Hire Top-Tier Enteraintment for Fundraisers / Galas Events

Raising Money X Raising The Roof

What we do

We have helped to raise tens of millions of dollars for charities across every sector of the public good: the arts, education, medicine, and scientific research. We believe that when patrons are entertained with the best in world-class comedy, celebrity MCs,and award-winning live music, they become even more connected to the cause. And we all know what that means. It means that a charity event or fundraising gala can become the best party of the year.

Give it all you got!
Team boxing day!

This Is How We Do It

– Montell Jordan

Our team of booking liaisons, creative directors, and producers collaborate closely with each organization, institution, and initiative to build the vision of the evening. From there, we will curate the talent line-up with an eye on impact and evening segmentation, and secure the right entertainment. We can book high-level celebrities to host the evening or emcee the auction, and thought leaders to deliver the keynote message. And we’ll get everyone dancing with amazing bands that will raise the paddle and the roof.

Testimonials

The feedback from our fundraiser gala attendees has been phenomenal! Many people have mentioned that this was the most people danced and the latest the party has ever gone at this event (we've done the Kentucky Derby theme for about 5 years now, at the same location). The night of our event, we heard nothing but "wow, this band is really great!!!!"

... On a personal note, in coordinating with the band before and after the event, they were all very friendly, lovely individuals!

We had The Cheeseballs perform at our Disco Inferno gala and they totally rocked the house! We had pretty specific requests, and some songs that are not on their playlist, but they were able to accommodate our requests. Sarah was a pleasure to work with and the music was amazing. Thank you!

We worked with Jay Siegan Presents to book Notorious for the 2019 PNOC (Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium Foundation) Gratitude Gala at Sweetwater Music Hall, Mill Valley! Our guests had the most incredible time dancing to Notorious and everyone commented about what an amazing band they are! So much fun, so much talent, such great energy! Both Notorious and the Jay Siegan Presents team were a true joy to work with! We are grateful for their contribution to making our gala a huge success and amazing experience for our guests. I can't recommend them enough!

JSP and Wonder Bread 5 have been a pleasure to work with. I've hired them on 5 separate occasions for fundraisers for cancer victims, and each time the band not only puts on a great show, the office staff makes the extra effort to assure everything is ready for the big day. It's been great using them because it is one less thing I need to worry about leading up to the day and can focus on fundraising efforts. Highly recommend JSP and Wonder Bread 5.

We hired Wonder Bread 5 for our 4th of July fireworks show and they absolutely rocked it! JSP was a wonderful organization to work with and responded quickly to any questions. The band showed up for radio interviews, did a meet and greet with our VIP section, and even allowed a few of us on stage for a special song. We are hiring them again next year!

The team at Jay Siegan Presents was great to work with for our fall gala benefitting Marin Charitable. We had booked Wonder Bread 5 for our Oct. 26th event. That day came and so did the power outages that struck all of Marin. We had to act quickly and cancel our event on that very day! Jay and his fabulous team worked in lockstep with us to rebook our event for a future date. We had a new date firmed up in less than 24 hours.

We had our event last night and I could not have been more pleased with the planning and communications prior to the event, the set up crew, and of course, Wonder Bread 5 knocked it out of the park with all the best 80s and 90s hits! Such a talented and engaging group of musicians! We have gotten so much positive feedback and would work with them in the future with great pleasure!

I'm happy to provide this reference for Jay Siegan and the staff. We booked Wonder Bread 5 for our Association convention at the Silverado Resort & Spa this past weekend. Every step of the planning went perfectly - great staff and preparation for our Gala Ball. The band rocked, and so do JSP. I will definitely hire them again.
