About
I have many years experience playing as a solo jazz-guitarist providing atmosphere and entertainment for casual dining and wineries in Missouri and Colorado.

I can provide up to three hours of music as a solo performer. I play many of the most popular jazz standards such as "The Girl from Ipanema", "A Foggy Day", "All Blues" to jazz rock including: Sleepwalk, Steely Dan's "Peg" and "Home at last", Sting's "Fields of Gold" and much more.

I welcome the opportunity to provide a casual but sophisticated atmosphere to your wedding, restaurant, bar or special event . I hope to speak with you soon.

Some locations where I have played and will be playing are:
Brookdale Green Mountain on Fat Tuesday. The residents there really loved to hear jazz to Steely Dan. They're a great audience.
I will be playing at:
The Elk Run Assisted Living Community April 5th
The Golden Moon Speakeasy June 28th
The Brookforest Inn July 14th
The Gardens at Columbine August 22nd

Here's a bit more information on me:

I have been playing guitar professionally for many years, in New York, Montana and Missouri. For 30 years he has been performing, recording, teaching, studying and composing. Learning is a lifelong process.
While at the Aaron Copland School of Music, he studied guitar with William Matthews. He also studied with Edward Smaldone, Henry Wienberg and Bruce Sailor. With Edward Smaldone, a Composition professor who composed his own music compositions via computer, Joseph was introduced to midi composition realizations.
In New York as a performer I can be heard on many recordings. Joseph was a founding member of the Long Island avant garde duet, Inner Landescapes and the experimental music band QUIET featuring Cathedral keyboards, Tom Doncourt.
I taught guitar at the University of Montana for eight years and studied with composer Patrick Williams and Digital Tech Guru Dennis Thermond. I have also composed for television, radio, stage productions and small films. He composed the score for "I Am the Longs", the winning feature film at the 2006 PAH-FEST film festival. He also scored and performed a theater production of Anton Checkhov's Three Sisters.
I can also be heard accompanying the grandchildren of Maria Von Trapp on the Von Trapp Children Vol 1, Charlie Russell's MONTANA!, and Off The Wall, The New Jubes & Virtual Orchestra.
In Missouri, I was a regular solo jazz guitar performer at local wineries and ran jam sessions for CMSU music students around town. I have also made several performance appearances on the radio KOKO show "Uncorked". He also studied improv privately with composer, arranger, bandleader, pianist Michael Pagán. At the Conservatory at UMKC he studied classical guitar with Doug Neidt.
In Southern Colorado, I performed with the SLV Big Band and worked with students on jazz performance. I led jam sessions in Alamosa and Monte Vista for students and local jazz enthusiasts. I also directed and arranged tunes for the Adams State Jazz Band and the theater production of The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis De Sade.

Joseph was so accommodating! I changed our event date 3 times and each time he was flexible with his schedule. Joe is very talented musician, his acoustics really added to the ambiance of our corporate vent. I recommend him for any event or special occasion you may have.
