Why Choose between a Great Band and a DJ when you can have BOTH?

Our Journey

In 2009, our frontman Singer/MC Jay Della Valle and frontwoman/Singer/Violinist Nicole DeLoi joined forces, creating Owls & Lions. With our drummer/percussionist Kevin Walters and additional members added due to high demand, we’ve since rocked over 750 weddings & private events!

The Band

Up to a seven-piece ensemble, each member is chosen for their multiple talents. From male lead vocalist/guitarist to female lead vocalist/violinist and a powerhouse rhythm section, our sets are designed to keep the dance floor alive. We’re versatile too, offering intimate performances as a Guitar/Violin duo or an abbreviated trio or quartet for smaller events.

Musical Style

We cover a range of genres, from Pop and Rock to Indie, Folk Rock, and a hint of Country and Irish music, ensuring a night filled with singing, dancing, and happy guests of all ages.

Continuous Entertainment

When the band takes a break, the party doesn’t stop. With over 20 years of experience, Jay Della Valle seamlessly transitions into a seasoned MC/DJ, keeping the music going and facilitating any necessary announcements or formalities.

ARE YOU NOT SURE WHAT A DJ/BAND HYBRID IS?

This is a term that has come to describe an entertainment scenario which involves both a DJ and live musician elements in different variations, depending on the preference of the client or the requirements of the event. It is different from company to company. With Owls & Lions, we offer various packages that feature Owls & Lions as both a stand-alone band AND also within a format that has them performing their instruments AND singing over the masterfully mixed instrumentals of some of the hottest DJ dance tracks. The ability for Owls & Lions to toggle back and forth between a DJ/Band format and also a simple folk Duo/Trio format (which is so suitable for so many clients and venues) makes them very desirable. They provide a top-level wedding service while always keeping it intimate, personal, and fun! See examples of their DJ/Band Hybrid format below.
