice is given we can learn these for you ensuring you have your favourite music played by us on the night.

We offer a complementary manned DJ playlist service so you will always have music throughout the night around our live sets. So dedicated are we that you and your guests get to hear the music you love that we welcome request tweets to us directly before or during the night  - @nfjesters Just tell us what you want to dance to and we'll put it on.
