As a duo that sounds like a band, Brightenstar’s memorable performances reflect their vast experiences with audiences of all types. Their song list covering rock and pop cover songs, with a hint of country, ranges from as far back as the Beatles to as as recent as Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Miranda Lambert, Daft Punk, Colbie Caillat and more. There’s music for nearly every age group to enjoy.


Jenna sings, plays keyboard, guitar, and ukulele. Neil sings as well, plays guitar, ukulele, and bass, and commands an array of devices that expand Brightenstar to well beyond the sound of typical duos. And it’s all done with nothing prerecorded, save for a drum machine accompaniment.


With a full sound that rivals many bands with more members, Brightenstar uses the state-of-the-art Bose L1 sound system (for most events.) The system delivers crystal-clear sound that fills the room without overpowering your guests that want to talk and mingle.

With Brightenstar, you get the sound of a band, at ANY volume

Note: Brightenstar band member Neil was formerly with two other award-winning duos, The Jay and Neil Show, and Pairadeux.

"This is a dynamic duo – so adept at pulling a crowd together to have fun and enjoy their music!!!"
Sherry Smiley - Private Party, Elitch's - Denver, CO


"This band was great! The crowd loved them and we have received so many compliments on them. They were great because they understood that they mainly background music for the event, but at the end of the night they played at the request of the crowd. I would highly recommend them!"
Heather O., Empty Bowl charity event for the Crisis Center, Castle Rock, CO
