The best wedding music ever!

We can’t say enough great things about Joe! Our original venue canceled on us less than 48 hours out and Joe didn’t even blink an eye at the change in plans. His music was amazing, so many of our guests complimented it. His saxophone is the perfect addition to any wedding. His music is so upbeat and happy and we had a blast! You wouldn’t have even known we got married during a hurricane, everyone had such a good time!
Also I’m a professional wedding florist so I’ve worked a lot of weddings and met a lot of vendors, so when I say someone is great, they truly are!

The best cocktail hour/dinner live music!

Joe played during the cocktail and dinner reception at our intimate wedding! He was absolutely wonderful to work with and worked with us to pick the songs to play. He is so great live, the best touch to have at a wedding.

Joe Tierney
Joe Tierney

Originally hailing from Shawano, Wisconsin, Joe Tierney began playing music at a young age. He went on to study music and history at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire where he had the opportunity to learn from and perform with some of the most highly-respected jazz musicians and educators in the world.

He graduated college in 2012 and began his music career in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, performing with many world-class musicians and bands. In 2015 he escaped the clutches of an eternal winter and relocated to the Treasure Coast of Florida to join the premier Oktoberfest band in the country, The Alex Meixner Band. “Zigge Zagge Zigge Zagge, Hoi Hoi Hoi!!”

After a few years of traveling the country in lederhosen, Joe…having since been bestowed with the ubiquitous nickname “Sweet Butter”…decided to step back from touring and focus on performing locally in South Florida as well as teaching private lessons. Over time he carefully crafted the truly unique solo show that you see today.
