Private & Corporate Events

Weddings, private parties, corporate events, special occasions…

Everything from a solo act to a 7-piece band, from Ragtime, Swing and Jump Blues to Rockabilly and Retro Punk/Psychobilly. Here’s a bit about Jake’s most popular band for special events:

The Jake Rude Swing Sextet.

This is Jake’s flagship band. The rollicking 6-piece group has a big powerful sound, featuring an celebrated lineup of great musicians from the Toronto jazz and blues scene. This band has toured the world and has played in some of the most prestigious venues in Europe and North America. Not to be missed.

Fun, energetic, flexible, tasteful, and elegant…
It’s a special band of fun loving swing and jazz musicians. Yes, they tour the world – but imagine them at your wedding, private function or corporate event…

Great entertainment for your function

With the charismatic BRJ leading the band, this group of all-stars is definitely the finest swing combo ever to move a crowd to their feet and get you dancing, or just provide mellow dinner music.
They play your favorite jazz tunes and even a few Big Rude Jake songs if you’re so inclined.

Yes, the Sextet provides polished sophisticated entertainment. But what if you have something a little different in mind? Here, BRJ MCs a theme wedding:
