You can book Joanna to perform at your BIRTHDAY PARTY, sing at your PRIVATE EVENT, serenade you at your WEDDING, entertain your residents at your CARE HOME, host your NEW YEAR’S EVE, or even theme an evening specifically for your requirements!
HAVE JOANNA SING FOR YOUR EVENT
If you’re looking for some stylish entertainment with some fun and flair thrown in, then look no further! Jo has appeared in major West End Musicals and large scale productions such as LES MISERABLES, ANNIE, HOT STUFF, A SLICE OF SATURDAY NIGHT, OLIVER, ROCKY HORROR SHOW and GREASE. She now performs her own solo act, which has been seen all over the country and in every type of venue from restaurants, hotels and theatres to bandstands, castles and living rooms!
Specialising in Musical Theatre, she can bring something very different to an event. Classics from Les Mis, Cabaret, Oliver or Chicago, jazz standards by the amazing George Gershwin and Rodgers and Hart – Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James and Peggy Lee, Motown hits, cheesy favourites from the 80s! Adele and Lady Gaga … her professional training and 20 years experience on stage not only means she is one of the most versatile singers you will hear, but gives her that edge that only a West End Actress could have.
HAVE JOANNA SING AT YOUR FAMILY EVENT
Joanna provides a spectacular show for your WEDDING, BIRTHDAY PARTY, ANNIVERSARY, BAR MITZVAH or PRIVATE FUNCTION. Often described as a ‘powerhouse’ and likened to a Jewish Legend, Joanna sings songs from the biggest Musicals and from Stars of yesteryear to the present day.
Whether you are after a bit of Swing, Jazz, Musical Theatre or music from the decades, Joanna can do it all! She is at ease with an audience and really does bring a slice of West End to any event she sings at.
Joanna has her own self-contained PA along with a wireless microphone that allows her to fully engage and interact with your guests.
HAVE JOANNA ENTERTAIN AT YOUR CARE HOME
Joanna brings her show to care home residents in and around Essex. Her performance is engaging, interactive and is topped off by her fabulous, spectacular vocals. The songs Joanna sings cover genres such as showtunes, jazz and swing as well as featuring songs from the 1920s through to the present day. She also covers the popular acts such as Abba, Doris Day and Vera Lynn. Joanna’s self-contained PA along with a wireless microphone allows her to fully integrate with the residents and get them joining in, reminiscing and dancing along.
MORE ABOUT JOANNA’S PERFORMANCE
She has a dynamic and theatrical presence which is perfect for dinner cabaret entertainment but her “chocolatey” voice will also blend beautifully into a background scenario should that be required. With a warm and friendly personality she is excellent at connecting with a crowd and getting a party going. Ideal entertainment for weddings, parties, dinner cabaret, restaurants, corporate, golf clubs and private functions.
Jo’s Musical Director is none other than the incredible Tony Award winner, Sarah Travis. Jo and Sarah have been performing together for many years, and when something extra special is required for an event, these two girls can be hired together. With Sarah’s spectacular talent on keyboard, Jo’s dynamic vocals and the warm bond of their longstanding friendship, they are a force to be reckoned with!
Jo and any combination of her talented colleagues are respectively from Chelmsford, Essex and Hastings, East Sussex, but will travel throughout the Home Counties and London.
Jo is the lead vocalist for READY STEADY GO the ultimate 6 piece 60s party band
which guarantees to have you dancing in the aisles all night long!
“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.”
