Welcome to my website. My name is Jan Vytásek and I am a singer and songwriter from Prague. You could have notice me in local bands Professor, Lightmotif, PartyLeaders, Co, Prague Queen Tribute and most importantly with my accompany band under the name Jan Vytásek & Blackbirds, which has been around since 2002. Some of you might have noticed me playing my original songs at the bars and festivals or seen me on TV, internet, or heard me on the independent airplay. Who knows.
I perform at concerts and festivals mostly with my original songs in Czech and English and some of my favorite cover versions and many years I’ve been performing as an event singer at gala events, private or corporate events with the repertoire of world famous cover-versions, added with some of my original songs if it’s suitable. This depends on actual kind of event or agreement with the organizer. Mostly I perform in the Czech Republic, but from time to time I take my old car and make some gigs outside. Who knows, maybe I’ll come nearby you too :).
Be sure to follow me at Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (which is in English), and check my videos on YouTube.

Jan is also well known for his interpretation of classical material and pop-rock cover versions, formerly the Beatles and later Queen. There is no coincidence, that Freddie Mercury´s assistant Peter Freestone himself came to support him as a godfather for his debut album, among with local icon Peter Janda, later followed by famous lyricist Michal Horáček (later also promising presidential candidate). Jan has been a guest for many local and abroad events and became very frequently requested entertainer for gala events.

Event agencies review:
Jan is a phenomenal singer with unbelievable vocal range, so he can deliver your favorite hit song in proper key with an authentic presentation. Hearing his interpretation of, for example Freddie Mercury (Queen), is truly heart-warming experience. He is a rocker and balladeer with romantic soul, and beside that, clean-limbed man with great energy to share.
– PartyLeaders Agency
There is a fine mixture of rock drive and melodic belcanto flavour in Jan´s voice. This explains the
interpretation ability of both spicy rock classics along with smooth balads.
