She is also very proud to be a founder member of the highly established Musical Theatre duo DROP DEAD DIVAS who have performed nationwide alongside their Tony Award winning Musical Director Sarah Travis.
“Jo is the fantastically talented singer who entertained us at my sister’s 60th birthday party. As well as having a voice that would grace any stage Jo also has the personality and ability to really get the party going – her enthusiasm is truly infectious and irresistible. If there was any justice Jo would be a superstar, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.”
“Jo sang at our wedding, and truly gave us those extra special and unique memories that we wanted to be part of our day. As well as all the classics that you would want at your wedding, she talked to us first about the kind of music we loved, and the atmosphere we wanted, and added in a few of our favourite songs, which gave the day that extra special twist. She oozed glamour and sparkle and seems to make everyone in the room feel like she is singing just to them…I would definitely book her again!”
Carolyn Kane (Client)
“Jo’s voice is very powerful and sends shivers down your spine! Her performance is very classy and professional. Joanna is very good too at engaging with her audience and sings a lovely medley of songs. Dont hesitate to book her you will not be disappointed!”
Janet Rolfe (client)
“We booked Joanna for a garden party in July. She was extremely professional, friendly and full of personality. She did a fantastic set and our guests all said she made the party the best one they’d been to. Joanna not only sang beautifully but got everyone joining in from ages 5 to 85. We would thoroughly recommend her and we will book her again.”
