Joe is very experienced and professional. Loved how he played his guitar and the drums. He brought all his own equipment and even helped our minister and soloist with theirs!

Thank you Joe! Erin and Jeremy

Joe and his wife were amazing and very professional. Joe was so nice and easy to talk to about how I wanted the ceremony and reception to go and if there was anything specific I wanted played. He did an absolutely beautiful job playing the guitar for my ceremony and his randition of "A Thousand Years" as I walked down the aisle was breathtaking. The steel drums were amazing and so many guests complimented us on how they enjoyed the different music for the reception. I thank Joe for doing all of our music for the cocktail hour, ceremony and reception, he truely did an outstanding job.

Joe was great to work with. I was planning a surprise 25th Wedding Anniversary Vow Renewal on 6/28/16. He was fantastic responding to my emails and texts because that was the easiest way for me to communicate. His music was the perfect touch to our ceremony on Lido Beach. And when the ceremony started some had a difficult time hearing our officiant and he stepped right in handing her his microphone - perfect! I highly recommend Joe!!

We highly recommend Joe - he is an amazing musician! His steel pan and classical guitar music is second to none and his repertoire is massive. We were thrilled to have Joe play at our son's rehearsal dinner. Being from the islands we wanted our musical heritage to be included in the evening's celebrations and Joe delivered beyond our very high expectations. We are completely satisfied - thank you so very much Joe!
