More Info


Firstly, hello & thanks for checking us out!
We're Jake Newell and Andy Michael, and we're stoked you're considering us for your big day or event. We’ve been playing music together for about a decade, and have been best mates for twice as long. We started out just wanting to be able to play the songs we loved & initiate the odd party sing-a-long. But over the years, lounge room jams lead to open mic nights, which somehow turned into to paid pub and club gigs. Ten years on... Jake & Andy is South-East Queensland’s premier wedding & event entertainment duo. We've been part of more than 500 Weddings. From Beaches to Ballrooms & Backyards to Bowls Clubs, we’ve driven from Coffs Harbour to Noosa, even flown to dreamy weddings in Port Douglas, Bali and Fiji. During this time we’ve learned what a successful and seamless wedding requires. And through experience, Jake & Andy has evolved into far more than just an acoustic duo. So much so that Andy is now a licensed civil marriage celebrant!
Much like our approach to soundtracking a wedding, Andy takes this new role as celebrant very seriously. But that's not to say you can't have a good time! We believe, as we're sure you do, that a wedding should feel like a celebration, not after-school detention.
With our celebrancy & music packages, we provide a service that is both professional & relaxed.
Personality enough to put you & your guests at ease, while remaining reverent & honouring the
wonderful institution that is 'marriage' (promise we're not just saying that 'cause we're married ourselves!).
We're sincerely honoured that you're considering us to play such integral roles on this epic occasion.
Our vows to you; we promise that from today onward we will strive to put you at ease & give you confidence; we will provide a service & create an atmosphere that you & your guests absolutely love.
