Letters Of Reccomendation:

Joe Worrel  Band was one of the best live performances we have ever seen. He and his crew were highly professional and made the party! Their music was awesome!

-Steve H, Festival


Joe was great to work with. He called a few weeks before the wedding to go over the songs we wanted for our first dance etc. Even though they weren't songs they played regularly Joe made sure they were ready in time for the wedding. Overall I was very pleased with the band and I would highly recommend them. Derek S.

-Derek S, Wedding

 I cannot even begin to count the number of positive comments I heard throughout the evening about this band! They did a fantastic job all around and I would definitely recommend them. As a matter of fact, we are already thinking of an anniversary party for each year and this group of guys would be our FIRST choice. They rocked the party and we had a great time! Many thanks to Joe and the band.

I have been planning company parties for over ten years, and this was by far the best! Lot's of energy and the dance floor was always packed. I would highly recommend the Joe Worrel Band - you won't be disappointed.

-Stacy J, Corporate Function


We were very happy with Joe's performance - The music was excellent and Joe interacted with our group very well. I heard wonderful reviews from every person I talked to about his band and their performance. Joe was very easy to work with and to get in touch with - he made the whole experience great and several asked me how we found Joe so I gave them the gigmasters website. We would certainly use Joe again in the future
