I am not your average everyday cellist. With somethings old and somethings old theres enjoyment for everyone! From Classical Bach to Rocking Metallica, you name it and I can play it. Acoustic is perfect for most occasions but, technology such as amps and effect pedals offers variety that will make your wedding or any event that much more special.
On top of performances, I also offer convenient lessons for beginning to intermediate musicians in music theory and performance.
Want something completely new? I also arrange music and write original compositions!
Joe’l is a professional, well dressed and punctual! Excellent musician! Everyone enjoyed his music!
Response from Joe'L & Mari'Gale:
Thank you so much for the review! I had a great time. The atmosphere was so fitting and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to work with you and entertain your guests.
Joe'l was professional, prepared and friendly. It was great working with Joe'l!
Joe'L was absolutely amazing to work with!! He is so very musically talented and knowledgeable. Joe'L worked with us based on our budget and even met us at a local park where he played several pieces for us to choose from. He was able to play anything I requested for my big day. He exceeded our expectations. Though he made my guests cry (wink), he alone, truly made my wedding ceremony a dream come true. He plays beautifully and with such enthusiasm. I humbly recommend Joe'l for any event!!
Price Range: $200 and up. Payment plans/financing available!

I am eager to be of any assistance so feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you may have.
Over Eight years and counting, cello has been my secondary voice. Theres so much to say but, if you'd like to know me better here's a bit about myself.
Born on January 20th 1997, in Bronx NY I was raised by a single father doing his very best make it on his own. I spent my earlier years traveling with my father to various places, going back and forth between different states until eventually settling down in Jacksonville, NC to care for my late grandfather. Consequently, I had the opportunity to meet various musical artist, and thanks to our travels, I have been exposed to all sorts of musical culture.
Ever since my years as a young child, perhaps since kindergarten, I have always been interested in music. Some of my lasting music related memories as a child were of me improvising simple melodies on my father's digital piano as he, along with my grandparents, watched . Be it a recorder, keyboard, or drums, anything that made a musical sound I just had to have my hands on it. Perhaps the highlight of my day as an elementary school student was music class.
My original dream as a young child was to become a robot scientist. Music at the time was more of a hobby, something that was on the on the back burner, when in reality, it has been a profound constant in my life. With the majority of my relatives having some sort of musical ability, one could say that music is in my blood.
After starting on the violin in the sixth grade, I later switched to the cello the next school year. Since then, the cello has been my number one instrument. Over the years my love for music has been constantly growing and growing.
My main goal in life is to successfully share the love of music with as many people as possible and expand their minds to new experiences.
Additional Booking Notes
Almost anywhere with enough room for my instrument and small setup is suitable. If it is outdoors, please be aware of weather conditions as cellos are very fragile instruments. Lighting and sound are usually of no real issue for I come prepared with my own stand light and medium-sized amplifier. For best sound, I would personally suggest areas with low external noise and good reverberation and acoustic treatment/design.
