Joe did an absolutely fantastic job playing at our wedding - from the moment we decided on the song we wanted to walk down the aisle to, I knew that Joe was the perfect choice for us. He did a beautiful job at learning that song, and I have loved listening back at the recording of our ceremony and the music he played at it. Whilst the unpredictable weather meant he couldn’t play outside at our drinks reception, I know that a number of people inside still heard much of what he played during this segment of the day and loved his music. Thank you so much Joe: your professionalism meant that working with you was a dream, and I would not hesitate to book you again or recommend you to others!

Joe was excellent and his performance was great. He understood the nature of the event and matched his set and playing to it perfectly to add the extra bit of ambience to the event. He is also a very pleasant and friendly guy.

I cannot speak highly enough about Joe! Leading up to our wedding celebration his communication was excellent, he'd always reply promptly and do anything he could to help. He accompanied a few of my friends for the recessional and it was incredible. The guests LOVED IT!! Joe is a brilliant musician, with a wonderful demeanour; I would not hesitate to book him for another event.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I think clients like my performances most for my unique repertoire and for hopefully creating a great atmosphere!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Roundhouse, The O2 Forum Kentish Town, Koko, Scala, Bush Hall, plenty of arenas around Europe and lots of lovely British churches!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The Beatles, Tommy Emmanuel, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer, Lianne La Havas, Tom Misch, Nao, Joy Crookes

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem. Just let me know when you have the new timings and with enough notice it most likely won't be a problem!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. I'm more than happy to play music through my speakers between sets and a bit before/after at no extra cost. If you would like this service for longer than 20 minutes before or after my sets or would like to use the speaker for speeches, just let me know before booking and we can work out an additional fee.

How much time do you need to set up?

Really I can get set up in 10-15 minutes but ideally I like to arrive an hour before I start just to be safe!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Definitely! For wedding ceremonies especially, I would always encourage you to pick some songs from my list that are special to you - I will happily make recommendations and talk you through options! Otherwise it is generally ideal to have some flexibility on the day to play what I think will work best but if you have more requests that's totally fine.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yep! All I will need is access to an electrical outlet and a chair :) Or just a chair if you book me to play unplugged!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes (with enough notice)! If you book me for your wedding ceremony then I can learn a new piece for the processional for free. I charge £35 per additional request to account for the time it takes to put new arrangements together. If for any reason it isn't possible for me to learn your request, I can always play it through my speaker during breaks!
