Newfangled Jesters


The Newfangled Jesters are an enthusiastic and energetic Mumford and Son style folk trio playing a range of music to get everyone up and dancing. From the biggest party tracks to the perfect slow dance “the jesters” are guaranteed to get the party started.

Due to our compact set-up and unique stomp box hooked up to an electronic drum kit, we can give you a big sound in our uniqie 'festival' style way whilst fitting in a small space.We are multi instrumentalists so expect the accordion, cajon drum and various wind instruments to appear during our set.

We can provide music for your whole event, from background music whilst guests are eating with our beautiful vocal harmonies to floor fillers and rip-roaring anthems to fill the dance floor.

If you have any requests for a first dance (even if it is not on the set list) let us know, as long as enough notice is given we can learn these for you ensuring you have your favourite music played by us on the night.

We offer a complementary manned  DJ playlist service so you will always have music played throughout the night around our live sets. Your guests are welcome to tweet us directly before or during the night @nfjesters, song requests that you want on next.

Newfangled Jesters were amazing!!! Everyone was on the dance floor. One of the best parts of Jen and Scott's wedding day! Sam even came onto the dance floor with his accordion, fantastic festival feel which is just what they wanted. They were well worth the money we paid. Will want to see them again and hope we can invite them back for a farm festival we'd love to make happen in the future.

Newfangled Jesters

Absolute 10 out of 10 band - made the day absolutely amazing!

Newfangled Jesters

Morning guys, hope you had a good trip back home after being what was simply the best band we could ever have hoped for at our wedding on Saturday. We had some very high expectations of The Newfangled Jesters and let me tell you, you guys met, delivered and delivered again …and again in terms of being just , well the word is ‘brilliant’ and that still doesn’t cover it; The wedding party you helped create was honestly the most amazing day of our lives , seeing everybody just revelling in the moment and enjoying your sets and so many people have said your performances were pure fun & class…..I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did, we aimed for a festival vibe and I think what with a combination of Tipi’s and a double-bass playing band with a fine beard, we nailed it; and lastly Sam, thank you for giving me the nudge to do my song-bit; Anna was and I think still is just amazed that I had not only the cahones…I was sober….but also that I can almost hold a tune…..and to such an important song for us both.
