I am a professional, dynamic and enthusiastic entertainer specializing in the solo performance of 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's music plus original songs I write. I also do a complete Christmas Program each December and special concerts based on immensely popular entertainers such as Glen Campbell and Elvis Presley. I entertain throughout the Jacksonville, Florida area in high-end Assisted Living Centers on a monthly basis, per the request of both management and residents. I have excellent Letters of Reference. I am hopefully, the best performer "you've never heard of." I encourage you to give me a chance and I'll make sure you don't regret the experience.
Very happy with results of 86th Birthday for my Father. Ed Arrington with Joyful Spirit arrived early, tested, set-up and was ready to go before party began. The song selections were what my 80 plus parents and guests remembered. They even danced. Priceless. Ed also went the extra mile to provide a list of selected songs beforehand and opportunity to add any not covered. I (We) are very happy and will call Ed again.
Response from Joyful Spirit:
I am privileged and honored to receive such a review. I look forward to serving Linda again, when possible, and anyone else who desires the professionalism and effort I work real hard to impart. Thanks again, Linda.

What to Expect
An excellent, professional performance from a highly skilled performer who knows how to use his talent to entertain and engage an audience. You will see a performer that is confident and outstanding in the interaction with any audience. I have been performing for 60 years.
I am an extremely talented male singer, retired from the United States Air Force. I can perform complete, professional, enthusiastic and colorful concerts in three areas: Popular songs from the early 1900's up through 1950's era; original Christian music I have written and recorded; Country and Southern Gospel concerts. I have 60 years of performance experience and currently perform at many high-end Assisted Living Centers throughout the Jacksonville, Florida area. I can provide excellent references. An event planner can expect a performance from me that will go far beyond what anyone expects. I surprise almost everyone with my talent, ability, commitment, enthusiasm, and dedication to the craft of performing.
Additional Booking Notes
I have my own sound system or could use one that was already provided.
