Why do you need to JumpStart Your Party? Well, if all you want to do is dance, then you can hire a DJ. If all you want to do is get up on stage, you can rent a karaoke machine or play "Guitar Hero". If all you want to do is see a great stage performance, it might be best to simply play a Live-In-Concert DVD, But if you want to do ALL of those things, then you need to JumpStart Your Party.
JumpStart is Northern California & Northern Nevada's premiere rock/party/dance band with years of combined performing and playing experience specializing in a unique "audience-participation" show where guests are invited and encouraged to join the band on stage. Whether your event is an informal/casual party or the most formal of affairs, JumpStart comes prepared with the appropriate music,
format and attire for any occasion. JumpStart provides
a fun, high-energy performance guaranteed to liven up your
evening. This six-piece band plays the essential music to get you
up on your feet and dancing all night long!

JumpStart is available to travel throughout Northern California & Northern Nevada and will travel further for special events. All aspects of weddings can be covered from ceremony and cocktail music, to emcee announcements and reception dancing. We also provide DJ music free of charge. Special request songs can usually be accommodated under special arrangement.
These guys totally rock! Other vendors in the Tahoe area generally are flaky, incompetent, and overpriced. But not JumpStart - these guys are pros and it shows. The music was fun, high-energy, and kept our wedding crowd on the dance floor all night. If we could give 6 stars, we would. Hire them for your wedding and you won't be disappointed!

Incline Village, NV.
JumpStart added so much to our wedding ceremony and reception. They are an amazing collaboration of extremely talented, great spirited, non-attitude band members. They knew exactly what to play to fit the festive mood of our event! Literally, every song they played had people running to pack the dance floor. My sister and girlfriend discovered them playing at Camp Richardson during the Summer and called me right away and told me they "found the perfect band for my wedding". I immediately visited their website and listened to their awesome music. I booked them as quickly as I could. I am 100% satisfied with their performance. They are worth every penny and then some. They even played for the ceremony which was an added bonus. Everyone was so touched by their rich and soulful voices. Stan did an excellent job at MC- ing the event as well. He is a charismatic speaker and knows how to organize and time things well. This was a great asset to the evening. Added bonuses included a lot of audience participation such as having the bridesmaids jump on stage and play tambourines and sing, a solo song they let me sing with them, and letting my dad play harmonica and sing a blues tune! What fun. I highly recommend this band if you want a truly magical experience that great music can deliver. I recently attended two other receptions. One had a DJ. It was good but did not have the excitement or personal touch that LIVE entertainment delivers, especially GREAT live entertainment like JumpStart!! The other reception didn't have music at all. It was very mellow. All there was to do was talk for hours and eat. The right music and dancing adds so much more! If you get a chance, visit their website and check them out! Or better yet, see when/where they are playing and experience them yourself. They are truly awesome!! I will book them with out a doubt again any chance I get!
--Jennifer Plevel (The Bride) -Hawaii
Excellent....Had a wonderful time watching and dancing. You really engaged the guests. We had fun with the blow up instruments.
--Dee Dee, Sonoma, CA
JumpStart absolutely ROCKED at our wedding reception (Very professional). The good energy they created was infectious. They had the dance floor packed all night. We would refer this band to anyone looking for an awesome time.
--Shawn & Trish Huestis, So. Lake Tahoe, CA
Hats off to your performance Friday night. This was the first times in years that we can remember having to tell people the event was over and that the dancing had to come to a stop. We think the partiers would have stayed all night if allowed.
--South Tahoe Association of Realtors, South Lake Tahoe, CA
We really enjoyed your band and hope to see you perform again soon. You guys rock!

Retirement Party in Walnut Creek, CA on 11/15/2013
"They were great from start to finish!! We had a very unique venue to work with, and they were more than accommodating to make sure everything went off without a hitch! They played songs that were requested, as well as the classic party songs, and kept the party going well into the early morning hours, and with the wide range of age groups we had there, it was hard to do! They were professionals, and you could tell that they really enjoyed what they did, which is always nice to see. I will definitely use them again at our next company party, hands down! Thanks for a great night JumpStart!!"

Wedding Reception in Lodi, CA on 09/28/2013
"From start of the planning process to the end of the show, jumpstart was amazing! Made our wedding the best party ever. A little more expensive than some of our other options, but worth every penny and then some!"

Wedding Reception in Sacramento, CA on 09/28/2013
"We booked JumpStart for my daughter's wedding at Edgewood, Lake Tahoe and from the outset their manager Stan was responsive to all my contacts. To say that this band's performance was sensational is an understatement. From beginning to end the dance floor was packed. Their selection of songs, playing and vocals blew everyone away and they involved our guests by having them on stage dancing and playing tambourines with them. I am still getting emails from our guests telling me how great this band and the music was. Their energy is phenomenal. I would recommend JumpStart to anyone looking for a sensational band. Professional, talented and easy to work with. Vicki J. "

Wedding in Mendocino, CA on 08/24/2013
"Jumpstart was absolutely fantastic and made our wedding unbelievably fun! Our guests could not stop raving about the band the whole night and days afterward. The dance floor was packed all night and many of our guests ended up on stage playing the tambourine and blow-up guitars. The band was very professional and organized. They smoothly incorporated songs from our iphone for some of the special dances and fixed minor technical hiccups during cocktails immediately. We even asked them to learn a new song that wasn't for one of the special dances the week before the wedding and they pulled it off perfectly! It meant a lot to us. We would highly recommend Jumpstart! "

Wedding Reception in Stateline, NV on 08/19/2012
"We hosted a wedding at Edgewood Club, South lake Tahoe NV.
We had guests from the California Coast, Mid West and the East Coast.
To a person all our guests said this band was THE BEST they had ever experienced at a wedding venue. The bride and I felt that JUMPSTART could not have been easier to work with. Stan Freeman, Amy and Tiffany were 100% accommodating, friendly, helpful and professional. Our music started a little later than we expected because of the Edgewood Club, but once the band started THEY NEVER STOPPED for 2-3 hours. From the very first song the dance floor stayed packed. Everyone had a blast including the band members. We could not have been happier"

Anniversary Party in Kings Beach, CA on 06/29/2012
"Simply awesome. Easy to work with, accomodating, great energy and talent, and music selection was on the money. The only other thing we can say is - were we to hire a band in the future for this type of event, Jumpstart is the only choice. Everyone at the party (100+) raved about them."
- Lawrence L.
Convention in Reno, NV on 03/02/2012
"Wow...Jumpstart really delivered!! They were exactly what our convention needed. I can't tell you how many members complimented me on their perfomance. They kept the audience involved and dancing the whole night. Jumpstart also did a great job connecting with our 1960's theme. Every band member was dressed in costume which added to the overall effect. I was also very impressed with the talent all the members brought to the stage. Many of the cover songs they did rivaled the originals. I would definately recommend Jumpstart for any event."
- Monica A.
Wedding Reception in Sacramento, CA on 04/29/2011
"We hired JumpStart for our wedding. I can't count how many people came up to me, including other wedding staff, and asked me where I found this awesome band. Many people also told me that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and I honestly attribute most of that to JumpStart and their high level of energy and ability to pick the right song at the right time. The dance floor honestly stayed packed from start to finish. We will definately hire them again for our next party or event! Thanks again Stan and the rest of the group. You guys ROCK! "

"Jumpstart was awesome and they really made the whole reception! They are truly great performers and extemely talented.

Almost the entire wedding was on the dance floor which include my 85 year old great aunt :) Thank you so much!"

Wedding Reception in Reno, NV on 10/16/2010
"JumpStart was amazing at my wedding. Their attention to all our little details really made our party special, not to mention that all their individual talent is amazing! Their new female vocalist has an amazing voice. I was so lucky to be able to hire them! With their blow up plastic guitars for the audience, incorporating my guests, and keeping the party going...we had so much fun. Thank you thank you thank you! We didn't have to worry about a thing, such professionals!

"The band was great and a lot of fun. The families enjoyed the music and kids got up to dance, play the blow-up guitars, and join the band on stage. Jumpstart was easy to work with, showed up on time, were professional and provided a great sound system, lighting, playlist and fun evening for all. "

Private Party in Reno, NV on 04/24/2010
"Jumpstart completely exceeded my expectations. The songs they play keep people dancing and they interact with the crowd including them on stage. I had nothing but positive feedback from my guests and I would hire Jumpstart for any event. From the minute I started the process until the end of my event it was seamless. The best cover band out there and I will use them again without even looking further. "
- Jen O.
Wedding Reception in Upper Lake, CA on 06/30/2012
"Jumpstart completely rocked my wedding reception. Stan was the emcee during the reception and he was absolutely amazing, he had the crowd engaged and laughing the entire time. The band was able to go with the flow so well, and had the dance floor packed by the end of the night. They did an amazing job, they were definitely worth the money. Book them, I promise you won't be sorry. "
- Allison P.
Country Club Event in Marysville, CA on 11/14/2009
"5 O'Clock Charlie was simply amazing! This was the first time I have ever booked a band and was a little nervous about doing so over the internet. My fears were quckly reduced by this bands professionalism and then when their wonderful music started. They kept our quests on their feet dancing the entire night and helped to make our fundraiser a huge success. I received so many positive comments from other committee members that I do not hesitate to recommend them for any event. We will definately use them again next year. Loved the music!

"They were totally awesome! Our friends were so impressed and we received so many compliments about the band.

They also learned two song requests of ours perfectly for our wedding."

- Floyd C.
Convention in Reno, NV on 10/03/2007
"I hired this band because my conference attendees were looking for a band that could do all sorts of music, but mostly 70's classic rock. Everywhere I read great reviews about 5 O'Clock Charlie and I agree with all of those reviews. This band has amazing vocal talent and they were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this band to anyone looking for a great classic rock band."
