ABOUT JESS INDEEDY
Firstly, I’d like to thank you for visiting my website. Nice to see you!
I deeply believe that I was put on this earth to make life more fun. Ever since I was a small child I’ve been entertaining and finding the fun in all situations. It is a natural part of who I am, so throwing parties and being silly is my happy place. This is a gift that I share with the world through creating events and providing information to people who want more fun in their lives. To me, having fun is as important to our health as eating vegetables.
I am a presenter, a DJ, a singer, an event designer and promoter, and a music geek with a passion for food and fashion. I am the Managing Director of Indeedy Inc., an event design company that plans exciting events for the public and for private functions. We also offer branding and design advice to fun, nice companies that we want to support. Sign up for fun, free updates from me and Indeedy Inc. here.
Music is one of my greatest passions, and no genre is safe from my exploration. My performance career began as a singer in a Led Zeppelin covers band called M.I.A. at age 11, in my native Connecticut. Teenage years were spent in various theatre productions, rock bands, and school choir. I went on to study at SCSU in New Haven and CCFS at La Sorbonne in Paris, obtained a B.A. in Music and performed in jazz, rock, and electronic groups. I still perform in a classical choir and write silly songs on my laptop. I will forever be a student of music.
I’ve lived in New Haven, Paris, New York and finally London, where I now call home.
I spent some time in the magazine and online publishing industry within the international cosmetics and luxury markets. Travelling the world for work was exciting and I feel very lucky to have visited so many different places. I lost my mom to cancer in 2007, which was a very sad and life-changing experience for me. I realised life can be so short – and that I wasn’t doing what I was meant to do. I left my job in 2009 to start my own business as a ‘funtrepreneur’ and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done for my happiness, relationships, family, and overall life enjoyment and fun.
I have been presenting Indeedy Musical Bingo with my husband and soul mate, Charles ‘Helix’ Brockbank since we started it in August 2007. From the moment I presented our very first round I knew I was in the right place! We’ve spent 7 wonderful years building this and we’ve reached the heady heights of playing all the big festivals, private members clubs, corporate events, and the best venues across the UK and New York City. We’ll be putting on Indeedy Musical Bingo until we’re geriatric – it’s our life’s work and is borne out of our love for fun, music and each other.
In 2010 we created the world’s first list-making night, I Love Lists, which is partly self-improvement, and partly a snapshot of London’s consciousness, but mostly an opportunity to have fun with your friends and to get to know ourselves a little better. I started this night to help people define their goals and dreams through the power of making lists. I believe that once you put something on paper it has a much better chance of actually happening!
I DJ regularly around London, but I’m not your normal DJ. I dance behind those decks and I play my favourite songs. I do not try to be cool – all I want is for every single person in the room to have fun with their friends and to relax. When I DJ I feel like I’m playing songs for my friends in my living room (really fun, dance-worthy stuff).
To get regular updates on my events, where I’m DJing, and ways to have more fun in your life, just sign up for my mailing list here. The emails I send are super fun and you’ll be glad to get them, I promise.
I am good at talking. People think I have a unique voice. So sometimes people hire me to do voiceovers. I think they’re fun and I enjoy trying out different ‘characters’. I can do regional American accents but please don’t ask me to do British ones (not one of my strengths unless you want a Dick Van Dyke effect).
