As every event has unique needs and requirements, please contact us for pricing. 

À La Carte Entertainment Services

Whether you want to add features to one of our packages above, or you want to completely design your own entertainment package for events or weddings in L.A., Orange County, or Malibu, MJ Entertainment has you covered. Want just our reception band for 4 hours, a harpist, or live acoustic guitar + vocals for the ceremony? Maybe you’d like to add the GB Duo to your wedding package or a string trio to your MJE Original Band choice.

Perhaps you desire a band that has a nostalgic take on pop music. Fitch and the Fog is a fully customizable 4 – 8 piece rock n’ roll band that plays contemporary hits blended with Jazz, Blues, and R&B standards. The band is available for all events including weddings and you can see a clip of some of their music here.

You can also have a fantastic 3-piece band and DJ with Gold Standard. This band’s “Remixed Jazz” combines jazz and pop vocals with live drums, sax, flute, and a DJ, giving them a unique sound that is a danceable jazz/electro/soul hybrid, drawing from influences like Ella Fitzgerald, Bruno Mars, and Daft Punk. Having shared the stage with chart-toppers and entertained multiple events attended by well-known celebrities, Gold Standard could be the perfect choice for your event.

Even More Entertainment Options

When it comes to professional entertainment we try to think of it all. MJ Entertainment can even provide everything needed for sound systems set up as well as extra sound systems including speakers, mixer, and microphone. How about a cocktail hour/reception request book where Michael Jade will put out a request book of songs for you and your guests to choose from while he plays his set?

Want the band for a longer set? Need additional lighting, or want us to travel outside of Los Angeles, Napa, Orange County, Palm Springs or Malibu? We can cover all of your needs and we’re more than happy to do so but of course, these additional features vary in price, so please contact us for further details on the entertainment options that you desire.

Our entertainers are true professionals and genuinely take pride in their performances! If there is something missing from any of our offerings that you’d like to add, just contact us by phone or email and we’ll work with you to design the perfect package for your perfect event.
