Brilliant, beautiful, and boisterous music of any genre, played on violin for all types of events.
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.
