Jason Nelson is an entertainer for all ages. Born and raised in Hillsborough, NJ, Jason Nelson quickly learned how to play the piano, saxophone, guitar, recorder, and harmonica, all before the age of ten. 

 

Having 18+ years of experience on the piano and 14+ years on the alto saxophone, Jason has been sharing his love of music with the world ever since he was a child. At his Bar Mitzvah, Jason captivated the crowd with his saxophone performance of “Tequila” during his grand entrance. When YouTube became popular around 2008, Jason would often record himself covering popular songs on both the piano & sax, where he surpassed 100,000 YouTube views in 2008.

 

In high school, Jason was a member of the award-winning Hillsborough High School Wind Ensemble, including roles in the Jazz Band and Saxophone Quartet. During his undergraduate years at Rutgers University, Jason came in 2nd place in the 2014 Phiesta Greek God competition, wooing the audience with his performance of “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys on the saxophone. Jason graduated from the Rutgers Business School in 2017 with a B.S. in Marketing and a Certificate in Recording Arts from the Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Performing Arts.

 

Currently living in Somerville, NJ, Jason has had the pleasure of playing at over 50+ events, performing for weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, private parties, festivals, showcases, nightclubs, bars, and wineries. Jason also partners with various DJ companies including POSH DJ's, Total Entertainment, SCE Event Group, Magic Moments Productions, Elegant Music Group, and many others around the tri-state area in order to bring joy to as many people as he can.


Having a pulse on the now, Jason's biggest influences come from Top-40/Pop roots. While Jason enjoys playing love ballads by artists like Ed Sheeran or Bruno Mars, he's also been known to rock dance floors covering Lil Nas X, Swedish House Mafia, or even Pitbull. To top off a perfect event, you'll frequently catch Jason serenading crowds with George Michael's "Careless Whisper."


Whether sharing lifetime memories with brides and grooms, to rocking out on stages at NJ Italian festivals, Jason would love the opportunity to play at YOUR next event!

THE KING! Jason was treated like a king at my wedding with the love he got from my family and friends. The dance floor was another level of positive vibes and a good time with Jason playing on the sax. He is so talented and blew us away with the variety of music genes he played phenomenally. Jason’s personality and uplifting spirit was noticed from the moment he started playing, you can tell he truly loves what he does and it shows in his performance. I can’t stop watching the videos of the dance floor and seeing how much my loved ones enjoyed him!

Jason was truly a gem at our wedding! He engages with the audience and has a true talent for playing the sax. Did you know he can play most if not all songs by ear? It’s truly amazing! He is the life of the party and although there were many musical elements he was the lasting impression that my guests still talk about to this day! I would highly recommend him for any occasion! Beyond his entertainment services he is a very personable and humble professional. Fun fact: I found out he also plays the piano so this could be a nice addition to your ceremony. Would I have known this prior to my wedding I would have booked him for that too!

​Jason played solo during our cocktail hour, our first dance, and throughout our wedding reception and absolutely blew our minds at how talented he is. When we ask our guest who attended the wedding what was your favorite part of the wedding they mention Jason. If you want to take your event to the next level, hiring Jason is a must! He is worth every penny and more! Thank you POSH DJ's for the recommendation!!

I got married 11/23/2019 and Jason played the sax for us and I am so incredibly happy we decided to hire him. It truly amplified the dance floor and the overall vibe of the wedding. He was so friendly with our guests. He even got into some photo booth shots. He was a great addition to our day. I was amazed at all the songs he was able to jam out to. He was even able to jam out to our Slavic music. I highly recommend Jason to truly become the life of the party.
