Joe is an incredible singer and guitarist from Merseyside with a huge repertoire of hits to suit a wide range of events. Covering everything from jive, soul and Motown to classic pop and rock, he's got something for everyone.

A very experienced performer, he has an impressive mature and soulful sound to his voice that have been compared to a young Rod Stewart or Joe Crocker.

Joe regularly plays at events, weddings and private parties, and even performed on ITV's The X Factor at the age of 18.

Joe sounded amazing and he made the evening. I would highly recommend him for an event. Liz, 40th Birthday Party, Stamford

“We can't thank Joe enough for how he created the perfect atmosphere at our wedding! We selected him due to his set list and videos on Function Central's website, but were still a little nervous at never having seen him in the flesh. We need not have worried - the videos do not do him justice and his guitar playing is awesome (the venue was packed with musicians, all of whom were very complimentary!). Myself and Barbs can't thank Joe and Function Central enough for helping to create what was a brilliant occasion for both of us. Thank you!”

Pete and Barbs, Wedding, Manchester, February 2019

Jan & Tom, Wedding, Liverpool, September 2018

“Joe has played for us many times and we always get excellent feedback. He's very professional. Highly recommended.”

Jeff, Party, Liverpool, September 2018

“Thanks for singing at our reception. We had so many comments from guests, it was lovely. Would definitely recommend you for weddings! Thanks again.”

Jen & Lee, Wedding, Liverpool, July 2018

“Joe sounded amazing and he made the evening. He was punctual, friendly and kept me in the loop in the run up to the event. I would highly recommend him for an event.”
