Cello Joe was great to work with throughout the entire process--from coordinating prior to the event to setting up and performing on the day.
I originally reached out to Cello Joe to have him entertain my party with his amazing cello skills, but ended up hiring him to DJ due to my restricted budget. When my schedule went a little awry, he graciously kept the party going past our agreed-upon time and even busted out his cello to elevate the atmosphere while asking nothing in return.
When you hire Cello Joe, you not only get a professional entertainer, you also get a solid event-coordinating teammate. Do not hesitate to hire Cello Joe for your event.
Cello Joe is awesome! I first heard Joey's music at a yoga festival, and loved it, and realized that he would be perfect for my fiance's and I's wedding. Pretty much my favorite music ever is Cello/Viola/Violin looped over electronic (so that part was pretty obvious), and I also wanted something that wasn't too "wedding-ish" yet at the same time would please the more traditional family members while still being interesting for my friends. Plus, I really wanted my wedding to be a very personal experience, and Joey seemed like somebody I would want to be part of the inner circle, and not just a hired musician. I finally got up the nerve to ask Joey if he would consider, and, lucky for us, he was keen and the date worked!
Besides the totally amazing music, Joey was super easy to work with. Joey was very good about asking exactly what we wanted, what times we wanted, etc., so I imagine that if you had a structured wedding plan, he would provide exactly what you wanted at an exact time. I, however, am not a good planner. I think my only instructions were "something wedding-ish that isn't the actual wedding song" and gave him a "schedule" that of course was only vaguely reflective of the actual timing of events.
As if by magic, Joey started and stopped at all the exact right times. He went right along with the day as it unfolded without prompting, which was a godsend because if he had needed structured instructions, it wouldn't have happened. If there needed to be music, Cello Joe was playing, and if it was a part of the wedding where there needed to be silence, the music just stopped. Cello Joe definitely played a part in making it all happen.
Everybody LOVED the music, from my closest friends to most distant relatives. And it was nice just having Joe there as a part of the wedding. Plus now whenever I see Cello Joe's name as part of the line up at a festival or party, I get a little giddy thinking "Yup, he was at our wedding. We're cool like that."
We had the option of having a DJ for an hour that played with Cello Joe, and that was really cool too. Basically, we had Cello Joe play by himself for the outside processional, and then him and the DJ play together during the first part of the reception.
I can't recommend Cello Joe enough. Thanks for some wonderful music
Through a friend,I luckily found CelloJoe to play at our wedding in Occidental, CA. From the moment I called him, he was incredibly professional, accommodating and kind. I did not have a worry in the world when I hired him and for great reason! As I got ready to walk down the aisle, his whimsical and heart steady melodies filled the Redwoods with all the beautiful raw emotion of a wedding. I definitely feel that he created an enchantment that day- after the ceremony, people couldn't help but smile and dance with his beats. We are forever thankful that CelloJoe was able to join us that day and express his magic for our family and friends. He is a true artist and wonderful performer.
CelloJoe is an amazing performer. He was definitely the musical highlight of our wedding. Everyone loved his music and it is perfectly primed for a ceremony or reception. He also has such a warm/inviting presence. He also went way above/beyond and taped his performance for us! I'd highly recommend CelloJoe for any gigs you might have - he's unique and possesses amazing musical talent.
