Joe was fantastic! We would definitely book him again for other events. He has an excellent ear, work ethic, and professional attitude. He responded quickly to all of our questions, and he helped create an enjoyable evening for all of our guests.

Joe was one of the best solo musicians I've worked with in a long time! As a planner, I've worked with many musicians before but Joe was incredibly quick to respond in communication, very flexible with the playlist of songs the bride asked him to incorporate into to the cocktail hour agenda, and frequently smiled and interacted with the wedding guests while he continued to play! He was such a hit. I would strongly recommend Joe to other planners and couples, and would highly recommend securing his services for any events! Such a great compliment to the perfect wedding day! Thanks, Joe :)
