Absolutely awesome.

By Raj on January 14, 2017

Joanne turned out to be a hit with guests. Her range is amazing. Very pleased

Hired as: Opera Singer

Joanne was a great help for our wedding and made the day come alive with her musical talents. Several of my guests commented to me that they loved her singing and thought at first that she was just playing the music because her voice was able to perfectly fit into the songs. She is a sweet person who was able to handle a lot of changes in our wedding line up becoming our announcer and at times finding music on the fly for special requests. Thanks again Joanne.

Arneson's Mystique Estates Holiday Party

By Greg A. on December 8, 2014

Joanne and her band exceeded our expectations which were quite high already based on her web sites recordings which we listened to determine who we wanted. Not only did we increase the scope of the by asking her to put together a 5 piece band, but we requested a play list, both request were professionally met! It was obvious when she arrived that she had the group ready, and she came well before the start time to allow setting up, adjusting for placement of equipment, and final warm-up. The 3 set evening included jazz, contemporary, and rock, with a great piece by Arianna Grande! We would highly endorse Joanne and her group for anyone who wants someone with a wide range of music capability, easy nature, and attractive professional performance.

AMAZING VOICE, SIMPLY CAPTIVATING

By Ruth B. on October 26, 2014

We hired Joanne to perform at my father's 80th birthday party and she exceeded all of our expectations. She has an incredible voice and our guests were mesmerized by her performance. She is very professional and truly a joy to work with. I was so impressed with her and would love working with her in the future if we have another event.

Beautiful voice, and a consummate professional

By James M. on September 19, 2014

Joanne provided an absolutely beautiful rendition of "All I Ask of You" for a duet from Studio 26 in an extremely timely and professional fashion sending her files via WeTransfer. Her performance was superb and her professionalism was impeccable. She is a wonderful person who is a true joy to work with, and is highly recommended.

Truly One of a Kind Singer

By Juan R. on August 23, 2014

Joanne captures the essence of opera with the precision of her vocal abilities and and her theater style performance. She is an artist that can grace much larger stages, and I have no doubt that she will do so.

One of a kind performance!

By Michelle G. on October 8, 2012

I had the privilege to hear Joanne sing privately - I don't know what she was singing - but tears ran down my face ... her voice has so much emotion and feeling. Thank you Joanne for sharing with me and my family - you are truly special and gifted. Your friend

Above our expectations

By Arthur S. on July 3, 2012

My wife and I utilized the services of Joanne for our friend's Memorial Service. She found her through the internet and was most impressed with her resume and the audios found on the site. What we did not realize was the true beauty and richness of her voice in a live setting. After attending an opera recital the night before we had a live comparison and realized what a truly professional singer she is. We plan on using her in the future for a different venue and would definitely recommend her services.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 60 - 240 minutes
  • Fee: $500 -2000
  • Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish

Overview

I have a wide set list that spans Bossa Novas, 50's Jazz, Broadway, Opera and contemporary songs from artists like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Bonnie Raite, Melissa Ethridge, ZZ Ward, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Donna Summer and much more. We can tailor the performance to the music that you enjoy the most given at least a month's notice. I also know some traditional Italian Neapolitan songs. Preparing a set takes many hours and a lot of work. Once a setlist is designated, we cannot change it the day before a show or add new songs. If you must have a new song, the change fee is $100 per song due to the many hours it takes to learn and work through the song. Live music is very demanding on the musicians. Tracks take countless hours to memorize their specific tempo and to sing precisely with it. All shows are minimum $400/hr which includes all equipment, state of the art sound systems, Microphones, tables and all essentials required to put on a high quality event. There is an additional charge of $50 for events that are an hour or more away.

Additional Booking Notes

We bring all equipment such as wireless mikes, Bose L1 Compact Sound System and we can provide photography or video. Please ask about pictures and video if you would like that.
