Brilliant, beautiful, and boisterous music of any genre, played on violin for all types of events.
Joe was very professional and engaged with guests and answered small talk music questions between playing. We requested that Joe perform a last song on our Lanai as the sun was setting. Joe was so accommodating. I connected with Joe to play for my sister and her husband for their Wedding Renewal dinner. Joe touched peoples heart strings when he was playing, brought a tear to my sisters eyes and others 🎻 We would definitely hire him for other events .

Joe Henderson was wonderful! He was on time, very professional and played exactly what we wanted. His playing was beautiful! If he needs any references please contact me.
Response from Joe Henderson:
Thank you so much, Lauri! You and Bill were so personable and easy to work with. I wish you two the best.
Joe could not make it to the event but he had his good friend Kieron and a friend of Kieron that came and stepped in. There performance was off the chart. I never knew that a violin and guitar could sound so good together. Most of our audience wasn't use to a violinist but fail in love with the style of music this was excellent decision that left our audience wanting more. I want to thank Joe for recommending his friend and we hope to have Joe perform in the future.
Joe was absolutely Amazing. The music selection was honored and played to perfection. I definitely will be calling him again to play at our next event.
He and his friend who plays the cello were absolutely amazing! They made the night so spectacular with new-age romantic songs played beautifully. They were professional and just overall great. 10/10 I’ve already recommended them to my friends.
Joe is absolutely amazing, and easy to work with. He played for my wedding and made the ceremony a wonderful experience with his talented performance. I would absolutely recommend him for any of your musical needs!
Joe was extremely professional and flexible with our music choices, even when we made last minute changes. He played beautifuly and was responsive to any questions or requests I had. I would highly recommend hiring him and would have him play again given the opportunity!
I hired Joe to play some classical music at a memorial service for my deceased mom. His playing was simply wonderful. He performed Thais Meditation, Air on a G String, Adagio in G Minor and Abide With Me. His talent and technical abilities are excellent. We highly recommend Joe to anyone who wants a great violinist to play at an event.
