I'm a New Orleans Pianist and band leader with over 40 years of experience. Credits include Maison Bourbon for six years, Ritz Carlton Hotel, Westin Hotel, American Queen and Natchez riverboat and I've also performed at French Quarter Fest and Jazz Fest.
I enjoy working with my clients and fill all requests with a goal of making you and all of your guests happy.
I have a huge repertoire which includes all of the great standards from ragtime to Dixieland to Sinatra to Beatles and show tunes.
I'm currently booking bands on the Creole Queen. I've also written and produced music for TV shows including “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

I was thoroughly happy with Joe. He even played a little longer than the 1 hour cocktail.

Joe is an excellent musician whose talent added the perfect touch to our wedding reception. I couldn't have been happier with his performance and personality. He is very friendly and open to suggestions or requests. I would highly recommend him to anybody.

Fantastic performance. Just what we asked for: low key, beautiful music. Very professional. Showed up on time, prepared, appropriately dressed. (despite the 100 degree heat and the fact that we were hours away) Accommodated us when we moved to a different room mid-set. Took requests without being smarmy or taking the lime light away from the wedding party. Joe is about as far away from the honky-tonk badonkadonk/hey makarana/humpty-dance/MC-Gasta type stuff I’ve witnessed DJ’s do at other weddings, and for the same price (or better). Highly recommended if you want your event to be elegant or romantic.

Joe played the organ at our ceremony & keyboard at our reception. He arranged for a vocalist (ceremony) & bass player & percussionist (reception). He seemed slightly out of his element with the organ music at the ceremony (we had selected non-standard items & had made special arrangements). It is worth noting that when the vocalist who was originally scheduled for the ceremony fell sick the night before, Joe arranged for a substitute, who did a great job. Joe was responsive. The music at the reception was flawless. Highest possible rating for the trio—if you want light jazz, show tunes, etc. with a classy sound, then we would recommend him without reservation.
