You will also hear many of your acoustic favorites by James Taylor, Kenny Chesney, Dan Fogelberg and more! Whether you are looking to book an artist for a quiet "listening" type of venue such as a house concert or coffee house, or a more energetic "Parrothead party", Joel will fit right in!
Price Range: $200 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
Joel performs as a solo, acoustic, singer/songwriter and is very adaptable to the audience. Relying on 24 years of radio broadcasting experience, Joel not only can sing your favorite song, but knows how to interact with the audience!
As a singer/songwriter, Joel can perform a complete set of original music complemented with background stories and adventures.
As a Trop-Rock artist, Joel can play enough songs by Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and other "Island" style artists to entertain a complete "Parrothead" bash for hours!
As an acoustic Country/Soft Rock artist, Joel can fill a show with familiar songs by Luke Bryan, Brooks and Dunn, James Taylor, Garth Brooks, Dan Fogelberg, George Strait, and more!
Typically, what you can expect from a Joel Block show is a fun combination of all of the above!
Hello from the Gulf Coast of Texas! I am a Harley ridin' sailor that loves to be outdoors and lives to write and sing about it. If you enjoy acoustic songs that focus on getting away from it all and enjoying life to it's fullest, then we have a lot in common.
I enjoy most music and welcome the opportunity to let you hear my own creations as well as the songs that shape my life on a daily basis. From Jimmy Buffett to Eric Church, Springsteen to my own stuff, I hope you enjoy it. Let me know....!

Influences & Inspiration
I've been heavily influenced by Jimmy Buffett since I started playing guitar in the early 1980's. His ability to tell a story without a lot of "flash" in his songs is amazing. The songwriting of Paul Simon, Dan Fogelberg, and James Taylor have contributed greatly to my musical journey as well.
I travel with a everything I need from the instruments to the PA system, so I don't require any special items for most shows. Contact me if you have a question or concern.
