"Georgie Bonds, a man who's voice has the power to shake the walls - without a microphone - yet also has the smooth gentle warmth characteristic of the finest balladeer's. Singing is his life, and anyone who has heard Georgie instantly understands why." - S.P. Clyde Boger
We hired them to perform at our exhibition opening last November. It was a pleasant experience and highly recommend Joe & his band. If you're looking for a soulful sound, you have found it. We had people singing in our lobby to the songs he performed. Wonderful memories. EP.L. 11/19/12
As an event planner I work with a lot of different groups, D.J.'s and entertainers. This was my first time booking the Joe Wahl Band and I was a little concerned. I heard their demo online and did like what I saw and what I heard. I took the risk and well, let me tell you....I made the right choice, because this group is absolutely fantastic. They looked good...they sounded awesome.....and it was an wonderful evening for us all, very reasonably priced. Your music can make it your event good or bad.....our event was incredible...thank you for entertaining us. Look forward to working with you all again!! -- Doris G.
