'A fantastic and agile musician with an exceptional vocal ability. I would highly recommend if you want a personalised, bespoke and flawless performer'. (Sophie Evans - Private Event)
He is renowned for his powerful renditions of well-known pop/folk/rock/indie songs and has built a reputation for his performances at weddings and private corporate events.
'We listened to over 100 artists trying to find someone who fitted our vibe for our wedding…Then we found Joe. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Superb voice and guitarist! Such a talented guy!' (Bride, Julia).
‘You were amazing…you helped create a very special day for us’ (Bride Harriette Sidebottom).

I booked joe at short notice to perform at my sons wedding on anglesey. He as brilliant, totally professional and reliable. He listened to exactly the atmosphere the bride and groom were hoping to create with his music, he sang and played beautifully to entertain the guests and even did a lovely rendition of elvis "cant help falling in love with you " as the bride walked down the aisle. Everyone was very impressed with him. If you are thinking of hiring joe for a special occasion, i can definitely recommend him .thank you so much joe, you were just perfect.

I cannot praise joe enough, the communication before our event was informative and nothing seemed too much trouble for him. He learned 3 of my husbands favourite songs to play on the night and they even had a bit of a jam at the end where my husband played the guitar and joe sang, it was wonderful. I loved every minute of the set that i saw/heard, being the host of the party i had to be here there and everywhere so couldn't just sit back and enjoy listening to joes fabulous voice however from the feedback i had from the rest of the guests they loved it to. We took a few of joes cards and handed them out to our guests so we hope to have the opportunity to see him perform again in the near future and i would not hesitate to book him for any events/partys that we might hold to. Thank you joe, you really made the night special and memorable.

We were absolutely blown away last night by the amazing Joe Doonan. Joe has an amazing voice that just captured everyone in the room. Not only that but he is such an approachable guy and a pleasure to be around. We could have listened to him all night. We have no problems in recommending Joe for any event and cannot wait for him to visit York again when we will most definetely be there to watch. Top top night, brilliant, amazing.

We listened to over 100 artists trying to find someone who fitted our vibe for our wedding. Someone who liked our indie rock type of music, and would be happy to learn a few songs especially for our day. Then we found Joe. From start to finish he was communicative, nothing was too much trouble, and he travelled all the way to Snowdonia to do our wedding. Joe agreed to play acoustic guitar instrumentals during our ceremony as we wanted a ‘live’ atmosphere, and then came to our reception and did a further 2 x sets in the evening, singing and playing live. Not only is Joe a fantastic singer, but a genuinely nice and down to earth guy. What an absolute pleasure to have you as part of our wedding day Joe. This guy could seriously charge an awful lot more than he does, but instead he remains affordable to appeal to all audiences. Highly recommend! (Needless to say, superb voice and guitarist! Such a talented and cool guy!)

We just would like to thank you, you were amazing! The singing at the church was beautiful and people could not praise you enough, including the venue East Riddlestone Hall and photographer Emily Olivia Photography! We really appreciated all your hard work, with the learning of new songs and coming to our rehearsal. Again, thank you so much, you helped create a very special day for us.
