5* – Shanty – Birthday party in Chigwell – March 2022

“We booked Joe for my 40th birthday party. We loved the fact that he did music from various decades and wide variety of genres. Also like the way he put his own twist on the songs. From first contact Joe was so helpful organising the playlist and sorting out logistics. Everyone at the party loved him and commented about the singer. Joe was really down to earth great guy, great singer and would be a great addition to any event, highly recommend.”

5* – Nur, wedding in Chelsea – March 2022

“Joe is the ultimate professional – and won over guests of all ages (from fussy teens all the way up to family in their 70s and 80s!) which is no easy task!
So glad we booked him and he was a part of our special day!

As some of my relatives are Turkish, I asked Joe if he could play 1 or 2 instrumentals of some popular Turkish pop songs if he could find the music sheets online – he ended up learning the handful of songs I shared with him, sang in Turkish the choruses of each and created a Turkish mega mix for us. Even my UK friends are still going on about it 6 weeks later! To be clear, Joe had never heard these songs before and does not speak Turkish.

We planned a wedding in 1 month and appreciated Joe’s approach – he shared his suggested playlists which were all great and had a bit of everything for all music tastes and contacted the venue himself to understand noise restrictions and logistics to free up our time. He’s proactive and doesn’t need hand holding.

He’s got an amazing voice and vibe and experience of judging the room which was important to us given it was a small intimate wedding (40 people) and we really weren’t sure how the day would land.

It is testament to not only what an amazing talent Joe is but how driven he is in making your special day everything you want it to be.

There were some songs I also wanted my husband and I to hear together so I told Joe what these were and he didn’t let us down – with a busy wedding and Photo Booth and toilet breaks etc. we weren’t always in the same spot but some how Joe managed it.

Thanks so much, Joe 💕”

5* – Katie, Wedding in Chichester – October 2022

“One of the highlights to our day! After searching the internet for hours for an artist that was fun, had a great song list and performed well, we finally came across Joe, and we’re so glad that we did. Joe was so professional and helpful throughout the whole booking process, from adjusting out quote so we could have him play for the whole day and offering advice on what he thought would work best in his experience, he made everything so easy! He met and exceeded all our requests, Joe learnt the bridal entrance aisle song perfectly and made the moment I had been thinking about long before getting engaged a reality, it was absolutely perfect. We used Joe for our Ceremony, Drinks Reception and for after dinner, pre-party drinks (a more upbeat set) and he was incredible, we have received SO many compliments about how good Joe was on the day. We are so glad that we had him, I only wish as Bride and Groom we got to stop, listen and enjoy his performances more! If you’re thinking about it, just do it! Joe is SO worth it!”

5* – Tina, Surprise birthday party in Reading – January 2023

Joe was great. Communication leading up to the event date was excellent. Joe answered all questions very quickly. Learnt two new songs at very short notice. Joes performance was just brilliant. Sounded great and song choices were perfect for our guests. Would definitely recommend Joe to anyone. Thanks Joe.

5*Alicia and Jimmy, Wedding at Dorney Court, July 2022

“When enquiring with Joe to perform at my wedding reception he communicated well, he made sure he got a good understanding of the type of music both me and my fiancé liked, and spent the time to get to know us and the crowd that was going. The song selection emailed through was varied, with so much to choose from. If I could have I would have picked all of them! Joe made sure he kept in contact, which when planning a big wedding was so helpful and reassuring ! Joe performed an acoustic set at our drinks reception, it was perfect. The quality of his performance, interaction with the crowd and songs played kept the vibes so high and made it a truly wonderful day. All my wedding guests said how great Joe was, I even had friends of friends contact me for his information after seeing him on my instagram page. My maid of honour has also booked Joe to perform at her wedding next year – which I’m so excited about to do it all again! Thanks Joe for making mine and Jimmys wedding so special.”

5* – Rosie, Events Officer for Horatio’s Garden (a UK charity), Charity fundraising event, August 2022

Prior to the event Joe was extremely professional, well organised and very responsive.

I can’t wait to have Joe at our next events, and other guests said the same.”

5* – Michael, Garden party in St Albans, July 2022

“Garden Party with Joe Playing – simply superb!”

“Joe played at my garden birthday party and was absolutely superb. Everyone loved listening to his music and he was also kind enough to learn some of our favourite tracks.

He has a great voice and everyone commented on how good he was. He really helped to make the party a memorable one.

As well as being a very talented musician he also happens to be a really nice guy.

I will definitely be booking Joe again.”

5* – Adrian – Home studio recording, October 2022

Excellent, We asked Joe to sing on a couple of recordings, so this was not your usual gig. Joe was enthusiastic, helpful and professional throughout. He really went beyond what was required, a great guy to have around.

5* – Ally – 40th birthday party in Watford, March 2022

“We booked Joe to play at my 40th birthday party, he was super friendly, helpful and quick to respond from the get go. Joe totally understood the vibe I was after for my party and was so helpful with ideas and willing to learn a couple of new songs that he knew were special to me.  On the night Joe was the absolute heart of the evening, everyone was on the dancefloor and we absolutely danced the night away. He was the perfect blend of live music/ live lounge style/ 90’s bangers and dancefloor fillers which was everything I had asked for and more.  Joe had a smile on his face the entire evening and was an absolute joy to have as part of my special night.I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again and cant recommend him highly enough.”

5* – Kay – Hen Party in Kent, June 2021

“Thank you Joe for helping to make my friend Katie’s hen party so fun! You were so accommodating before the party and on the day to ensure your repertoire matched our party’s vibe and happy to incorporate both planned and impromptu song requests. Your singing was excellent and definitely got the party started. I would have no hesitation in booking you again when the occasion arises.

5* – Nicole T – Wedding in Braintree, September 2021

“We booked Joe for our wedding to play during the reception drinks and I am SO pleased that we did. He was amazing and created such a wonderful atmosphere for the guests. Incredibly talented and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed him playing. Communication throughout the booking process was faultless and he was very open to try what we wanted whilst also giving his own professional opinion which was really beneficial. I would recommend Joe time and time again, hopefully we’ll have another party soon where we can book him again! Thank you again Joe.”

Can 100% recommend Joe for any proposal or any event without hesitation. He made us feel at ease, and he made it a very special proposal.”
