About
Josh Walker is guitarist, composer, and educator working in the greater DC area and beyond. Over the last 17 years, he has performed in a wide variety of groups throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Mexico, and South and Central America. Some of these performances include; The Montreal International Jazz Festival, The Toronto International Jazz Festival, The International Association of Jazz Educators Conference, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the 150th anniversary celebration of the opening of the port of Yokohama, Japan. Josh currently holds the guitar chair in Washington's own 'Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra', a 17 person big band that performs every Monday night at the historic Bohemian Caverns on U Street in DC. All of this activity is in addition to playing for countless weddings, private parties, corporate functions and similar events, and serving as a member of the guitar faculty at the Levine School of Music.
Josh has shared the stage with artists such as McCoy Tyner, Jason Mraz, Gary Thomas, and Lonnie Plaxico. He has opened concerts for artists such as Charlie Byrd and the Washington Guitar Quintet, Randy Brecker, and Donny McCaslin. In 2008, Josh released his first album of all original compositions, entitled 'Inertia', on Guitar Nine Records. Josh earned his undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, completed part of his graduate work at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, and finished his graduate work at Howard University in 2010. In 2011, Josh was chosen from a nation-wide pool of candidates as the recipient of Downbeat Magazine's annual award for 'Best Blues, Pop, or Rock Solo by an Instrumentalist at the Graduate College Level'.

We hired Josh Walker Trio for an convention event. He and his trio provided background jazz during a reception. He arrived promptly and ready to perform. He and his trio members were excellent musicians and we enjoyed their playing. He added the right touch to the reception. I'd hire him again and his sound really lends itself to receptions, dinners, events where you want really good music to add that sparkle to an event. Well done Josh!! Thank you for a great job at our conference!

Josh was extremely flexible in dealing with last minute changes to the booking. He was always polite and responded to in a timely manner. His trio chose a great set for the event and played at the perfect volume.

Joshua and his two counterparts were extremely professional, punctual, and talented. I have no real complaints. Our customers really enjoyed their music, and they kept the music soft and romantic, as I requested.

My guests and I were thoroughly impressed by their professionalism, overall talent and how accommodating to requests and extended play time that the band was. We were so pleased with their level of talent, several guests were inspired to dance and put in request after request. I chose this band because they had youtube videos and many of the other bands did not have similar media samples, but you know this band vastly out-shined their apparent skill level and professionalism in person, as was presented on the videos. Thanks again and I look forward to seeing them at all my future events.

It was lovely to be able to share with Josh a vague idea of what we were looking for, and then see how exquisitely he took my idea and made into beautiful reality. His music fit the mood perfectly, and ended our gala's evening with the smooth jazz and Latin flare we were looking for. He was also very flexible with our somewhat complicated logistical requests! I would absolutely recommend the Trio.
