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!

We booked Joe for our wedding in July and can honestly say that he was such a highlight and we would 100% recommend him to anyone who is searching for a musician for any event! From the beginning, his communication was so friendly and professional and the music on the day was just perfect. We are so happy and thankful to Joe for adding such a beautiful element to our day!

Joe is an extremely professional and talented musician who made my wife’s birthday a very memorable occasion. Joe’s communication from the outset and throughout was excellent taking the time to explain the process and helping me choose a playlist. Joe arrived promptly and set up and left almost unnoticed. A personal email the following day to check we were happy was a lovely gesture and a hallmark of his great service. Our sincere thanks Joe.

We booked Joe for our wedding ceremony and we can’t recommend him highly enough. Aside from being incredibly talented and having an amazing repertoire, Joe was so easy to work with, and helped us out with recommendations. He incorporated a special request for my bridal entrance with complete ease and it was perfect. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was and Joe really set the scene for a great day. I am very grateful to him for making the process so easy, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Thank you Joe.

Joe was absolutely brilliant and made walking down the aisle and the reception so special. It was no problem for him to learn a song for us and he didn’t mind accompanying a friend who sang it. Nothing was too much trouble! There were major delays to the start of our day but Joe managed to get there on time and carried on playing until everyone had arrived. Such a talented guitarist, I can’t recommend him enough!!
