Starting out as a mobile DJ and later a lead/backing singer, Joe Black has enjoyed performing live over many years and has gained very valuable and broad experience, recently working as front man, Bass Player & Vocalist in a popular local 5 piece party band, Joe is able to call on his experience to present a multi-genre show that is a little different to what you might expect.

Not being restricted to just one style Joe is able to perform hit songs from the 'Old Days' right up to the present day. High quality equipment and top notch backing tracks ensure that audiences are presented with a well balanced stereo music playback and a top quality vocal sound.

A great deal of time and effort has been put into bringing you the best possible sound, often producing his own or re-mastering commercially available backing tracks. Joe insists on using high quality backing tracks and equipment, this includes world class Amplification Systems so everything you hear will be of the highest possible standard.

Health & Safety compliance means that Joe carries Public Liability Insurance and uses P.A.T. tested equipment in his shows. Joe is a fully self-contained performer and is able to provide his own complete sound and lighting setup.

  Testimonials / Feedback

Re: Joe Black

Joe Black is an experienced vocal entertainer with a good repertoire of music. I first met Joe some five years ago when he was performing as the Bass Guitar/Vocalist with ‘The BuzzBand’, Joe decided to go solo two years ago and I have enjoyed his performances.

Joe is a pleasant individual and is warmly received by his customers, he is a very professional person to deal with and is honest, trustworthy and competent. Joe also has excellent PA & lighting equipment and holds the necessary Public Liability Insurance.

I have no hesitation in recommending ‘Joe Black’ to any agent or venue.

Joe Black Show

I saw Joe Black at the Forest Tavern, Skegby, Nottingham recently. He performed a good variety of popular music. I found him very easy to listen to and he had a brilliant interaction with the audience. I hope that he is booked again sometime in the near future.

Joe Black  Vocal Performer - A Testimonial

I have been involved in the Music industry for more than twenty years, as Drummer, Bassist, Vocalist in many bands so I like to think I have some ability and confidence in talking about Musicians/Vocalists and their acts and the business in general etc.

I have watched Joe’s act several times and can honestly say I’ve enjoyed it every time!, I’m a typical musician and can be very Judgemental, but Joe is just class from beginning to end, from excellent top end equipment and brilliantly re-produced audio tracks and the guy has a great voice well suited to lot’s of styles !, you get a top notch sound every time, he also has a very good lighting system to add atmosphere to any performance. Joe has a great repartee with his audiences he’s smoother than a Tiger in a Tuxedo !.

To put it simply Joe Black is a full package one off entertainment delight, I can’t recommend him highly enough and to top it all off, Joe is a bloody good bloke and probably the least egotistical musician I’ve ever met even though he has the right to be so !.

Re: Joe Black

I have had the pleasure of seeing Mr Joe Black on a number of occasions and I have enjoyed his great sounding polished laid back style, he has a knack of making you feel at ease with his choice of easy listening, swing & up-tempo songs and he carries a top of the range PA & lighting system that is more than adequate for any venue. I have no doubt in my mind that this guy would be an asset to any entertainment agency or venue he is a credit to the industry and I would have no hesitation recommending this gentleman to any venue or agent. I have got to know Joe personally and know he will do the job and can be relied upon 100%. He is the one to watch out for.

Joe Black Cabaret

For what its worth I would just like to say that seeing you perform these days is a great experience. I have seen you 3 times recently in 3 very different settings firstly my local pub where you rocked the place, secondly at the huge charity event where you had everybody bopping from children to grandparents and finally at a local Social Club (gods waiting room) where you managed to get some very elderly people animated and exercising more than they have done for many years.

I guess what I'm trying to say tony is that your performance and set is brilliant and appeals across the board. I have long been a fan of yours, previously when you were with the band and derive even more pleasure now from your solo act.

Keep on rocking dude and please keep me informed of any local gigs.

God Bless,
Pete White

Hiya Joe

Your solo act is amazing, I have seen you on a number of occasions now and you never cease to amaze me the way you can involve your audience irrespective of their age and musical tastes. You are truly an all round entertainer and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any family or friends who require a top quality personality for any occasion.

Keep up the good work, look forward to seeing you again soon.

Joe Black

I first saw Tony French aka ( JOE BLACK ) as a solo artist at his first gig at the Beeston Marina Nr Nottingham, I thought it was a good gig he has a laid back smooth crooner type of voice which suits the songs he sings very well.

I next saw Joe Black at the Woodpecker in Mackworth Nr Derby a short time ago and was quite surprised at how much his show had improved very smooth and relaxing, a most enjoyable evening, the sound quality was top notch with a good variety of songs ,my wife and I look forward to seeing him again.
