“…Andre and I wanted to let you know how thrilled we were with the music Jumpstreet provided for our recent wedding reception. The band’s selection was right on the mark, and kept the dance floor packed from dinner ’til midnight. Many of our wedding guests have since mentioned to us how terrific the music was, and how much fun they had dancing the night away thanks to your talented musicians. The groom and myself certainly share that opinion.“ ~ Maria Mastras Jacquemetton, Columbia Pictures Entertainment, Los Angeles, CA

“Thank you again for the extraordinary job Jumpstreet did for our program last week.

I hope to use them again soon.” ~ Andrew Snider, President, Harvard Business School

“Jumpstreet is a band I would highly recommend. We at Tri Companies used Jumpstreet for a recent Lifeline function at the JFK Library in Boston. Aside from their talent and versatility, they were extremely flexible and willing to go beyond the call of duty to insure that the evening was pleasurable for everyone in attendance. On a short notice Jumpstreet delivered a rousing musical retrospective of the 20th Century music, complete with props, that had everyone on their feet dancing. All in all were very pleased with the band’s level of cooperation and dedication to the enjoyment of Tri Companies guests. We would not hesitate to give them the very highest of recommendations.” ~ Richard Hand, President TriCompanies, Boston

Jumpstreet has my endorsement.” ~ Steve Roche, Chairman/Citizens for Joe Malone
“Weymouth Mayor Sue Kay danced, bowed and waved as she entered her inaugural ball to a standing ovation and the theme from ‘Rocky.’ . . .the Jump Street Band provided the music. Her only concern was being able to speak to everyone who had come, she said. The dance floor was full throughout the night, and roars of cheers came from the Patriots fans as the night wore on and victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars became apparent.” ~ Patriot Ledger by Adva Saldinger, January 14, 2008
“…having Jumpstreet at our Christmas party was such a treat. I can’t imagine the party being anywhere near as successful with another band….the members of Jumpstreet are excellent musicians who know how to have fun. The word at Funk is that this was one of our best parties so far, thanks to Jumpstreet. After all, they even got our president on his dancing feet.” ~ Kate Buchanan, Funk Software
“As the father of the bride, nothing gives me more satisfaction than to have our close friends continue to comment glowingly on our daughter Kimberly’s wedding, at which you played so marvelously last fall. It is true that the seaside setting was gorgeous, and the hors d’oeuvres and oyster bar were ‘magnificent’; but it’s the band that makes a wedding a real happening. Kim’s wedding was a ‘happening’ by any definition, and your ‘Jump Street’ band was sensational. Right at the outset you picked up on the mood of the wedding party and guests and at the end they were still begging for more. This was no accident….your band played just as brilliantly at our son’s wedding four years ago. We were delighted in every way.” ~ J. Lincoln Spaulding, Sheppard Envelope Company
“Jumpstreet is a band I would highly recommend. We employed their services recently for a holiday party at The Rhode Island Country Club and were quite pleased. Aside from being fine musicians, the members of Jumpstreet connected with the crowd in a very positive way. They provided thoughtful selections ranging from quieter dinner music, to songs that had the dance floor crowded with guests. Their energy and versatility were appreciated and helped to insure the enjoyment of everyone in attendance. The band was prompt, courteous and professional. They were happy to accommodate special requests and in general were a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends, associates or to anyone seeking a band to add that special something to their event.” ~ Claude Hirsch, JCJ Sales, Inc.
“The kids have all just left & I was going to email you and the band a HUGE thank you for making our party Friday night the party of the year — maybe the decade– on MDI!! It is the talk of the town, and the major reason was the fabulous music. I think several of the wild dancers may still be in traction. Truly, you outdid yourselves and Clay and I can’t thank you enough. You are the best and such a pleasure to work with. We’ll have to come up with a reason to have another party soon! Thanks again SO much. I want to see our photo with Martha!!” ~ Margaret, August 2012

Just, M.D., Associates in Urology, Inc., Guild Medical Center, Norwood

They play an incredibly wide variety of music – our guests from 18 to 86 enjoyed listening to them as well as dancing to the beat! Requests were played too, no problem! Our friends and family keep asking where we found this super group.” ~ Kay and Frank Conrad
“Our parents and their friends loved the swing music, but you played so well and with such enthusiasm that quite a few of our friends found their way to the dance floor. However, few guests could stay off the dance floor when you played R&B and Motown. As well, it was a wonderful surprise to hear songs from the most recent artists with hits just a month or two old!” ~ Susan H., Boston, MA
“Local favorites on the Boston party scene, Jumpstreet, managed to snag one of the two biggest millennium bashes planned for this New Years Eve – energy czar Peter Roy’s extravaganza in Cohassett.” ~ Boston Herald, Inside Track
“A BASH TO CRASH: If you’re looking for a good holiday party to crash next year, put the annual McDermott/O’Neil and Associates bash on your list. The public relations firm took over the whole glass-walled lobby of One Beacon Street Thursday, offering full bar service to anyone who walked in the door. The party was a rollicking good time. US representative Joe Moakley belted out a tune with the band, Jumpstreet, who provided the entertainment for the second year in a row.” ~ Boston Globe, Party Lines

“Thank you for playing at our Wedding at The Somerset Club. The band was wonderful and the range of your repertoire appealed to all our guests. Our parents and their friends loved the swing music, but you played so well and with such enthusiasm that quite a few of our friends found their way to the dance floor. However, few guests could stay off the dance floor when you played R&B and Motown. As well, it was a wonderful surprise to hear songs from the most recent artists with hits just a month or two old! Everyone, young and old loved the band. I feel a band is so important to the party and Jumpstreet truly made our wedding a great party! We have continued to receive many compliments from both our friends and our parents and their friends.” ~ Susan P. Hackney (cc: Curtis International)
“Jumpstreet kept the crowd dancing for the entire reception! They were wonderful! We received numerous compliments on the music. A great variety of songs and played with skill and enthusiasm. Thanks!” ~ Lisa B.
