Nashville born and raised Jerry Wise, co-founder of the band, is one of the men at the heart of Matchmaker Band. After a successful career performing Christian music, Jerry found himself drawn to Austin, where he became a minister and worship leader. He then connected with Amos at a local church only to realize they both had the desire to collaborate with other musicians in a way that would be fun and rewarding for both the band and their audience.
Thus, Matchmaker Band was born, and that creative outlet has since turned into a thriving business venture and an opportunity to be involved in unforgettable celebrations with his valued clients.
The newness of the live band experience for clients is one of Wise’s favorite aspects of performing at events. He knows that most have never hired musicians before, and he happily takes on the task of navigating them through the process smoothly.
Wise is also grateful to work with a team of amazing musicians who are like family. When not performing, Wise can be found with his own family, including wife Megan, who also performs in Matchmaker Band. He enjoys travel, watching movies, working on handyman tasks, skiing, and is even known to be quite the secret tech nerd.
