This is your one-stop shop for wedding music! I offer:

- solo violin

- solo peformance on gutiar, piano, violin, voice, percussion

- duo performance with two guitars, violin, two singers (male and female), piano, percussion

- full band performances ranging from four to six pieces (including trumpet / male and female vocals) and a set list that spans classic rock to country to hip-hop

- a soloist, duo and band that offer more than the typical wedding band. We don't just learn some dance tunes - we're musicians who have played together for years and you can hear the difference. You can also catch us out live on major stages or listen to our original music on Spotify, Amazon, Apple Music, etc. Your guests won't just enjoy a wedding band - they'll enjoy musicians they can go see again and again on major stages or local bars. I love that couples we've performed for become friends we see again for years and share in their special moments - often playing future birthday parties, graduations and anniversaries! You don't just get music at your wedding. You get a lasting connection.

- check out our schedule and see us before you choose! www.jessrocknovak.com/shows

Whether you're looking for ceremony music, cocktail hour or reception - I can do it all bringing you the perfect combination of talents to suit your taste.

Plus, the duo features myself and my boyfriend. If you want true love songs - we've got them becuase we've written them for each other. We don't just sing into the mic, we sing across it, and that positive energy will doubtlessly carry into your day.

I've play many weddings locally, but have also traveled as far as Massachusetts, Florida and Arizona to complete some amazing days for incredible couples. We are willing to travel!

Let us know what you want to hear!

    Was exactly what we were looking for!!

    I myself am a musician and my wife and I (who met a festival) spend a lot of time seeing live music—so we had to have a live band at our wedding. We chose to have it in CNY near family but having lived in CO for 15 years we were unfamiliar with local artists. I was adamant that we have a violin player perform the ceremony so some musician friends of mine introduced me to the Jess Novak Band, and when I discovered they perform weddings I immediately wrote them for availability. Unfortunately they had a prior engagement and the full band was unavailable but Jess and Ben agreed to come perform the ceremony and cocktail hour as a duet and they were awesome! They learned a few untraditional songs for us and performed their own renditions as instrumentals and it was exactly what we were looking for…my wife is the kind of person to walk down the aisle to Dispatch and not here comes the bride. Even though we requested bluegrass and jam band songs for the ceremony their renditions were elegant, and getting to walk down the aisle to our favorite songs was one of the most memorable moments of our wedding. I highly recommend these guys, they were great performers, easy to work with, reasonably priced and responded quickly and consistently.

Want to know me in a nutshell? Here we go:

- I've played violin since I was 7 years old

- I've released 10 original albums since 2013

- I've played weddings from New York to Massachusetts to Arizona to Florida. I am SO willing to travel for you!

- weddings are my favorite events to play becuase people are so appreciative and HAPPY. That energy is infectious. I also love to provide a soundtrack for such an important occassion.

- I play everything from Amy Winehouse to Chris Cornell to TLC to The Little Mermaid to classical. There isn't much I can't bring to your day - and once I add my duo partner or band - anything goes!

- I didn't pursue music for years because I thought I wasn't good enough. Once I did - my career took off quickly and dramatically. I'm a living example that once you set your heart and mind to something - you can do anything if you work hard enough. I bring that positive energy to everything I do and you can bet I'll bring it to you.

I can't wait to be part of your day!
