"Upgrade your wedding."
Tony Bennett says: "Your voice sounds beautiful, Joe. Keep singing!"
Joe Caruso (vocals) and his superb backing trio (piano, upright bass and drums) perform popular jazz classics like "Fly Me to the Moon," "The Way You Look Tonight," "What a Wonderful World," "New York State of Mind," as well as other pop standards and love songs.
Joe relies on a vocal technique called the bel canto (Italian, "beautiful singing") method. Tony Bennett once said that as a student of this discipline, he was taught to get to the center of the note, and that this is the essence of bel canto singing. A protege of Mr. Bennett, Joe is renowned for his great phrasing, clarity of diction and sheer thrill of sound.
The singer says that, for most people, "When they hear our demo, or see us live, they immediately realize how elegant, romantic, and memorable it will be to have us performing for them, and their guests."
One thing Joe stresses is his ability to understand and deliver the atmosphere people are trying to create.
If you're searching for that special ingredient to make sure your event is ultra-romantic and memorable, it's time to get with The Sinatra of South Texas.
What are your rates?
Each event is unique (date, location, length, etc.). We offer variable pricing.
What can I expect?
From San Antonio to San Francisco, the name Joe Caruso is synonymous with quality.
From the shine on his shoes to the dimple in his tie, before Joe even sings a note, it's obvious he is intent on excellence. Joe says, "I take great pride in making certain every detail is just right, and that the music be the soundtrack to a fairytale evening you and your guests will remember forever."
Can you also serve as emcee?
Yes. An award-winning broadcaster for over 25 years, Joe will make the perfect emcee for your event.

I’m surprised there aren’t more reviews here for Joe. He and his band are extremely professional, polite, friendly and talented. He may cost more than a DJ but is worth it, especially if you want to class up your reception. He was prompt in responding to all emails and requests within reason. Our guests loved his band and we had people of all ages dancing. He can even play contemporary songs such as “Kiss” by Prince and act as MC/emcee. Don’t hesitate to hire!Sent on 07/08/2018

Words cannot express how happy we were in booking Joe and his band for our wedding and reception. We really wanted a romantic, joyful celebration from ceremony through reception, and Joe and his band delivered in a BIG way. Joe plays around town from time to time. The first time we heard him, we knew he was exactly what we wanted to set the mood for the evening. HIs tone is INCREDIBLE.Sent on 11/19/2015
Joe learned two songs at our request, and they were both just incredibly beautiful. Our guests raved about him all night long, when they weren't on the dance floor! I can't imagine having anyone else provide the soundtrack to our evening.
Before our wedding, Joe took the time to speak to us about the venue, our desires and preferences. He answered every email in a very timely manner and was incredibly flexible in ensuring all of our entertainment needs were met from ceremony through reception.
We can't wait to hear him around town again.

I highly recommend Joe Caruso and his band for any event that you would like to add a fantastic live band along with Joe's beautiful vocals. He sang at my daughter's wedding reception and it was the highlight of the evening. Joe is extremely professional and met with me a couple of times before the event to go over all the details. He worked hard to satisfy all our requests and even learned a particular song that we wanted him to sing. Joe also served as the emcee of the reception which kept the event lively and entertaining. Joe is a class act who is a pleasure to work with and a really nice guy!Sent on 02/23/2015
