JumpStart is Northern California and Northern Nevada's premiere party-rock band. Currently residing in the Lake Tahoe area, JumpStart(formerly "5 O'Clock Charlie") has traveled throughout California and Nevada performing for top corporate events, weddings, nightclubs and parties. With their high-energy and dynamic shows, JumpStart specializes in accurate performances and flawless renditions of the best party/rock/dance songs of the 70’s, 80’s, 90's and beyond and cover a wide range of music from Journey to Billy Idol to Michael Jackson to AC/DC to Green Day to Pink and beyond.
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 JumpStart and I agree with all of those reviews. This band has amazing vocal and musical talent and they were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this band to anyone looking for a great classic rock band.

Thanks again for a wonderful show! You guys did a great job and picked out perfect songs to keep the folks there and dancing. I have never seen so many people stay that late with this group. I am looking forward to working with you guys again with our other groups. Donna Boggs Associate Director California Seed Association
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!
