Quiet, unobtrusive and everything we'd hoped for!

5 stars - Joe William are Highly Recommended booked Joe William for their event in Hampshire October 2019

“We knew before Joe arrived that all would be well. An email, followed by a text when he thought he might be late (he wasn't) was very reassuring. That was half the battle, keeping us well informed. On arrival he quickly set up and got our 'background' music on whilst guests arrived. Followed later in the evening by a 'live' session with backing tracks, although he seems to be no mean artist on the guitar. We had a couple of ex-DJs and one very experienced ex-session musician there and they all remarked favourably on Joe's performance. He even did an extra 15 minutes without being asked, stopping for a chat afterwards. Thoroughly recommended.”

A fantastic performance!

5 stars - Joe William are Highly Recommended booked Joe William for their event in Surrey June 2019

“Joe was brilliant from the outset, as we had to change the time of the performance due to the champions league final, he did this with absolutely no fuss and was extremely accommodating. Joe was very approachable before during and after his set. He formed a great rapport with the audience interacting and changing lyrics according to jokes that were going on and taking requests from the birthday boy. I would highly recommend Joe and he has a natural ability to converse with people, he was even kind enough to wear one of our festival wristbands. Thanks again Joe for your massive contribution to our fun festival.”

He was very popular on the night

“Joe was a big hit at our wedding, providing the perfect laid back beach vibes and tunes to dance to for those that wanted to kick up their dancing feet! He was a pleasure to deal with, spending time on the phone with us before the event to get the feel for his set and even learning a new song for our first dance. Thank you!”

Loved him!!!!!! Talented and kept us dancing all night!
