Meet the Artist


Jontue Elan’s style can be explained as Jazz Fusion with her smooth Jazz vocals and clever lyrics. Her songs are written from the heart and sung from the soul. Her influences include Norah Jones, Etta Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Feist, Louis Armstrong and Ray Charles to name a few.

Jontue Elan has released two EP’s entitled, “Jontue Elan”, a Jazz Fusion style and “No Longer” an inspirational album, both of which can be found and purchased on iTunes.

In 2013 Jontue Elan was nominated by the GMA Awards for, “Blues/Jazz Song of the Year – Oh Abbey”, and for “Blues/Jazz Album of the Year “Jontue Elan”. Jontue Elan had a Christmas wish come true, as her cover/single of, What Child Is This” was played on Faith Fm 93.7, and CBC Radio 89.1 this Christmas! Her music can be found on ITunes, and Spotify..



Punctual

Arriving at the venue 1-2 hours before the ceremony, I come to hear the acoustics in the room, and meet with the sound man. I do a mic check and set up, and make sure things are ready to go musically. At this point I will be available to talk with you, or a point person to go over the details of the service, or any last minute changes that need to be made.


Attentive

At your request I will play thirty minutes to an hour before your ceremony, creating atmosphere for your arriving guests with a specially selected list of songs that you have chosen, or I have created for you! By playing live I am able to tailor the set list for your special day, to start earlier, or play longer, as needed to keep things running smoothly.


Personal

I will provide either familiar background music for your wedding day, or a set list I have creatively chosen. Depending on the needs of your day and reception I can play smooth and subtle music in between announcements, speeches, and the cutting of the cake, providing you with seamless transitions required throughout your special day.


Jazz/Blues Album of the Year

Her first EP entitled “Jontue Elan” was nominated for “Jazz/Blues song of the Year – Oh Abbey” and “Jazz/Blues Album of the Year” by the 2013 GMA’s.


What I offer


1. INTRODUCTION

I meet with you for a coffee three to four weeks in advance to discuss your wedding day plans and music style you prefer. Here we talk about any specific song requests you have, and go over prices.

2. Before the Ceremony

Arriving at the venue 1-2 hours before the ceremony I come to see the musical set-up, prepare vocally, and hear the acoustics in the room. At this point I will be available to talk with you, or a point person to go over the details of the service, or any last minute changes that need to be made.

3. Ceremony

I will create atmosphere by playing for your arriving guests a specially selected list of songs, that you have chosen, or I have created just for your day. As I am playing live, I tailor the set list to play longer if needed before the ceremony starts, or end early, in order to allow things to keep to schedule.


4. Ceremony's End

After your ceremony has finished I am able to play the selected song of your choice for when you are walking down the aisle as a new couple! I can also play for you if you have a receiving line, or continue to create warm background music as you celebrate with friends and family.

5. Reception

Depending on day, I can play at your reception for up to three hours which can include: creating background music to entertain your guests before dinner, playing for your first dance, as well as being able to provide smooth and subtle music for all the transitions required in your reception.

6. First Dance

Have a special song between you and the one you love? Or dancing to that song from your favourite movie with your Father? For your first dance, Father/Daughter, Mother/Groom, or bridal party, I can work with you to make this dream a reality!


Bachelor of Music in Classical Voice

F.A.Q.'s

Your wedding day is unique, and so the price for your wedding will also be unique to you and your needs. Jontue Elan offers three different packages, each with unique music specifications to fit the needs of your special day!

The sooner the better if your date is confirmed. Jontue typically receives many early bookings for the spring and fall. Jontue will always try to accommodate last minute requests but please email first to check for availability, as the wedding season fills up quickly! 

Not necessarily, as Jontue Elan can provide a ESQX 88 weighted keyboard, monitor, and microphone. Many halls and churches contain pianos already, so it will depend on the sound and acoustics that you desire for your wedding. Please contact Jontue Elan, to discuss the details of this.

The packages convey prices which include milage from a 30 km radius from Waterloo Ontario. Weddings which are farther away than the 30 km radius will be upcharged a $25.00 fee per hour (of performing) to cover for the additional mileage.

Yes! With many different musical styles and pieces, not every piece can be performed exactly as it is with being a solo artist. However Jontue Elan enjoys learning new music immensely, so if possible a modified version will be crafted to fit your special day!

Yes this is a possibility, depending on your weddings needs. Please feel free to email Jontue Elan as the details of this will be better be discussed in poerson or via email.

A deposit of half of the quote is required at the time of booking. The remainder of the payment is required on the day of the wedding.
