  • Is this Website to book Jake or his band?? What is the difference??
    This page is all about Jake Kambo! Jake Kambo performs Solo and has his own band. Jake Kambo has a 11 piece orchestra to back him if you choose to book that. Imagine booking Michael Bublé for your cocktail, hour alone with background tracks, and then him and his entire orchestra for your reception. As you can imagine, the entire orchestra is so much better than background tracks!
  • How Much Does it Cost to Book Jake solo or with his Band
    Every event is priced individually so please provide as many details as possible in your enquiry. Prices can vary depending on the event location and the exact service required, times required and the audience numbers. For larger events we source a larger sound system that ensures the highest quality of sound. This is an area that is often overlooked by some bands that opt to bring smaller budget systems.
  • What geographical areas do you cover?
    Jake Kambo is based in RI but is happy to travel anywhere in the US, Europe or the World. He already has traveled to sing in 9 different countries!!
  • What Do The Musicians Need?
    Although the band comes completely self-contained, there are certain things that we will need. Such as an appropriate area to perform, a safe power supply, an appropriate room to get changed and store gear in and enough time to set up.
  • How Long Does It Take To Set Up?
    Jake Kambo's band will need 1 hour from entering a room for set up to being ready to perform. Please allow time for this in your plans. At a push we can probably cut this down a little but please bear in mind that if your event runs behind this time cannot be made up in our set up time. Jake Kambo Solo needs about 30mins to set up.
  • Do We Need To Feed The Band?
    Yes please. We do put this in our contracts. Jake Kambo's Band often travels for many hours to reach a venue, and once at the venue (often isolated) we are often all go setting up and getting ready to play. We provide further details on this when booking but it will mainly consist of a hot meal for all band members access to water, tea during the event.
  • How Long Do You Play For?
    Typically... Jake Kambo's Band usually play's three 50min long sets, however we are happy to split this time over 4 sets or even do 1 longer set if required. We can also play background music through our professional sound system before, in-between and after our sets. Jake Kambo plays for 3 sets for 50min long sets. However everything is flexible. We also know the best Djs around to accompany your event with us.
  • Can We see the band live? How about Jake Solo?

  • Will the line up be the same as the video/photos/audio?
    It is not fully possible for us to guarantee certain band members from our promotional material although we do try to stick to the this line up as much as possible. As you can imagine, with 100’s of shows to do and a 11 piece band it is not always possible to have the same line up on every event due to holidays and other professional commitments. Jake Kambo's Band has a level of professional musician means there is always a level of flexibility (you never know when Michael Buble will call!), as we are not just a group of friends or students playing music but a collection of the finest in demand musicians around from the top schools and conservatories! We have built our reputation on providing the highest quality entertainment as the finest modern swing band around. Filled with youth and love! This means when booking Jake Kambo's Band you can rest assured that the quality of musicianship and entertainment that you will receive will be of the highest professional standard, providing you with a show that you will never forget!

    Yes, we can! We want you to have the time of your life but we appreciate the heads up if you think you’re event will run long. Just like your other on-site vendors, we do charge for the extra time.
  • What style of music do you play?
    We play a wide variety of music. From Top 40, to classics, to swing jazz. You can get an idea of the musical styles you can choose from on our media page. Our main attraction is the big band sound
  • How far ahead of the wedding will you be in contact to go over the day-of details?
    We’ll get in touch 2 weeks before your event to finalize the details. This gives you plenty of time to decide on your special dances and work out your event timeline. If you contact us before that and we don’t immediately get back to you, we’re likely handling details for a wedding that weekend. Don’t worry! We’ll give you the same dedicated attention when it comes to two weeks before your event.
  • Who will be my contact on the day of?
    Jake is the guy to call. His number is - 401-559-3458
  • Can the band play outside?
    Yes, but we require cover and a flat, hard, dry surface to play on. Instruments don’t sound as nice when wet (trust us!) and electrical cords mixed with water can be a fire hazard. Also, heat can damage instruments, so please keep this in mind when placing your band and have a backup plan just in case!
