Wow, just wow! This lovely young man performed a superb set of covers at our reception, his voice is simply incredible. Cannot recommend Joey enough, you made our special day one to remember. Thank you so much for doing a DJ set for the rest of the duration of the night, we had everyone up dancing away. Wishing you all the best for the future, all the best Mike and Jen. :)

Ruby, 1 year ago

Joey stepped in last minute to cover someone and he performed two 45 minute sets of upbeat and well known rock/pop classics. All of our students loved his enthusiasm. He even hosted a musical chairs game at the end for us, even though we never asked him this beforehand. Thank you so much Joey for your politeness and professionalism. We'll see you again soon
